Week 2: Clear Clutter & Identify Intentions // Day 9: Work With What You Have
Sometimes you really just gotta work with what you have. I liked this space so much better without the clutter, but one other thing I really disliked was the crappy carpet.
I had picked at the sides for a while and knew it would come off easily. However, I had wanted to wait until we could afford to replace it before I tore it out.
I decided to just get rid of it though…We’ll have to replace the sub-floor anyway, because it’s degenerated in places, so I’ll just paint and seal it for now. Ideal it is not, but I
know hope I’ll like it better for now than looking at the bad carpet.
I moved the mat so we could use it as a welcoming mat.
Halo came to check it out…
and declared it good enough to sleep on.
If you find that you are stopping yourself from making a space pretty because you can’t do what you want to do, try asking yourself if there’s a way to make it work for now. You might be surprised at the possibilities you begin to see!
PS. If you’re in Canada like me: Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you were able to enjoy a turkey and family time!
As for us, we went to church, visited a Thanksgiving Festival and had chicken (anything poultry-like counts as far as I’m concerned!) with family. We also had the most perfect October weather and really couldn’t have asked for more!
