BEFORE & AFTER: YOU’RE PERFECT JUST THE WAY YOU ARE
I like the idea that a object and a person can be considered perfect “as-is.” We are talking no change, just look at the piece recognize its value. See a scratch or a paint chip as character not an imperfection. I found this piece at a dealer’s warehouse in Fairfield. Case-goods for the record are not high in commodity. It makes them cheap. Buy Now 🙂 I love the toile-style detail.
I didn’t change anything about this piece. Its image, “as-is” was published in November’s Lonny Magazine. I just found its perfect home. Saddled between two windows and holding vintage blooming 70s lamps. Tiger Lily’s is a bloom after all. I will plug now, http://www.tigerlilysgreenwich.com. A rock-solid sketch of a lady, skull and some booze round out the cabintry. I found the perfect marriage of style with the detail on the cabinets and the toile drapes.
Marriages are love. May we all have that in this lifetime.
Confucius said, “It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.” Confucius said that when he was alive somewhere in the period between 551 BC – 479 BC. This before and after is long past that time, but it makes sense in modern day.
Love what is in front of you and appreciate what it gives. It opens life up to a series of before & afters that you can live with.
