CREATING A SWOON WORTHY CHRISTMAS - gold and white






Yesterday I shared all the photos of our front entry all decked out for the Christmas season. Today I wanted to share how I created the look.


I decorated this little room over three week days, when life
spared me the time. Truthfully I had a lot going on else where
and I want to reassure my readers I did create this while
 life kept happening. I find it easier to work on a blank slate
so in preparation the area was emptied a few days earlier.

5pm - I quickly painted the mirror while dinner was cooking
8pm - I hung the mirror and wall sconces, then added the candle holders

 3pm - 4pm I dragged the table into the room and unpacked
all my gold xmas decor around the table to easily pick from.
