Perfect Winter Projects

It is right about now I start to get a tad stir crazy. I look around my home and want to see something change. No major projects because that would take money but something small that will have impact. It is also cold outside and therefore whatever I do has to be inside and I can’t open any windows. So that led me to chalk paint. I know I have mentioned Whimsical Furnishings before but I will mention them again because they carry Aspire Chalk paint which have zero VOC’s. Which means I can paint picture frames or end tables without stinking out my family.

 
Please be sure to check out Whimsical Furnishings site as you can see all the paint colours they carry and finished pieces of furniture too! They have wonderful pieces at great prices.

Below are my two favourite paint colours at the moment. 

   
 Oh and if you want to learn before you start using this paint, check out the classes they offer!

Now start looking around your home for things to paint. It is a quick way to add some “wow”. 

Wallpaper – my thoughts 

  
I like wallpaper. I do not like to hang it and I really hate to take it down. So when wallpaper goes in my home, it better be something I love and intend to keep around for a while. I have a lovely grey damask covering the walls of my main floor powder room and a modern alphabet style in my home office. 

The rooms in my opinion that most suit wall paper are bedrooms, powder rooms and offices. I also prefer wallpaper as more of an accent wall. There are a lot of great wallpaper murals out there that do a great job of creating an accent wall. 

   
 
If I had to pick my favourite wall paper at the moment if would have to be the trees. I love the tree trunks but especially the birch trees. Here is one version of it below.
