As you may know, making our house a home has been quite an ongoing project (as I’m learning is true for all homeowners).
The front room of our miniature home has been a particular challenge that we continued to put off for this entire year, simply because we didn’t know what to do. Should we buy a new table and chairs? Is a white sofa really feasible?
All these questions and more led us into an utter standstill. Oh yeah, I also had major life changes happening and that was a good distraction from the ugly room we walked through every day.
Now that school is over and I have a little more time on my hands, we were able to really make some major progress. It started with the dining room table and chair– a gift from my mother. It’s the table where we ate, did homework, argued about curfew, and cried about broken hearts. That table. It was perfectly beaten up, grimy, and outdated, worn down by years of abuse, use, and spaghetti sauce.
I couldn’t get rid of it.
