The worn imperfect paint on our back porch door.
The crackled paint on the banister spindles.
As you can see, part of the top medallion on our banister is long gone. Still beautiful.
As you know, I am in love with the old sunporch. Here is a part I scraped and painted this summer. You can see the texture of remaining old paint under the new.
The trim and baseboards in this old house are chestnut. Irreplaceable. You can't get old slow-growth wood like this anymore.
The front porch columns have plenty of character too - 101 years worth!
Now, if I could only apply that philosophy to myself........
Have a beautiful Monday!
