Farmhouse Breakfast Nook Update & Christmas Sneak Peek

Hello everyone! I hope that y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It has taken awhile but we are finally getting back to normal everyday life and things are coming together around the new house. I won't lie it has all been more than a tad overwhelming at times but as we check off things from our to-do list I feel so much better.

One of the things that has made me happy is being able to deck the halls! I love the holidays and focusing on unpacking the house and worrying about decorating was a bit much so I put the tree up and called it a day. Well that was the plan till Littlest asked if the tree was all I was doing this year. I then decided to get those creative juices flowing again and found the holiday cheer. I can not wait to share it with y'all! I do not have all the spaces completed that I normally do but honestly they will have to wait till next year. I was able though to get the living room festive and am working on completing the breakfast nook. I also have been busy adding some Christmas cheer outside as well. Y'all will have to check back in to see those reveals!

Today I am sharing an update, well actually kinda two updates with our breakfast nook. This pic was taken on closing day back at the end of October.

One of the first things I knew I was going to be doing was to change out the light fixture in the breakfast nook. It was way too modern for my taste. Before I share can I tell y'all just how much my cross buck door and floor make me happy!?

Back to the lighting,Mr. Front Porch has been a good sport because over the Thanksgiving break we changed out light after light after light in the new house.

This was one of the first lights that I had purchased back in the spring. I loved how it looked when we hung it up. Then I started decorating for Christmas and decided that the candelabra sleeves were too plain. If you remember last year around this time I jazzed up our kitchen sink chandy by updating the candelabra sleeves with a quick DIY. I could have completed the same project this time around but honestly I did not have the time for that. If you missed that make over or just want to see it again click here.

Since I was not taking the time to DIY I ended up ordering some new sleeves off of Amazon.

I know it is hard to tell with the lighting but trust me when I say it gives new life to the chandelier. Such an easy update! As you can see I have Christmas happening in here and hope to get it completed this week and will share. Then y'all can see the chandelier in the daylight.

Thank you for continuing to follow along with me on our journey this year. It has been a long year and I know that I have not been around as much but I promise in the new year I will be back to sharing up a storm! Did I mention I have a to-do list!?;)

Do not forget to keep checking back for my holiday decorating posts! They are coming soon I promise!
