Our Christmas Mantle - {before and after} Merry and Bright!


Hi guys, today I'm sharing the Before and After of our simple Christmas Mantle! If you'll remember just after the Holidays last year in January we gave our family room a makeover painting the entire family room, kitchen and red brick fireplace a very light gray.

This time last year our fireplace looked like this below....

And here's what our fireplace looks like now...

Wow, what a difference!  It's so much lighter and brighter now.  Here's a closer look below at our simple Christmas mantle decor. I went with a red, white and gold color combination this year.

Now of course all the Christmas decor I've used here is super affordable!   The tan and cream Christmas stockings are from Tarjay ;)  And the sparkly gold twigs and faux poinsettia leaves are from Old Time Pottery!  The faux mercury glass candle votives are from Michaels.  

And here are a few more Instagram pictures of our home all decked out for Christmas...
