Now that spring has been here for while hopefully, you have brought it inside your home. During the months of spring, we get more sunshine and the flowers and trees have new colorful blooms and foliage. We want to make sure we bring all that beauty into our homes.
Mother Nature has already put us in the spring mood and what better way to enjoy it than to bring some of those flowers and plants into our indoor living spaces. If you have not started growing the herbs outdoors you can start them on the kitchen counter from seed and then plant the seedlings in your garden or on your patio later.
Dust off some of the old plant containers that have been stored in the garage all winter long and give them a new coat of paint. You can keep these containers indoors for handy use or just move the containers outdoors. Another way to bring the new season inside is to redecorate the rooms you spend most of your time in with flowers. Once you have painted some of the older containers with greens, yellows, and purples you can bring in some flowers that match the containers. You do not have to re-paint an entire room to brighten it up; just give the baseboards or molding around doors a fresh coat of paint or stain. You can re-arrange some of the furniture or place new colorful pillows on the sofa.
Some of you probably checked out some estate sales or garage sales last year and may be found an old wicker chair that someone did not want anymore. Now would be a good time to bring it out and give it a new life with a new coat of paint and place a new bright colored cushion on it. But do not place it outside; bring it into your family room, a three-season porch, or even your bedroom to remind you of spring. Visiting flea markets can also bring you some new treasures to brighten up your home.
