ONE table down....

3ish to go.  I have a full round dining table, a 5 foot table, a card table and at least 2 small accent tables yet to set things out on.   I did the Christmas corner first, and LOVE how it turned out:

Cute, huh?  It's hard to see in the photo - but I ran a cafe curtain rod from corner to corner of the shelf so that it is diagonal across the space - and hung the beaded ornaments from it.  Pretty ingenious if I do say so myself.   One of the hardest parts about getting the tables all ready is figuring out how and where to turn on the accent lights so that they are easy to get to each time.  I've been pulling, dragging and maneuvering tables all day!  The dining table has been clothed, stacked and covered, and the card table that held ALL of my inventory had to be switched to the other side of the room - which meant MOVING all the inventory.  But - so worth it.  The five foot table works much better in that space, and it has been clothed and stacked and lit as well. I also cleaned windows, ran the sweeper and ran to the basement for holiday decor at least 3 times.  I think that's enough for one day! 
So, girls - I'm pooped.  And since I'm in mid-decorate - I don't even know if I will be able to bead to relax - I don't think I can find the table!
More photos coming soon - I should have the 5 foot table done tomorrow.  Tracy comes to vintage-ize the entire living room on Tuesday, Sally comes to transform the nook next the fireplace and one wall of the family room into a classic and understated jewelry showroom, and Pam will add the glow of candlejar candlelight on Thursday morning before we kick it off at noon.
I am going to take a nap!
Peaceful beading - don't forget to comment for your chance at the Mix It Up prize.
