If there is one topic people talk to me about most it would have to be hands down CHRISTMAS!!

For today’s #makeovermonday project we transformed our very random undecorated fireplace to get ready for a white Christmas in the Haigler House.

Here’s all the details on how we got here!

First of all – Brock was home with me most of the day and this is how the living room ended up:

Niccccceee, right?

So, that amazing husband of mine cleaned up all the toys.

While he did that I started cleaning off the fireplace. One thing I wanted to keep is this set of hurricane candle holders. We’ve had these for 13 years! Someone gave them as a wedding gift and for years I’ve had an eye on painting them.

Joy and Chloe came over to help….

Looks like helping for sure.

Finally I got them to painting.

And meanwhile….Brock happened to the living room AGAIN!

Does this happen to anyone else, OVER AND OVER AND OVER??

The candles turned out sooo pretty!!

I wish we had painted them a long time ago. They make the entire fireplace brighter.

Then I changed out the top of the mantle to add some Christmas.

I love silver sparkle trees and red rose trees and green feather trees! I just love trees of all kind!

It all came together nicely and it’s starting to feel like Christmas, y’all!

And we ended the night with the toys put away, even better!

Changing out an area in your home using the home decor you already have is such a fun way to get a new look for cheap! Have items you love but wish they were a different color? Don’t be afraid to paint and change your look completely.
