I listened to a talk this weekend about making your spouse the most important person in your life, only second to God. It really touched my heart and made me question myself. Am I giving my best time and attention and energy to my husband? Probably not. Can I improve? Most certainly. Is it worth the effort? YES! I want to hold on to the love that we have. I want to make it stronger. I want to grow old with my true love and share every part of my life with him. I want to spend years creating our laugh lines together and when I look at my wrinkly self in the mirror, I want to smile and think of the memories we've shared and our future together.
I had the opportunity to go to ReStore the other day. It's such a cool place. They are a nonprofit organization that accepts donations of building materials for homes. They use their profits to help build homes for people. It's pretty amazing and a perfect place to shop if you're looking for doors.
I picked up this paneled door for only $20.
I was planning on using for an entryway coat rack, but after holding it up in the intended spot, I didn't love it there. It looked better in our front room. Not as functional, but I liked how it looked on the gray wall better than against our white hallway.
I put vinyl flowers and birds in the panels to dress it up.
I was a little worried that it would feel too busy for me because of the high bookshelves, but I really do like it. It's a fun focal point for the room.
