This is the desk out in our back hallway. I love the distressed wood finish and the corkboard bulletin board. Distressed finishes are the best when you have young children! But there is also just something so comfortable about them too.
I’m still looking for the most perfect little something to put across the top of the desk. Any ideas? I’m also hoping that we can be done with all the patching so the painting can begin again. It drives me crazy, like nails on a chalkboard.
Not very many people can say that they custom built their own “Fixer Upper” yet that is exactly where my husband and I find ourselves. It is frustrating, stressful and downright unfair—but we are trying to focus on the blessing behind the aggravation.
It is also a wonderful opportunity to remember that this isn’t our eternal home and we won’t ever experience perfection until we finally enter it.
Are you struggling with things in your home that aren’t “perfect” that don’t fit your “ideal” that cause you stress and anger? What blessing could you focus on instead?
And here you thought this was just a post about decorating.
