{ Rustic Cottage Style Christmas Office}

Happy Monday everyone!!! Christmas music has officially started playing on the radio, the temps are super cool now & I may or may not have decorated outside for Christmas this weekend..I mean come on people it is November hahaha! For me decorating & styling our house for Christmas is actually relaxing..It soothes my nerves & to be honest life has been super chaotic with new business/job stuff etc... This whole 2016 has been insane..so I think my little heart deserves some joy & that just so happens to be decorating for my Christmas crazy obsessed self haha! Today I'm sharing a space I hardly decorate or show on the blog at all because honestly it's not finished completely!! My office is that one space in the house that is partially finished, but I still like to cozy it up for Christmas since I do spend a lot of time in here. We have my husband's office upstairs, in another room, but I opted to keep my office in this room in our lower level because it has built-in shelving for my decor storage & our bunny aka Mr. Wibbles my office mascot is down here :)))! Come take a peek at some little rustic pieces I added for Christmas in my office all for FREE! 

This picture has been with us since our very first home in 2008. It was a gift from my aunt & I still love it to this day. I simply draped some garland lights around it & the "office" sign from +HomeGoods 


Again, this is my office & work aka slop area for paint & everything else so it's not perfect, but always practical haha. I just styled some simple paint brushes in an old mason & set one of my older cameras out with some storage boxes from +IKEA USA ...super easy & cozy. The old tobacco can was a free find & the flowers are from +Hobby Lobby !


I ran out of trees { GASP} so I used this little talking tree & just added some vintage red ornaments I had laying around from last year!


I've been using a white parson chair for a few months now, because my back has been horrible, so I thought I'd use an old plaid blanket & comfy pillow to add some Christmas  warmth & charm..


We have a ton of these old vintage galvanized tubs, so I used one to store wrapping paper & other paper goods!


The baskets were a gift a few years back & I just store my paints & waxes in them..Again easy peasy!!!


This little space is sooo much more cozy now with some lights, a tree & some yummy Christmas candles!! I mean for just about nothing I styled my whole office..win win right?! 
What do you guys think about this cozy little space? Do you decorate your work area  for the holidays?

Wishing you all a lovely Monday!!
