It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!

This room has a horrible layout and I wish pictures could show the actual space I'm working with. Our "fire place room" has on several occasions almost caused me major meltdowns!You should have seen the "before" prior to this one! My boyfriend had a random bed in that room at one time...we've had about 6 couches piled in there, it's been quite the junk room!

I just don't know what I'll do with it after Christmas!
It might have to stay Christmas all year round :P
We hope to eventually put a table and chairs along with chandelier.

It's still in the process of becoming completed but I think we're heading in the right direction!
The candles are flameless and looks really neat when we turn off the lights.

I'm terrible at remembering to take photos before and after I complete projects. :(
I think that'll be one of my New Year's resolutions!
I bought the holder at Hobby Lobby for $1.50
And the berry branches at Hobby Lobby for only $1

Not too shabby for only $2.50!

I found this shutter at the Kane County Flea Market in August, since then I haven't been able to find it's purpose! A few weeks ago Mike moved it in that corner since it was in his way. We both just loved how it looked there! I am planning on putting all our Christmas Cards in it.

Besides the Christmas Stockings & their holders everything was taken out of our storage attic and finally put to use! :)
