Home Change Up

  Totally not the norm, but for the past week that I've been in Virginia Beach, I have been recruited to help redecorate my grandparents' house. The project? The mid-decade paint job. Yes, I know five years is a little long, but the average person probably doesn't redecorate that often anyways. However, I have been to every Home-Depot and Loews in the area, and have learned a lot. So, what's the point of this article?

   Stepping up in the game of life!

  The most important thing to do in a home or apartment is make it brighter and bigger. Just because you have large furniture or lights in the area doesn't mean the space is just right. In my grandmother's house, the master bedroom has dark, cherry-wood furniture, light beige colored walls, and white trim, however, she and I both know the room isn't lit enough for our liking. The key to ensuring a home you can be proud of is going to the home improvement store, walking to the paint section, and snag color swatches. Crazy, yes, but it will save you money in the long run.

  Currently, the goal I have set for the next week is to finalize the paint colors for the bedroom, bathrooms, and living spaces. When I make a decision, I'll let everyone know! If you're in the mood for some redecoration, get to the stores during the week (it's less crowded), grab an associate, and go to town. It'll be the best 30-60min you've ever spent in the paint section!
