I’m having a little fun over here at redheadcandecorate.com this week.
Not only am I decorating for Christmas, but I’m also hosting several giveaways which always makes me feel wonderful because I enjoy giving back to my followers. Especially this time of year. (SEE ALL GIVEAWAYS AT BOTTOM OF POST)
Before we get to the generous giveaways, I have a confession (and a pretty table 😆 ). After we arrived home from visiting my family in NY for Thanksgiving, I got the itch to move furniture around. I’ve had this itch for about 37 years now and it comes and goes. Luckily, I have a husband who likes to scratch.
This cute “Colorful Christmas Table” is usually on the other side of the wall by our wood burning fireplace in our kitchen. Here, let me show you a few years ago when I posted our “Vintage Christmas“…we have a gas fireplace on one side (above), and a wood burning fireplace on the other (below).
That one above is a real wood burning fireplace and we spend most of our time nestled at this table because it gets pretty cold in Michigan. However, I grew tired of blogging/eating/doing everything here, and we all needed a change.
So, we put on our muscles and brought that table over to the other side into our living room. I hope I’m not confusing you. To put it simply, we swapped the table and couch. Yes…yes we did. I know it sounds crazy, but trust me on this.
So, although you will not be able to see what the couch looks like in the kitchen until next year (that’s not that long), you will get a peek at how I decorated this gorgeous table for Christmas that we DIY refinished HERE last Summer.
To be totally honest with you, I have fantasized about moving this farmhouse table into the living room for years. I knew it would look beautiful in front of our pretty windows.
I was in my glory decorating it.

However, I have to admit, after moving the heavy furniture and trying to explain how this was going to work to the family, I got a little tired and didn’t want to set the table. So, here’s to the lady that told me I need to learn how to set tables.
I think I learned how not to worry about it.
The best part, is that eating at this table in the “living room” is so fun. The view is beautiful, and my voice echoes when I ask for the salt. Vaulted ceilings do that.
Did you happen to notice that “votive candle chandelier”? I used to have it hanging over our kitchen island a few years back before we had recessed lights. I finally found a place to put it, and I am so excited to share this with folks who really want a chandelier, but can’t have an electric one for one reason or another. This is a perfect solution. If you keep scrolling, you’ll see that we attached it to the vaulted ceiling with a very long chain.
You will also need this hook if you decide to hang one from your ceiling.
Oh, and some extra chain…
Don’t tell anyone, but here is a sneak peek of our Christmas tree right near our “Colorful Christmas Table”.
