This year, I’ve been doing an “Every Day Ugly” post on the second Wednesday of every month. Oops! This month, I’m a couple weeks off. What is “Every Day Ugly?” I look around at all the things I use the most, to make sure those are my “best” things. This series was inspired by my friend, Amy, who noticed that some of the ickiest things she owned were the things she used the most. She wanted to change that to make sure that her every day life was filled with beautiful, functional things. This inspired me to take a look around and make sure that I wasn’t saving “the best” for days that rarely come.
This month’s update comes from my friend, Amy, who for under $100 replaced these 20-year-old blinds…
…with this new look. In her words, “So much nicer to look at and out of.”
Thank you, Amy for sharing this wonderful inspiration.
I would love to have you join in. If you have some plain thing that you make beautiful, send me a picture or pictures and tell me about it at firstname.lastname@example.org.
