Hope you’re coping well and staying safe? Like you, my family of four are trying our best to get on with our routines and adapt to our new norm. Since this new norm of ours involves spending almost 100% of our time at home with the rest of our family, maybe it’s time for some simple DIY home improvement projects to brighten up the space we live in.
Home improvement projects doesn’t have to cause a hole in your pocket. One inexpensive, effective and easy DIY project for the entire family is to give the wall in your living room or children’s study room a fresh coat of paint. You may order the paint and tools online and with some reorganization of exiting furniture items, you get a fresh new space within just a few days! Plus, that’s one way to keep your kids busy for a few days when HBL ends.
What do you need to do? To begin, consider the areas and walls you wish to upgrade, the type of paint and colors, go online to determine the paint you need, order and wait a couple of days to get started. Check out our online store www.forest3design.com for wall coating ideas or just click here, we’ll help. Besides changing colors, consider Wryte whiteboard paint and chalkboard paint for learning or creative activities. For colors, make sure you use products that are waterbased and are environmentally friendly like Murobond.
