homemade wreath and thrift store mirror

I just Looove this time of year for so many reasons :-) One of them is being able to decorate my house and putting up our Christmas tree. We decided to do a real tree again this year and I am so so SO happy we did! We actually got ours at Wal Mart and it looks amazing! The only problem is that when we got home we had to trim it quite a we had all this leftover stuff....and let me tell you- I have had the MOST fun with it all :-)

First of all, I do not know what I love most about this picture!! Could it be the cute giraffe pillows I got on clearance at Wal Mart this summer?
What about the mirror that my mom found at a thrift store for $5.00!??? (which by the way, my mom is THE queen b for finding cute things at thrift stores/goodwill/yard sales! There is NO way I could have furnished my house and salon with cute things without her!!) Anyway, about the mirror, it used to be an old medicine cabinet...Well, we took the medicine cabinet part off- painted it with an antique white- distressed it- then glazed it with a mocha glaze :-) Love. Love. Love.
Or it could be the wreath that I made with leftovers from our tree :-) I just wrapped it all with a craft wire... hot glued some pine cones on.... spray painted it all gold.... then tied a cute ribbon on top :-)
But maybe my favorite thing is that I can see our Christmas tree lights in the mirror :-) I just don't know, all I know it that I absolutely LOVE it. I could look at it all day!

Thanks so much for stopping by :-) To see more amazing Christmas decor check out the DIY Showoff!!
