Christmas Houses turned Girly Night Lights
Today’s post is a a simple trash-to-treasure thrift upcycle. When I spotted these old Party Lite ceramic houses at the thrift store, I saw potential and snapped them up. But now, I’m second guessing my plan and need your crafty/decor advice!
You see, my daughter has been requesting we leave lights on at night. I wanted to find a night light that was cute and dim enough for night light status, yet bright enough that she would feel secure at night. I decided that these charming houses, along with a string of white Christmas lights, would be perfect for our needs.
I love the look of these Ceramic House Night Lights, but the colors were just a bit country for me. My vision was to spray paint them white, add Christmas lights and call it a a day.
And I totally could leave them this way. I love the way they look in her bedroom. More importantly, so does she.
Yes…that may be a Christmas decoration in the background. I’ve been decorating her room early this year. More on that later + don’t judge.
Here’s how they look at night. So pretty.
But I’m wondering…should I add a little something extra to these houses? Maybe white glitter on the rooftops?
Or should I make them more whimsical, painting them in different solid colors – like a blush pink, muted aqua, and mist blue?
Or is the clean, minimalist look the way to go?
What do you think I should do with our Ceramic House Night Lights? Let me know in the comments below.

I love the sweet subtle colors for her room.
Thanks, Kelly! I already have the perfect paint colors on hand. Just haven’t been able to bring myself to paint them yet!
I love the houses and because I am a glitter gal I would love the roofs or chimney to have a sparkle of the clear glitter. They are adorable and quite inspiring to see something beyond its original worth. ( I think I feel a blog post coming on)
Thank you Sheila! I do love that idea!
Oh, those are SO cute!! I’ll be adding these to my thrifting list!! I think glitter would be sweet but they are cute as they are too!
Darling idea with the tiny houses! Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is outstanding! My thoughts are that you should leave them just as they are. You can always change the colors and add-ons per occasion if you and she desires! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks for the feedback! I have left them alone thus far, I just can’t bring myself to make a possible mistake!
