Splashes of Color

Winter is gone!  Okay, sometimes it doesn't feel like spring. Yet. But cabin fever is over. It's time to brighten up our living spaces.

If you are feeling crafty, you can surf the craft stores for bright fabrics. These are perfect for making your own curtains and pillows. Don’t have the time, or inclination? Discount and box stores are fun to shop. If you just need small pops of color, it’s not too hard to find something on the cheap.

Throws, pillows, and curtains are great, easy ways to add color any space. Looking for a twist? Try putting your pictures in brightly colored frames. Candle holders are an inexpensive way to add a touch of color to any room. Painting wooden dressers and chairs is a creative way to make a statement.

Looking to make a bigger splash? Paint a room in a bright spring-like color.

And don’t forget to take before and after photos. That way you can keep track of what you like and don’t like. Plus it’s easier to show off your savvy decorating skills to friends and family!

Don’t forget to check in at the library for books and magazines to help get you started.
