A few years ago, I ran across pictures of this Christmas tree...

I thought it was genius, pinned it and moved on, leaving the picture among nine million other pins that I am instantly obsessed with and then forget about.
As a few years passed I, like most of you out in blogger world, started seeing more and more disco balls pop up in home decor. I loved the idea but it became like lip print art and chevron rugs, meaning that "everybody" was doing it and well, I usually skip over those trends even if they are great.
And then, in early September, we threw this party and twenty or so times while party planning I thought to myself how fun it would be to have a working disco ball up in our garage during the festivities. So I started scouring the internet only to find that I wasn’t the only one looking. Folks on eBay and Craigslist had wised up to this trend and the prices were inflated. Well, y'all know me. I am a deal seeker. I NEVER pay full price for anything. It just isn't in my DNA. .
I held off thinking that I for sure would run across one at a junk shop or flea market. And I did...like a 10'' one for $60 at the Junk Gypsy store and a $400 one at another flea market. B**ch, please. I know, I know, it was from the 70's and legit but oh hell no.
I had given up on my idea and was waiting for the trend to completely pass before buying one.....and then I saw this picture....
Must have. Must jump on trend. Must conform. Must have before Christmas. They can add so much holiday festivity to a room with almost zero effort.
One of my favorite home decor bloggers discussed her recent purchase, here, and after reading that, I decided to really search hard and take the plunge. I found a big one on eBay for less than $40! And...it actually works and came with the kit and everything.
Look at these inspiration photos...
