With all of the snow gone, it is finally time to thinking about welcoming sprint into our homes. It can be done in simple ways, or it can involve fun DIY projects to improve an area of your home. Here are some ideas you can use to give your home a spring spruce up!

A New Coat for Your Walls

Are the walls in a particular room looking a little dreary or out-of-date? Try updating them with a new colour of paint! White, golden yellow, brown-themed neutrals, and soft and serene colours are some of the hot colours for people to use on their walls this year. Have a few walls to paint? Make a fun day of it by inviting family or friends over and make this chore into a fun get-together! The room could even look different by redoing the trim around your window and door frames to accomplish this task! It really is amazing what a bit of paint can do to give a room a new look.

Furniture Make Over!

Sometimes, a furniture fix-up is needed to breathe new life into a room this spring! A pop of colour could be added to a side table. Fix up a couch by reupholstering it or by simply adding spring coloured or themed pillows to it. Even giving a new tone to a nightstand by refinishing it with a different colour of varnish can make a world of difference to a space. Some of these fixes can be made into a weekend project to do outside now that the weather is improving.

Make Your Home Sparkle and Shine

Spring is a time for new beginnings. It is also a time to freshen up areas of your home that make have been neglected over the long winter months. You could sort all of the clutter that has accumulated in your back room that has been stored there during the winter. Remove fingerprints from the walls of your home. Sort and donate unwanted clothing and devices to de-clutter your home. Give a shine to your windows, indoors and out, by giving them a good cleaning. All of these tasks can make your home feel newer and allow for spring to come into your home.

Make Your Uutdoor Living Space Your Oasis

Love life outside around your home? You may want to take a look at what needs to be done around your outdoor living space to make this area more welcoming this spring! You can expand or even stain your deck for making a “new” entertaining or living space. Plan out your veggie garden or flower beds to add more colour to your yard. Even little touches like simple accent pieces can do wonders to how you enjoy your outdoor living area!

My aunt loves the sun! She is always outdoors, despite the weather or her boomer status. She is really excited to be bringing spring back into her backyard. There is one thing that used to hold her back from living life on her terms: urinary incontinence (or UI). Interesting fact – did you know that almost half experience bladder leaks before they can get to a restroom? My aunt is a woman who lets nothing slow her down. She is credits some of her strong spirit to using Always Discreet Moderate Underwear. It has soft Dual LeakGuards™ that help to prevent overactive bladder leaks where they happen most – at the legs. Its advance triple layer core aims to pull, trap and lock away urine wetness and order. It also has a soft cotton-like waistband so wearing them is really comfortable. Now my aunt does what she loves when she wants to do it, without worrying how far away from a restroom she may be.

  1. We want to repaint and add new garden decorations.

    We’re going to move our deck to a new location in the backyard, to take advantage of the garden the former owners used to have under it!

    I also plan to go through the shed and see what we don’t use and can donate.

    I’m going to go through our cleaning chemicals and see if some aren’t being used and should be brought to the hazardous waste site.

  3. Right now we’re redoing our backyard and trying to add a vegetable garden.

  4. Anne Taylor says:

    We have just moved and decluttered before coming here! A new coat of paint is always a good refresher!

    I’m hoping to persuade my son, an adult, to clear up his mess around my apartment – that alone would make me better tempered and make the whole place look so much better. When he’s done that, then I want to do some painting, buy some new cupboards and hang up some new pictures.

  6. Cheryl says:
