I picked out my first bed frame when I first moved out of college. It was a black iron frame with a scrolled headboard and foot board. I still have it today, six years later and it's been in as many moves. The bed frame has been very versatile with all the different kinds of decor that I've gone through. However, I still remember when I was picking the frame out that I almost went in a completely different direction. There was this one bed in the showroom that had a white frame with a wicker headboard, and I lurved it. Somehow, my mother managed to talk me out of it and convince me that I would have tired of it. Maybe she would have been right, but maybe not. Since then, I have had a long-standing personal lust for more wicker in my life ever since. So, when I stumbled across a website called The Family Love Tree, that sells mostly wicker furniture, I was so pumped to share some of their pieces with you!
Just because it's summer doesn't mean you can't have an inviting glow about your house. With all these things I've rounded up you can have the glow without the added heat, because trust me, in Texas, we don't need any extra heat. Adding a candle or lantern to a room just adds another layer of comfort and warmth, or bring votives and lanterns outside for a beautiful evening glow on your patio. By this time of the year, the fireplace industry has hit a slump due to lack of demand for heating devices, but here's the good news they start really dropping prices when summer approaches. It's kind of like buying bathing suits in the winter, or Christmas lights in the spring; you always find the best deals when things are in their off-season. Anyways I digress, instead of trying to add a glow with real wood and flame, you can add a visual glow with an electric fireplace and leave the actual heat setting off.
Summer is rapidly approaching and I'm eager to get my patio set up and functioning. All I brought with me in the move was a green chair that I redid last summer and it was pretty sad sitting out on the patio all by itself this spring.
Without a doubt, choosing colors for furniture can be a particularly daunting task for many people. As the colors that you choose will most likely be in your home for a considerably long time, it is sometimes important to keep this point in mind during the buying process. Further, it is important to remember that the color of furniture often sets the tone for the rest of the room.
Literally one of the easiest remakes you can do is spray paint. You can spray paint just about any hard piece of wood, plastic, glass, even some metals. And brightening up your patio is as easy as putting a fresh coat of paint on something, and hey if you don't like you can always paint it back. This took all of two coats and about 5 hours to dry.
