Golden Christmas




If you've been reading this blog for a year or so, or hang out with me pretty much ever {because this is a tale that bears repeating}, you may remember the Black Christmas Tree Incident of 2014--you can read about it here. After perusing Pinterest Christmas ideas one day, I saw where a lady had spray painted her tree. That seemed do-able, and thanks to my fiance, light holder, and all-around craftiness supporter, I decided to spray paint his black Christmas tree.

The original post that inspired me used floral spray paint, but that didn't seem convenient to me. I pretty much always have a can or two of metallic gold spray paint on hand {I may or may not have a problem spray painting random stuff into golden gems}, so I thought I would try that out. Two cans later, I am thrilled with the results! I may have developed a small case of carpal tunnel after all that spraying, but we no longer have a black tree.

Halfway through the spraying.

Pre-ornaments

I've already received quite a few wedding themed Christmas ornaments. They all fall into that gold/white/metallic design category, so I thought I would display all of them here! I'm so excited to have more than one big tree in the house...I did grow up in a home that had at least seven each year. And I know...I do have "Ms" on my tree even though I'm not yet an "M." They're just too pretty to keep in their boxes for another year!
