Moving Forward…The Struggle is Real!
FYI: Meal planning for healthy, whole foods meals can be intimidating. Wheat free? Whole foods? No sugar? Almond flour? Vegetarian? Vegan? Paleo? And some things that I have no idea what they even are. So many choices! And so much conflicting information about what is BEST for us. The only thing that I KNOW for sure is that real, whole foods beat out processed foods every time. Oh, and organic, gluten-free, whatever…junk food is still junk food. All that so say that I’m still slogging through my cookbooks and working on meal plans.
I do hope to start work on my entry hall today. I was going to start with painting the front porch, but the weather isn’t cooperating. So inside we go. I’m planning to paint the hall a lighter color and finally put to use some of the things I’ve been collecting at yard sales and thrift stores. I might also print and frame some of my own nature photos to hang on the walls.
Here are a few pics of my entry hall right now. I like the wall with the ladder. This vignette may or may not stay in that spot. Those were all yard sale finds. I have a shelf with hooks that I picked up for $2 at a yard sale that I plan to put in place of the mirror over the chest or where the ladder is. I’m planning to put a cushion and feet on the chest and repaint it. It belonged to my in-laws. Choosing the paint color is first, though. This is where the real struggle begins. Do you have any idea how many varying shades of white and/or cream there are?? And the names…that’s a job I’d like to have. Naming paint colors.
Hopefully, this project will only take a couple of days. Maybe one once the paint color is chosen. Someone pick it for me! Please.
I’m off to look at paint colors. My eyes are already blurring!
