Sometimes I need to see how far we’ve come.

It’s easy to see the flaws, the projects that are unfinished, the problems this house still has. But when I start to focus on that too much I’m going to make myself look at the “before” pictures. When we hadn’t even purchased the place. When it was still dirty and standing unoccupied.

The difference is quite striking.

January 2013: paint, seating, storage, and a place for a dining room table.

February 2013: progress! I can see what still needs to be done, but instead I’m going to marvel at the transformation.

(Those botanical prints and the frames were $12 from Ikea, by the way.  They THRILL me!!)

Here is a peak at the fabric palate.  Does it look vibrant and fun? I sure hope so!
