Whether or not the thermometer agrees, it is (according to the calendar) Spring. I don’t know about you, but I have a bad case of Spring Cleaning Fever. Or perhaps, I’ll call it ‘Nesting’ Fever because while I am currently obsessed with sprucing up my space, I have yet to wash any windows.
I finally broke down bought the “perfect” paint color for our living room, collected some empty boxes to take unwanted clothes to the Goodwill, and have repurposed some old furniture with the help of thinking outside of the box (and a big jar of decoupage glue).
What is it about spring that makes us want to doll up our domiciles or fancy up our flats? Is it the threat of summer guests, the desire to breathe fresh, clean air, or just being tired of looking at the walls we’d been staring at all winter long? Whatever the reason, I’m motivated!
For some inspiration (if I haven’t given you enough), try my current favorite websites that give you great ideas and show you how to put them into action (http://theinspiredroom.net/ and www.hgtv.com and http://blog.hgtv.com/design/)
I’ll get busy this weekend with painting. What are you inspired to do? ~Carol
