It’s a simple fact.
Some days Life is downright stressful. You look around and see a whole lot of things to worry about and not a lot of immediate answers and suddenly those little eyesores around the house seem even bigger.
And they bug you. Like that dark, scruffy ottoman with the one leg that was chewed on by your puppy. Suddenly it’s looking absolutely dreary and so brown.
But it’s amazing how the littlest things can change your mood. Sometimes all it takes is some leftover masking tape…
a can of primer left over from HERE…
and a can of spray paint.
And before you know it, you’re so jazzed by all this cheery looking white paint that you pull out the sewing machine you barely know how to use, because you suddenly remember a tutorial you always wanted to try. With burlap.
Because you can always depend on a sturdy piece of burlap to turn to for ideas…
because Mr. Burlap is so dependable under pressure. Even when you can’t sew a straight stitch for very long, Mr. Burlap understands. And he waits patiently for the next big idea called, The Cover-Up.
Hmm.. how about this solution? Mr. Burlap with Miss Chic-Black- Grosgrain Ribbon. Looks like it’s a match made in heaven.
All it really takes is a little old glue gun and a piece of white fabric hidden underneath… that no one needs to know about. After all, every couple has a few juicy secrets.
And before you know it, things are looking a lot brighter.
The sun is shining and you’re feeling so darn happy…
because you tackled something you hadn’t done before and it worked. Although it’s still not some expensive, perfect looking ottoman. But that’s not the point.
Now it has a sassy, new attitude.
And the best part?
You’ve got one less eyesore in your view and one more cute-little-thing to appreciate.
Honestly, sometimes it’s the simple, little things that make us happy.
Don’t you agree?
