Redecorate

As the seasons change I find myself in need of different scenery, so it is time to redecorate. This winter I had lots of blue on the bed, black and grey towels, but now its about that time for flowers and not snow. Okay, okay, so maybe I’m rushing spring a bit! But I’m tired of the chilly weather, I want ballet flats and spring air already!

With the lighter feel in the air, I’ll crave lighter brighter colors, and thinner fabrics. I have already cut my hair, now I just need to dye it, chances are I’ll simply pull out the strawberry blonde highlights I already have, make them pop. I’ll add more color into my wardrobe, more skirts and some capris for nice days.

As for my living space, I have been busy picking out paint in my spare time, not that I have had much. But I have chosen to use a teal and chartreuse. Behr’s Mermaid Treasure and Hidden Meadow are good contenders. I’ll paint the stairs and get rid of the white risers and dark wood treads that I have looked since I moved in.

Speaking of dark wood, I know light will be in, but I really like Lamton’s Princeton Black laminate. It would look great in my bedroom, easy to clean, and only around 50 cents. The best part, for me, is that I can do it myself. As a slight control freak, I enjoying doing things myself, that way I know whatever it is, will get done the way I want.

A good example of getting what I want and how I want would be the stair handrail. I know I want white, but if I were to send my boyfriend into the store he would grab any white, and I would be angry he didn’t get the whitest white they have, because I want white and not almost white. I am fond Glidden’s Dove White, so chances are, that’s the one I’ll grab. Not Arctic White or Antique White, but Dove White.

Once I have all the painting done, hopefully in the next couple of weeks, I start picking out other tidbits to swap out or redo. Maybe paint the unused computer desk, update it. Or, get new blinds, possibly in tan instead of the brown that’s currently hanging.

I find when I get into spring cleaning mode, that’s the best time to swap out items. Might as well sweep up paint chips while in the mood!
