Using Painted Furniture To Enhance Your Style

Walking around the attractive beach property I noticed the outside painted coastal furnishings within the front yard. There were four white painted chairs to sit on using a painted white round table for refreshments. The outside painted coastal furniture was gorgeous and stood out among the green manicured lawn and beautiful colored blossoming flowers.

Entering into the coastal home I noticed the different coastal painted furniture in the living room. There was a coastal painted coffee table placed in front of the couch. The coffee table was of a brown color with ornate designs. There were also small drawers in the coffee table to keep small items in for easy reach. The painted coastal coffee table made it easy to serve guests and to keep things informal, and there was a blue painted coastal cabinet with shelves for decorative items. Next to the blue painted coastal cabinet were table stands painted in the color of eggshell. With the different colors and different coastal furniture in the living room, everything functioned well bringing about comfort and organization.

Walking into the kitchen I noticed a large rectangular coastal painted table with the top part of the table painted a white color along with the legs being a light blue color. It was awesome how the furnishings and colors blended so nicely with each other, it was inviting and functional at the same time. The painted coastal kitchen chairs had been painted a mixture of blue and white to match the colors with the painted coastal kitchen table.

How to Preserve and Shelve Books Properly

Books are important tools for education. However, after being read, these are usually put away and mostly ignored. Thus, they should be well- kept and maintained in good condition to last for ages. Few people are familiar with tricks about shelving and preserving volumes to the point of making these priceless. If you consider yourself a bookworm, then you must have volumes of paperback to accompany you. And if you are to store them away, note that special care and supplies are needed.

Preserving Books

    Remove all dusts and smudges using a soft and clean cloth. If it has a hard glossy cover, damp the cloth a little and gently wipe. Make sure not to dampen any of the pages. If it has a stubborn price tag stuck on the cover, use a lighter fluid. Soak it for 20 seconds and gently peel off.

    Dusts easily accumulate even inside the boxes. Cover the volume with plastic bags and seal it using packaging tapes. This will prevent moisture out and keep it dry even when dumped in a moistened area. For paperbacks, using large envelopes will suffice.

    Put the books inside alkaline-buffered and acid- free boxes. You can lay them upright or flat whichever you prefer, just as long as they are fitted snugly inside. Store it in a cool area. If you have leather-bound items, keep them away from places with high humidity. It will dry out the cover which results in cracks and tears.

Tips for a Springtime Spruce Up

Many have the idea that re-decorating a room has to be a tedious, overly-complicated process, and do not know where to start. For the spring season, sprucing up that living room or bedroom is best in this season because you can get the most color inspiration from right outside your window. Nature's gifts tend to become more evident with flowers blooming, trees growing and the warm sun allowing us to partake in its radiance. Of this you can find a quasi endless supply of colors for use in home revitalization.

Changing your Furniture
Swap your dark furniture pieces for lighter, brighter pieces such as a spring-colored wicker replacement. When filled with garden-inspired pieces, rooms tend to come alive as they are filled with similar colors seen right out your front door. Given that flowers are the official representative of springtime, don't be afraid to invest in floral furniture pieces. This will add a new dynamic to that room, and create a focal point for guests. If you do not want to completely replace your dark furniture pieces yet still want to add bright colors to the room, slipcovers and fabric tableskirts are a great way to compensate. It's a good idea to visit your local furniture store, as they will have ideas readily available for both your space and budget.

Go Vintage & Visit Your Rug Dealer
When redecorating for the spring season, look at furniture pieces that you may have that although, are older simply need a bit of tender love and care. The greatest perk about vintage furniture is that you can change the appearance of these pieces for your own tastes and take a bit of risk with color. Resurrect a vintage piece with bright colors that coincide with the general theme of that specific room. You can use this specific piece of furniture as your focal point, or invest in a bright-colored rug from your local rug dealer. Throw rugs throughout the home can liven up a space that has generally neutral colors. Once again before you visit your rug dealer, observe the general colors of your home, take pictures, and bring them with you when you are ready to scope out beautiful accent rugs. This way you have a better understanding which rugs would go best with the rest of the furniture pieces of your home as opposed to guessing and coming home with little more than buyer's remorse.
