You know what is ridiculous? The fact that I was prompted to start this blog because we bought a new house and I wanted to share its makeover process with all of you and now I find out that I have home stage fright. I am sent into terrors every time I try to share one of the rooms in my home like I did here. That was hard for me to do. There are a few reasons for this...
1. My home is ever changing so I never feel like it is "ready" to share.
2. I take my space personally. My home is a complete reflection of me and it is hard for me to just put it out there under scrutiny.
3. I am a horrible photographer and could never do any space justice.
4. No room is finished. I believe that your home is never finished and should change and grow with you, but that is not what I am talking about. I actually mean no room is actually finished even enough for me to be satisfied for a few years or even months. I hate the idea of sharing an image of an unfinished space. Many of the projects I have in my mind include sanding and painting and for that I need warmer weather.
All of these reasons are a part of why I find it hard to share photos.
Just an example of what I mean when I say my home is ever changing...here is my dining room in only 5 months....
What's nuts is that don't even have a picture of what it looks like now. I have a "new" piece of furniture where the bar cart was and 6 "new" dining rooms chairs that need a makeover. But I have left the rugs the way you see them in the final picture. I hope to find a new chandie one of these days. I just painted the one that came with the house for now. I may be getting a "new" table soon too. I say "new" because nothing in my house other than the couch and mattresses are new. I like the old stuff with a story.
Do any of you have trouble sharing pictures of your home?
Freaking out over here,
