Ever feel kinda overwhelmed?
We bought this house
and right away I want it to look like Versailles.
Everything's perfect in the blogosphere and on pinterest.
I want to post pretty pictures of my own interior.
I'm wondering which eyesore to tackle first.
The ceiling fan over the dining room table, circa 1983?
The basement ceiling we started ripping out from all the mice?
The flourescent lights in the kitchen?
The piles of moving boxes that are
Then there's the budget, which is zero.
I'm left wondering Where do I even start?
So this year,
I will start with just ONE small project at a time.
And when that gets too overwhelming, which it will...........
I'll remember more important things. I'll laugh and eat cookies and knit and snuggle my kiddos and dance around. And count my many blessings. And after awhile things will start looking better.
They always do.
I am so grateful for HOPE.
In light of which, I have decided on project #1.
A certain (above) ceiling fan in the dining room must go.
Making way for one vintage chandelier rediscovered in the move.
|Loved the pretty gold, but it was too much for my fam|
|One can of spray rustoleum in oil-rubbed bronze|
|Adding the vintage crystals back on :)|
So I guess my new year begins with a pretty chandelier, and a healthy dose of hope :)
