Anyway, taking a photograph each day is really forcing me to appreciate the moments more. So thank you, fellow 365'ers for your encouragement and inspiration.
Thanks, too, to Kate for helping paint trim:
And here's a quick before of my bedroom. I had already piled all the new stuff on top of the bed to get ready to paint. I really loved this color for many years (French Toast - Porter Paint). However, I found some bedding I liked more on sale at Crate and Barrel last summer. It has been living in my closet all this time as I collected pillows and accessories to complement it. As part of my month of "determination", I was determined to finish this project - even if everything wasn't perfect.
