La peinture CIL® offre des conseils faciles et économiques

pour embellir les espaces de vie en plein air

CIL Outdoor Living Photo -- 2

CIL Outdoor Living Photo 2: Illuminez les meubles extérieurs usés avec des couleurs vives, comme le Noble Blue de CIL (50BB18 / 216) présenté sur les chaises Muskoka et Tarragon Leaf (70GY 49/201) sur le repose-pieds.

 CIL Outdoor Living Photo -- 1

Utilisez des alternatives de coloration. Si vous avez un pont en bois surélevé, où l’air est facilement ventilé, envisagez de lui donner un aspect terre cuite en choisissant une combinaison de teintes de peinture terreuses. “Rag” les peintures pour mélanger les couleurs ensemble, puis éclabousser au hasard la peinture noire sur la zone pour créer l’aspect des galets. Peindre un sol extérieur avec une couleur pâle – comme le ciel bleu ciel de la CIL, Billowing Clouds (10BB 65/094), le vert pâle Farm Life (90YY 72/225) ou le corail léger Bali Sand (90YR 72/159) – crée également une vie chaude région.

Improviser avec des meubles. Pourquoi investir dans des meubles de patio coûteux quand vous pouvez utiliser de la peinture d’extérieur durable – comme la peinture extérieure semi-brillante CIL Dimensions – pour donner un aspect neuf aux anciennes pièces? Avoir une table d’intérieur, vous pouvez faire sans? Transformez-le en une belle table de patio. Vous cherchez à faire un meilleur usage des vieilles chaises de cuisine dépareillées? Poncez et repeignez-les pour un usage extérieur.

Soyez économe. Vous seriez surpris par les trésors que vous pouvez trouver dans les magasins d’aubaines qui font des pièces idéales pour votre espace extérieur. Si vous cherchez un bar extérieur, achetez un meuble usé et peignez-le d’une couleur distincte. Rangez-le avec une barre en plastique et vous êtes prêt à vous amuser. Peignez de vieilles chaises Muskoka en bois avec des tons clairs et brillants ou des nuances pastel pour donner vie à votre espace.

“Le ciel est la limite quand il s’agit de décoration extérieure”, souligne Goldman, suggérant d’utiliser l’art extérieur, des miroirs et des accessoires colorés tels que des bougeoirs, des coussins résistants aux intempéries et des jardinières comme finition.

Image result for Sweet Valley High

Comme Cane et Abel de la Bible … comme Jessica et Ida the name of the new character de Sweet Valley High … les jumelles vivent une vie compétitive et réussissent. Un jumeau est responsable de la mort prématurée de sa mère et ce jumeau doit être au service de l’autre jumeau pour le reste de sa vie. Il devient possible d’être à deux endroits en même temps – pour celui qui n’a pas péché. – Titré: Mary et Jess – Je vais écrire ceci dès que possible – jeudi 16 août 2012 – en cours … destination pour compléter manuscrit auto-édité … Novembre 2012.

Deuxième idée … le monde est en guerre de trop. Toute personne de moins de 30 ans qui peut se battre et toute personne de plus de 30 ans qui peut se battre est en guerre. L’économie est mauvaise, les gens en ont assez de se battre pour trouver un emploi – alors ces groupes d’âge se battent pour éliminer ceux qu’ils considèrent comme une menace. J’ai fait cette histoire au lycée. Je ne l’ai plus, mon ancien professeur d’anglais, M. MacPherson, l’a et je ne sais même pas s’il vit encore ou s’il l’a encore, mais c’est dans ma mémoire. Je vais l’écrire à nouveau. – Titré: Âge de la majorité – écrivez-le en novembre 2012 – en cours … destination pour compléter le manuscrit auto-édité … Janvier 2013.

Troisième idée … un travail créatif de non-fiction pour le cours Making a Book au campus de l’Université de Toronto à Mississauga au sujet de mon expérience avec le travail qui peut être lié et donné comme cadeau aux participants de mon doctorat. recherche. Intitulé: Donna travaille dur pour l’argent – commencer à écrire en Décembre 2012 – en cours … destination pour compléter manuscrit auto-édité, manuscrit autoformé, conception de la couverture auto-créé et publié par Life Rattle Press … Avril 2013.

I don’t like cleaning because it’s not something where you use your head and when I don’t use my head, it wanders into things I’d rather forget. But I don’t like living in filth either. I’ve had enough dirt in my life as it is. So that’s why I’ve got my fingers down the bathtub drain and the smell of Vim burning the inside of my nose. I find the piece of hair and pull. It keeps coming and coming, a whole ponytail slimy with old shampoo.

By Nick Goodwin

I’m sitting in my house listening to music and lightning. I’m listening to old school hip hop. I really like the “old school” stuff. I can hear it raining a bit in between songs and the lightning is chiming in
whenever it feels like it.

Last night it was extremely hot in the house. It probably did not help that I boiled a pot of water. It was so hot that I got up from my bed in a sweaty haze to try and pry open my uncooperative window. In the heat of the moment I managed to accidentally rip down my makeshift curtain. The window then began giving me trouble. I woke up this morning to a scene of clothes thrown, furniture moved, and a surprising decrease in temperature! I made a huge mess trying to get my window to cooperate. I ended up saying forget it and sleeping through the heat.

I’m starting to develop some personal goals for the future. My nature is ambitious, however, I am really not a goals-oriented individual. I know what I want and I go for it; not always with a plan.

My mother always criticized me for behaving this way. I often find it easier to write the blueprint as you go rather than before you engage in an experience that will have unpredictable occurrences.

I suppose my theory is more relative to short-term planning. I’m starting to think a little more long-term in my potential goals. If I develop some personal long-term goals that will add to my motivation to be a successful freelance artist as well as provide me with some focus.
