I wish I had some amazing before and after shots to show you but no, these changes are very small but are HUGE. They are big because, I did them! The Mr. is away being a Dr. during the day and I decided instead of spending my days like a "Real Housewife" I would be an independent Housewife and get things done!
Things like this:
|Switched out all the light switches and outlets that were brass!|
|Replaced the broken guest bathroom shower head.|
|Fixed the wobbly toliet paper holder-this one is HUGE. This thing drove me and guests crazy.|
|Finally fixed the broken towel holder in the master bathroom.|
|Hung a few crafty items I created above our headboard.|
|Cleaned and organized the master bedroom office area. Hey Mr. you better keep YOUR office neat!|
|Took down all the Christmas decor (including the tree by myself ) AND made this nifty little wreath thanks to Pintrest|
And this happened:
Ugly. Hole. Crack. Blemish. Boom. Ugh. Explicative. Sad Face.
But then this little nugget of a quote came in my inbox in the email newsletter from Consignment Furniture Emporium in Winston-Salem.
I can't find the potential yet in the hole in the wall. I am sure the Mr. will eventually hang the shelves for me and I can always strategically place a vase or picture over the hole but I should look at potential around me this year. I can be more positive in 2012-more positive in my marriage, in myself, in my relationships and in my job. Maybe even with this little blog. Maybe I shouldn't beat myself up when I can't think of the perfect invitation & matching post.
Hey, maybe I could redesign that quote into a redesigned little piece of typography.
So here's to POTENTIAL and REDESIGNED RENOVATIONS!
