Hey guys! Welcome to my mercury glass Christmas home tour!
Getting this Christmas “home tour” (it’s just our front room) together and posted before Christmas was quite an adventure this year. I was WAY behind on getting this posted as it was, and then to top it all off, one of the light strings on our Christmas tree decided to burn out. Talk about going out of my mind frustrating! You can read about my Christmas light saga here.
You can see the burned out light string in this quick video I made of our front room. You can also see why I don’t make a habit of singing Christmas songs. I didn’t notice the lights weren’t working until after I made the video. It’s funny how when I’ve worked on a project for so long I may not catch stuff as obvious as a section of Christmas tree lights being burned out.
Obviously I finally got everything done, so on with the tour!
I do most of the Christmas decorating in our front (living) room since it’s the room that faces out to the street, and also the first room our family and friends see when they come over.
This is Baby Girl, one of our 11 cats. This is her favorite place to sleep in the house. She seems rather unenthused about me taking her picture.
I put some extra work into decorating the staircase this year. All the garland and swags were put together using stuff I bought at Hobby Lobby.
All the ornaments on the tree are from Amazon. They are the cheapest place I’ve found by far to buy mercury glass style ornaments in decent quantities.
People either love or hate this entryway table I repurposed from a coffee table.
I used a lot of flameless candles in the Christmas decor this year. Gotta love flameless candles – no messy melted wax to deal with and I won’t burn my house down, which is always a plus.
Once again, Baby Girl is a lot more interested in something she sees outside than me taking her photo.
I do love this tree! Especially since all the lights are working on it again.
I loved this sideboard in our entryway when I made it over a few years ago, and I still love it now! It’s always so much fun to decorate for the holidays.
I used flocking powder for the first time to flock the trees and wreath. It’s a lot easier than I thought it would be! If you’ve never done it and would like to try it, you can read my tutorial here.
I also put together a mercury glass holiday tablescape a couple of weeks ago (and I actually got it done on time!).
That wraps up my Christmas home tour for 2018! I just realized today is Yule, so have a Blessed Yule if you celebrate! Otherwise, have a very Merry Christmas if you celebrate, and Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to all!
See you next year! 🙂
