Christmas Nights Tour

Christmas Lights at Night Living Room Tour with many amazing bloggers!

Merry Christmas friends! If you are visiting from one of the other fabulous bloggers on the Christmas Nights Tour, then welcome. I am so happy you are here! I’m Sonya and this is my blog where I share about all things home decor.

When Rachel from Maison de Pax asked if I would like to be part of her Christmas Nights Tour I couldn’t say yes fast enough! Really, do you follow her blog? If not, you should!

Christmas Nights Tour

Lights during the holidays are best seen at night!

Before I get into all of the photos there is one thing you should know, taking photo’s at night is hard. I mean getting the tripod and all of the manual settings just right is for professionals. So keep that in mind while looking through this post. I am not a professional, I just play one on this blog, lol.

If you are following me on Instagram (@athomewiththebarkers) you will know that we decided that the holidays would be the perfect time for a mantle makeover. I will have a full tutorial on the blog in the new year all about it but for now, here it is!

I am thrilled with how it turned out! My husband rocks! Last years Christmas mantel will give you a good idea of the difference!

This is the second year we have had a skinny tree and I do love the look and the space it saves but sometimes I wish it was a little bit fatter. I can’t complain though, it was an after Christmas deal!

Repainting the TV cabinet was a recent DIY as well. If you’d like to see how it looked before you can check out that post HERE.

That little denim jacket isn’t just a prop. It belongs to my niece. She left it here Thanksgiving. I hung it up until she comes back tonight for Christmas. I’m her favorite aunt by the way. 🙂

Christmas Decor with Swag Garland

I made the Drop Cloth Christmas Stockings last year. I am usually one for tradition and keeping most of my special Christmas items the same but I’ve changed the stockings a few times over the years. I’ve kept them all because I figured one day the kids may want a set to take to their own home and they will still be special.

Handmade ornaments are always hung on our tree and red berries, I love red berries!

This year I added a tree to the foyer. I did a faux flock treatment on it with paint! YES, paint. You can see the tutorial HERE.
