Is there anything better than a flocked Christmas tree? Hell to the no! I bought this tree from Walmart a few years ago for $120, after searching endlessly, and only finding what I thought were overpriced options. The flocking is top notch in my book. It doesn’t come off the way you think it would, and the branches are heavily coated. If your in the market for a flocked tree, this is the one to beat!
Before it gets all Christmasy up in here, I’m going to show you some pictures of my revamped Ikea coffee table, since they are sharing the same space, and its hard to take a photo of one without the other. In case you don’t remember, I recently shared this chalkboard table DIY. Well, I’m already (mere weeks later) tired of it, and changed it out for the old one. This is how I roll, people. I change things. A LOT. The old and current table is the “Strind” from Ikea. There is no longer a clear glass option for this table, it only comes in white, and black.
My recent obsession with all things brass/gold spurred this transformation. It’s amazing what a can of Gold Rust-Oleum spray paint can do! Before the table had an undeniable industrial feel, and now it is pretty, and chic.
Now, back to Christmas trees…
A few years ago I fell in love with this vintage oriental themed tree by Mathew Mead:
My interpretation of this fabulous tree uses mini party fan decorations:
I am in love! The leopard
skirt is actually a couple yards of fabric that I got for cheap at Joanne’s. It all seems very Christmas Mad Men style to me, with the bar cart being right by the tree. The addition of the shimmery disco ball makes it truly festive, and over the top!
I have a mixture of both new and vintage ornaments. I love to scour the thrift stores every year, and find new vintage beauties to add to my collection My favorite ornaments are actually vintage reproductions by Christopher Radko for Shiny Brite.
