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.
