So how can you win? Stick around and I tell you about that in a few! First, let’s really get down and talk about what Spring into the Dream means to me!

When I first saw this tag line I immediately thought about the season Spring. Spring cleaning, refreshing and pressing the reset button!  But I also thought about springing/jumping into dreaming up plans for your home! I’ve always been a dreamer. I think anyone who has an ounce of creativity in them is too! I remember when I moved into my first house, I would print out the floor plans and draw the aerial view of all the furniture that would go into each room. Before amazing sights like Pinterest, I would save all my house plans in a binder and dream about how I was going to change all my white walls into these gorgeous spaces. I was always coming up with a plans, even if I didn’t have the money or sometimes even the skill, I never let that stop me from dreaming and it shouldn’t stop you either! So here are some simple steps to help YOU Spring into the Dream this year.


Get your Dreams Organized

To get all your ideas organized you’ll need to hop on board the most wonderful virtual pin board ever, Pinterest. If you need and invite, I would love to get one to you, so email me at destiny{at}aplaceforusblog{dot}com. If you already have an account then you know how wonderful it is. You can create boards/categories about anything from sofas to zebra print! Install a PIN button on to your toolbar and pin any image from any site and PIN it onto a relevant board!  Follow your favorite boards like this one I’ve created for Spring into the Dream, or your favorite company’s like Homes.com and repin some of their pins too! 




Dream Big

Once you’ve got the hang of pinning go and start dreaming of each room you would love to transform!

Turn Small Projects into Big Dreams

Get your dream rooms going by starting off with small easy to do projects like making pillows for your sofa, painting a dresser, or dressing up your stair rails with glossy black paint!

Little by little you will see each room start to transform! But you have to get GOING first! I know how hard it can be to take that first DIY step. But once you do, the results you see will be SO worth it!


Dreams to Reality

Don’t just let your dreams sit on the internet or on pieces of paper! Make your DREAMS a reality!

Dream big! So true! #springintothedream

Dream come True

The joy of making your house a home or
“A Place for Us”  is something that is only felt after a little bit of hard work, ambition and lots of dreaming! Just the other day, my hubby said “Thank you babe”

ME: “For what?”

HIM: “For all of this. You’ve made our house a home and I never really understand what your doing but I can totally SEE it now, it’s crazy how much everything has changed.”

Yeah, I totally love that guy:0)

Yes, your dreams are important. They may not look like anything right now, but that’s the beauty of a dream. It takes time!
