Senior Care in Waxhaw, NC: Refreshing Bedroom Furniture

The spring and summer months are the perfect time for you to spruce up your aging loved one’s home. While the winter months tend to encourage people to stay inside and not do very much, when the weather begins to get warmer, your senior care plan should begin to involve more activities and interaction. Refreshing your loved one’s bedroom furniture gives a new pop of energy and freshness into the home, which make a tremendous difference in how your loved one feels about the space.

It is not have to be a difficult or expensive undertaking to refresh your loved one’s bedroom furniture. There are many ways you can make impactful changes with only a few hours of effort. One particularly effective project is to turn the dark furniture into and area furniture ideal for a garden themed bedroom.

Senior Care in Waxhaw, NCThe supplies that you will need for this project include:

  • Sandpaper
  • White paint
  • Green paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Ivy stencils
  • High gloss sealant

First, prepare a piece of bedroom furniture such as the dresser by removing any current sealant using the sandpaper. Once you have created a smooth, clean surface, paint the entire piece with the white paint. Use several coats so that you cannot see the wood beneath the white. Allow the white paint to dry fully before moving on. Using a pencil, sketch out a basic line where you would like the ivy vine to wind along the furniture. This should not be a perfect line, but rather a natural-looking curve. When you are happy with this line you can use the stencil and green paint to create your ivy vine. For a more natural look, use several shades of green for depth and variation. The final effect should look like you have draped a vine across the white furniture. Once the piece has dried, cover the entire dresser with the high gloss sealant for a bright finish.

Taking a piece of dark wood furniture and painting it white with the soft detail of an ivy vine adds femininity, light and airiness to a room. For added detail, you can continue the ivy detail across the walls and even down the outside of the door from the top so when closed the door looks as though it is leading into an appealing secret garden. Complement this look with white bedding and you have transformed your loved one’s living space.
