Taking the Old and Refreshing (One-Year Challenge*)
It’s amazing what a little paint can do!
This house hadn’t really changed in over 40 years; same curtains, ugly brick decor, yellow accent wall, carpets, and furniture arrangement. Being a creative type of person, I always rearrange, change, and improve the environment around me. Just ask my husband how many times the furniture has been moved or new pieces of art decor has changed walls. I guess I haven’t changed since I’ve been on a journey to improve this old house and make it fresh. Paint does wonders and a little bit of deconstruction.
There was pink mortar between the bricks. It didn’t show up as well in the picture below.
A little bit of effort and vision can go a long way to make things like new. What project will you take on? Be bold, look around to see things as they could be, with a bit of imagination and labor – the possibilities are endless.
