Christmas in the Boathouse Conservatory

                                                                            Good morning!
                                                        This morning I am sharing a few photos
                                                        of our little conservatory on the back(south)
                                                        of our boathouse all decked out for the
                                                       Christmas season.

                                                          I think it has a cozy English Country look.
                                                             I love this green wire birdcage that
                                                             I bought at Homesense a few years
                                                               The old thrift shop skates that I
                                                               painted blue and added some dark
                                                               Annie Sloan wax to and some fake
                                                               fur   ~ glued on.If you like the look
                                                               but don't have the wax some brown stain
                                                              will give an aged look as well.
                                                            Looks like Santa has arrived already!

                                                                              Warm and Cozy

    The Boathouse

                                                   For those of you who have not seen the exterior of
                                                   our little Boathouse, I have included a few winter
                                                   shots from previous winters.You can see the nook
                                                   is built out on the left (east) side.

                                                      The little conservatory is on the back ~ we used old
                                                      wooden french doors for it.
                                So the only part I haven't shared yet is the loft and I
                                           haven't given it a Christmas makeover yet ....hopefully
                                           one day soon!

                                                          Thank you for visiting and welcome to my
                                                          new followers as well.

                                                         Hope you have a wonderful day!

I just love your Little boathouse. And right now it sure gives us a Christmas feeling that the weather don't do, lol.
Have a great day.

Hi Carolyn,
Such a beautiful place to spend some time!

I admired all the photos with their Christmas touches until I arrived at the outdoor scene. That took my breath away. So lovely.

Dear Carolyn,

Your boathouse looks enchanting! Summer or winter. Hope I will be able to see it for myself one day. Looks like a lovely place to spend the day or to sleep. So romantic! You decorated it wonderfully!

I just love this little retreat, Carolyn! It looks so pretty decorated for Christmas. I love the ice skates. The color is great. I can't wait to get mine out of the attic and set up somewhere. Not sure where I will display them yet this year.

Carolyn, I am in love with your boat house! This is the first time seeing it in the winter and the house is gorgeous. Looks like a painting.

Carolyn, you've done it again. Not only do I have a pergola in my garden trying hard to look like yours, I've just purchased a pair of old ice skates off Ebay. I liked yours so much I'm going to try it. What kind of paint did you use?

DRad said...

What color of paint is the door painted at the boathouse ? We have fond memories of the boathouse and the dock �� remembering that day and my husbands dip in your pond ������ I love remembering that day !!
