The Little Things

I feel like I've been working my tail off home improving.  A lot has been accomplished but I still get the "It has potential," remark more than I'd like.  I try not to take it too personally, but as a woman and a homemaker, the house feels like it's an extension of myself.  For all the huge projects we've been undertaking, my favorite by far have been the seemingly insignificant checks off the list.  Instead of a columned mirror, now we've got a nicely drywalled column waiting to be painted.
The 1970's have been removed as much as possible.
Instead of a dark, unfinished tunnel to our bedroom . . .
 . . . there's a homemade banister in it's place.
Even the tiny strips of trim that have been carefully primed, painted and replaced really finish off a project.
See the subtle difference?
It really is the little things.
