Simple Christmas Display Shelf in My Kitchen!Christmas Display Shelf – House Log Holder

Some of you may have noticed the other day that there’s a little stand on my counter. In case you were wondering about it, today I’ll share the story.

As we were setting up our first bit of Christmas decor before Thanksgiving, I thought back to how we had decorated our open shelving in our previous kitchen. It was so fun to have shelves to style especially during the holidays.

In this kitchen we decided not to install wall shelving (sorrow), but I knew from the beginning that I could get creative with a free standing unit.

I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for the right piece, but so far I haven’t found the right one.

You might remember seeing this photo above. I shared it on the blog years ago as well as featured it in my book Simple Gatherings. It is showing a nesting table I repurposed on my counter as creative stand for a dessert bar. I later used it on a counter in our bathroom, so it sure came in handy!

Well, that idea sparked a simple idea for this house!

Unfortunately, I think I lost that particular table in the move or left it at my old house. Womp, womp, womp. I’ve been a little sad about it ever since.

Well, my mom and I were shopping at Target right before Thanksgiving and I saw this log holder sitting on the floor in the Magnolia Hearth & Hand section. I had seen it online and thought it looked so cute, but this was the first time I saw it in person.

I knew it would be adorable sitting by the fireplace or door stacked with logs, of course, but my mind wandered to some other possibilities. The nesting table image popped into my mind at that moment! So, I decided I wanted to try the log holder first on my counter to give me a little display space for Christmas!

WEIRD?

OR … WHY NOT?

I decided that it should be a WHY NOT?!

I know, I can’t seem to use things in normal ways. Bless.

But if loving this is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

It won’t be a permanent feature in here, so WHY NOT enjoy it for now? It was so simple. And, it brings me joy to see this little spot of festivity every day.

I kind of love it.

And who doesn’t enjoy a festive little coffee or hot chocolate stand, especially this time of year?

It doesn’t take much effort at Christmas time to make any space feel more magical. It’s like you get to live in a storybook for a few weeks of the year!

And isn’t magical how Christmas should feel?

Calling all home decor lovers (and I’m just guessing we are probably ALL home decor lovers around here?)! I have really great news about my coloring book. It looks like Amazon will be releasing The Inspired Room adult coloring book early! You may even get it next week if you already pre-ordered or if you order it now. I’m SO excited about that!

This adorable home decor adult coloring book is only $8.80 on Amazon right now, WHAT? That’s a crazy good deal, retail price is $12.99. If you don’t find it locally where you see other coloring books sold, would you do me a favor and let the store buyer or owner know about this one? I would appreciate it. There are very few interior design coloring books like this out there so I really want people who would enjoy it to be able to find it.

Besides being a fun way to relax (trust me, if you haven’t colored in years coloring will take you back to carefree relaxing and creative days of childhood!), it is going to make an adorable gift. This would also be a super fun way to bring your girlfriends together to spend time around the table chatting and coloring.

I’m really proud of how this book turned out, it is such a great quality coloring book with super adorable artwork on every page. There are 80 pages, each page is single sided and perforated so you can remove or frame your favorites. You’ll find rooms to design color schemes, pages with fun vignettes, furniture, accessories, and patterns to color. You’ll even find a few adorably designed quote pages that can be torn out and used as wall art!

My favorite thing about coloring these pages is how you can transform the rooms inside the book simply with your own special color choices! It’s so fun to dream up color schemes. My girls and I have tested these out for months now and it’s so fun seeing the uniqueness of each of our rooms and vignette pages.
