Gotta love

I know it's not proper English, but I am from the south ;-) I have always tried to be a positive person, but I have certainly let the trials of life get me down at times. Not so much as a New Year's resolution, but just as a life goal, I'm striving to be more positive and uplifting to myself and all those around me.

It was definitely more pricey to do this the way we did, but we agreed we'd rather have a nicer look, even if it is just an entryway closet. The wood alone may have cost as much as the original Pinterest project, but it's worth it.
