JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 194 :: a beauty project

19 Jul

I’ve been thinking a lot about the alchemy of beauty lately.

The ability to turn form into flourish. The transformation and transition of unsightly to beautiful. From shabby to chic.

Mostly because of this little project that Justin has been working on. What was once four ugly chairs and an old forgotten table, are now beautifully restored. 

To start, they had good bones. But the power of love and care, a little paint and new fabric and the compression of time has turned them into show pieces again. He smoothed out the edges.

Like magic. Alchemy really.

And that brings me bliss along with a powerful reminder. The ability to refresh, restart, and redo is always there. You just have to look below the surface. Beauty can be more than skin deep.

More tomorrow.
