There was a man present who specialized in furnishings and decor, and when I explained my theory that chipped/distressed pieces could also be beautiful, he looked at me in disbelief. I went on to explain that those chips might represent memories.... perhaps the time where "father" had nicked the wood with his work boot.... or "junior" scuffed it, happily playing with his toy..... and how those "flaws" were really precious reminders of life itself. He had a look of awe on his face, as if I had made some huge revelation! LOL!
How could he possibly have known that Vintage Cottage Chic would be a decorating style? Which I happen to adore??!!
Happy Decorating Dreams to You!!
