you are allowed to be a masterpiece and a work in progress

If you care anything for home décor and design, then perhaps you have an HGTV addiction like I.  Each time Joanna Gaines does her reveal, I am amazed at the finished product.  How someone can see so much creativity in a boxed-in space always boggles my mind.  Also, I have enough Canadian content, that I would gratefully and willingly welcome any Property Brother to my home.  To the Scott brothers, and those designers who can turn older into something fabulous and new, I am accessible and ready for change.

Each of these shows takes something old down to the foundation, the good bones, and turns it into a vision of beauty. Respecting your story, and creating new objects to be admired from age, makes your home a sanctuary and a place of loving comfort.

In creating the heart of the home, reclaimed wood is highly desired. Focal walls that highlight the original markings and scars of use, hand-forged iron, and objects of inspiration and affection trigger great appreciation and gratitude.

I am a Fixer Upper too. The scratches, dents, and dings are a part of me that I reveal to those with whom I want to create deep relationships.  Some of my decorative elements are unique, quirky, and very DIY.  Antiques have been given another opportunity to be loved and treasured.  That is what I want too; don’t tell me that I am too old to understand. Rather, it is my experience and resilience through all types of construction that secure my foundation.

Changing perspective, removing the clutter, and adding a fresh coat of color help me to be more inviting and a gathering place for others.  Planting the roots deeply to add appeal to my personal landscape, I can see how much more work I want to do on the façade and beneath.

But, at the end of the day, appreciating the abundance I have received and seeing it in a new light, will help me to live happily ever after.  Or, at least until my next redesign.
