|Trivets on white wall.|
I was thinking my white walls were perfect for displaying the black trivets. Then I saw this picture and decided my walls needed a little color. After a few weeks of searching for the perfect color, I finally settled on a Home Depot paint called "Dapper Tan" and spent a couple of days painting the back hallway. I watched the walls get darker as I painted, but when I took a picture of my painting project and looked at it ...

... and looked, and looked... I couldn't see much difference. I started to wonder what all the fuss was about.

I took another picture. It still looks almost the same as it did before the paint. I guess I should stop taking pictures and get on with life.
For years I wanted my house to be perfect - just like a page from a magazine. Somewhere along the way I discovered 'perfect' changes every month, and takes up way to much of my time. I think now I'm just wanting comfortable, cute and quirky. Pleasant.
Do you ever find yourself working for perfect when what you really want is pleasant?
