I like change. It keeps me from feeling stagnant. It keeps my mind creative. It makes life feel fresh.
Since I have gotten sick, we haven't rearranged our furniture nearly as often, because I simply did not have the energy to do anything that was not necessary. Three weeks into the new treatments, I am beginning to feel like my old self again. I actually "want" to do things to get our life in order again. That feels good.
Last night, Bryan and I rearranged the living room again, and I created a thrifty chic display on the wall for photos that were taken this past December in one of our favorite spots. I like it.
|Before: Our blank wall that has driven me crazy for about a year now.|
|After: We flipped our sectional around to open up the living and dining area more. I really like the simplicity of hanging the photos with metal clips on a sheer ribbon. We used eye hooks to mount the ribbon and keep it tight.|
|After: Here's our display at a different angle. I printed the photos online at Artsy Couture and chose a metallic finish. Let me tell you... the print quality is unparalleled.|
Walking into a room with beautiful photography makes me happy. This little project didn't cost us a dime.
It feels good to see our home transform again into a beautiful, restful retreat from the world.
