Sometimes you have you heart set on something you want for your home and for whatever reason it just doesn’t work out.  I really wanted an upholstered headboard for our room.  But, I didn’t want to make one because of my extreme aversion to anything that requires patience and I didn’t want to dish out the money for a well made one {beds are one of those things that my husband insists must be well made and I agree with him on that point and would add in sofas and rugs but that’s another post}.

So, we came up with a new plan.  We painted our bed.  And I think I love it more than an upholstered headboard and we already had the paint so it was free.  And I love free almost more than anything.

Being open to alternatives many times have resulted in a more creative solution that I end up liking better than the original plan.

Or as Dog says:

“I like it when a plan comes together that you didn’t plan.”

I like that too and I think many of us don’t allow the organic process of allowing a room to come together on its own terms without a fight.  Embrace those mistakes, closed doors and imperfections.  They’ll probably lead to a better outcome.

” A lot of people won’t change a plan that’s how they end up not winning.”

Changed plans are an opportunity, not a burden.
