Aging Gracefully

When we first saw my dining room set a couple weeks ago, it looked like this.




Then, I showed you what it looked like after I gave it a fresh coat of creme colored paint.






Leaving the original wood top alone.





But then, I decided to rough it up a bit.




Because I like it when things look worn and weathered.





And who knows how long that would have taken.





The older I get, the less I care about perfection.



And the more I treasure everything that is not.
