How to Effortlessly Spruce Up Your Home

Being a homeowner means a lot of responsibility. It’s easy to move into a place, unpack, relax, and never think about changing anything because it’s a lot of effort and can be expensive. However, keeping on top of your home is a must, otherwise, your house will become cluttered, stressful, and can cause structural problems in the future. If you have everything sprawled all over the place, how can you see any underlying issues which need to be addressed?
Reclaim your home and create a happier environment; here’s how to effortlessly spruce up your house for a more relaxing atmosphere.
Your whole house will benefit from a deep clean. Although it’s a lot of effort, once you’ve done the first intense cleanup, you can then implement them on a bi-monthly basis or even once a month if you keep on top of the clutter and the rubbish. Dust and hoover once a week, and be mindful of what you buy, so there’s no need to have an excessive number of deep cleans. Your place will look better immediately after a long cleaning session.
Fresh Paint
Last year, bold colors may have been in fashion; however, trends have changed and now neutral tones with small bursts of color are all the rage. Giving your house a fresh coat of paint can completely transform your home – a room’s mood and ambiance can drastically change, and what’s even better is that next year, you can repeat the process and change the colors within your home once again. It’s guaranteed your home will look brand new after a fresh coat of paint.
Install Outdoor Lighting
Sometimes we forget about our gardens, however, outdoor spaces can be incredibly beneficial to your home. Not only can a well-constructed and designed garden improve your home’s curb appeal, but it can also provide an outdoor space for you and your family to relax and unwind in.
You also need to consider the safety of your home. Outdoor LED Wall Pack Lighting from e-conolight, are durable, dependable and offer superb illumination. These lights will increase your home’s security, as well as offer lighting for outdoor parties and events.
Find Second-Hand Furniture
Head to your local thrift store or consignment shop and pick out furniture that’s comfortable. Second-hand can be incredibly cheap, and vintage items are very in fashion right now. Therefore, you no longer have to break the bank when updating your home furnishings; instead, buy from charity shops and implement your own DIY skills. Paint any wooden furniture you wish to change the color of, or add different surfaces to tables.
The best thing about adapting old furniture is that you get the chance to showcase your personality. There’s also less pressure about accidentally ruining the furniture you’ve just bought, as it wasn’t ridiculously expensive in the first place.
Have a home you’re proud to call your own. If it’s cluttered, then not only will it be stressful for you, but it will also be stressful to family and friends who visit. Create a calming, beautiful and personalized environment, and make sure to keep on top of the cleaning and organization.

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
