Do You Need Some Inspiration Today? (I Know I Do)

Do you  need some inspiration today? (I know I do)Hello friends.If you've been following me on my (newly reactivated) Instagram, you've already got a peek of the planks I put up in my living room. I finished painting and caulking them this weekend but all my cans of white paint got me craving even more creamy light-filled rooms. Rooms from houses that are wonderfully finished---unlike mine.
Have you ever felt this way?

If you're living in your own version of a fixer upper maybe you can relate.You know that occasional tired lens that you see your house through, usually triggered when someone new walks into your home. All of a sudden those parts of your house--like your old staircase that desperately needs to be re-done--stand out like a gigantic sore thumb and for one lazy second you think, "god-I-wish-this-house-was-done."  The truth is, most of the time I'm driven by moments of pure exuberance, like right after I unplugged my nail gun and looked around my newly planked room and felt proud that I did it by myself. But every once in a while I get seriously impatient. I want to live in a house that feels completely like ME right now. A home that reflects my own personal, quirky style already, because it's hard to live in rooms that look like they belong to someone else.Life is so interesting isn't it?It seems like I'm always being reminded that attaching myself to "the outcome" is not the way.Do you  need some inspiration today? (I know I do)Dear universe, I get it. I do understand that the journey is everything. I do realize it's the process of getting there that gives our life meaning.(But psss... can we please fast forward through some of this fixer upper stuff?)Ok. All done with the wishful thinking.Today I'm sharing some pictures from a few of my favorite tumblrs because there's something about each one that inspires me. And sometimes it's the littlest things that catch my eye.Do you  need some inspiration today? (I know I do)a unique, casual light fixture..Do you  need some inspiration today?
