Yesterday we finished putting up our Christmas decorations. This year we added new stockings and a new stocking holder. In years past we've just laid the stockings on the couch on Christmas eve (tacky, I know). In our first house, two homes ago, we had a mantle and I've kind of been sad about not having one in our new house (yet, we will someday). This year I decided to come up with a way to display our stockings with our other Christmas decorations. Luckily my husband was able to help me out with this project (a lot)...I don't think he trusts me with a saw. Anyway, Justin and I transformed an old end table into a new stocking holder. Yes, you read that right and old end table into a stocking holder. This end table has been sitting in our basement untouched for a few years. I've had a hard time parting with it because it is part of the very first living room set we purchased after we got married. (Our first "real furniture".)
champagne spray paint (I like Krylon the best). It's so easy to use and it covers so well. (I used it to paint the picture frame in this post too.) The final touch was an eye hook at the top of the post to hold a small curtain rod. By the way, if you don't have an extra end table lying around (aka, you're not a pack rat, like me) you can use a * wood spindle.
So, what do you think? I'm kinda loving it...okay, not kinda. I really love how it turned out.
Tiny Prints sent them my way. They have the most adorable new stockings in their store. If you order now you'll get them right in time for your holiday decorations. This is the first time we've had matching stockings and I'm so excited about it. These stockings are made of a canvas type material and are such high quality. I know they'll last for years to come, even with my rambunctious bunch of kiddos.
