Perfect is over rated. I've talked before about being brave, and that's how I want to live in our home.
I'm joining The Nester today in her It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful link party
That being said...I want to talk about some imperfections in my home, and things that I want to change.
Recently I've been thinking about our dining room. I'm ready for a change. I feel like it needs to be brighter and fresher. There's nothing wrong or imperfect about the color really, I just want a lightness that this room doesn't possess.
I think with the brown walls, brown wood floors,brown rug and brown chairs, its just too much.
Since we hang out in the living/dining room all day I like to think of them as one living space.
I've been trying to add in more yellow in the living room. So maybe painting the dining room yellow will be the perfect solution. It certainly will make the room seem bright and sunny, and I think it will be a nice transition from the living room.
And these no sew curtains (hot glued) I'm really proud of, but they don't really fit my style anymore.
I hate the idea of buying new curtains since we are trying to sell our house, but that's not really a reason to keep something I'm not in love with anymore. I think I might just take down the curtains and rods, fill up the holes and paint the walls something fresh.
Do you have any suggestions for paint colors besides yellow?
I wish that I could keep my home better organized while I was doing makeovers
Even though the process is not perfect, I enjoy the final product
I have never seen anyone put a yard stick on a new desk. I'm sure someone out there thinks its ridiculous.
But the truth is, I love it. I smile every time I see it, it just makes me happy. I stuck it on with mounting putty so its not permanent, I don't think you could get any more imperfect.
Every day I try to embrace the imperfection and live in the now. Let the dishes clutter the sink every once and awhile. "I'm busy living", I tell myself.
I still enjoy the beauty where I can find it, and make notes on things that I'd like to change
I feel like our house is such a dark grey it really needs lighter items where ever we can find them.
I plan to add white flowers this year, I wont put the stars back up, and I might paint the wicker furniture white, and I might just buy some of those. Or better yet, just buy a few more of these chairs because they are cheap and clean and white. My wicker is really falling apart.
