Paint Your Apartment for Therapy!

I love painting my apartment! It’s relaxing and therapeutic and really makes the space feel like my home! I love to make my home feel more inviting and was eager to spruce it up!

(Tip: If you are not the most handy or just don’t have the time, The Lodge at Lakeshore Maintenance team will paint for you! Ask the office team for more information!)

There is so much inspiration to be found around Greensboro, NC especially the vintage shops downtown! In looking for the right color from the hand-made mug I found at Just Be! I went to the local Lowe’s that’s just 2 miles from The Lodge at Lakeshore and spoke to their paint rep who helped me mix the perfect color red for my apartment! It turned out amazing!

But did you know all of the psychological aspects of painting a room?

Red

What you expect: Passion, Warmth, Anger
What else it can inspire: Coziness. Red objects seem closer to you than if they were another color.

Orange

What you expect: Warmth, Fun, Courage
What else it can inspire: Hunger. Orange is as stimulating to your appetite as it is to your sense of adventure.

Blue

What you expect: Serenity, Intelligence, Trust
What else it can inspire: Cold. Literally, physical coldness. People who are cold prefer warm colors around them for that reason.

It’s July! Which means it’s time to get out of the apartment for some cookouts, fireworks and… tubing?

Up until a couple years ago I had no idea about this amazing summer activity. I italicized activity because it’s really one of the laziest outdoor adventures you’ll ever go on. But that’s why it’s sometimes the perfect thing to do on a hot summer day in the Piedmont Triad.
Today I want to show you how you can easily go tubing in a single afternoon with just a couple friends and a couple bucks.
The first, and laziest way of tubing, is to get out of Greensboro and head up to the Dan River Adventures in Madison (about 45 minutes away) and pay to rent a tube and get a ride. It’s simple, easy, and doesn’t cost a ton. Here’s the link to the website http://www.danriveradventures.com/.
The other way to go tubing is the way of the locals. The “Do It Yourself” way. This is for people who enjoy tubing and are probably going back. The great thing about tubing in Madison is that there are public entrances to the Dan river, and for the 4th of July weekend, they open up the dam a little to get higher water levels. So all you need to do is purchase a tube at Walmart and head out with a couple friends.
Here’s how we did it in a step by step process.
1-Get the tubes from Walmart. They are in the outdoor section near the hunting/fishing/sports corner. I personally bought two tubes. 1 for me. and 1 for my cooler 🙂 The tube for me was around $7 after tax and the special one for a cooler was about $13.
1 1/2- For extra ease and a little extra money, buy the air pump. It plugs into your car and will blow up the tubes a little faster.
2- While you’re at the store go ahead and grab some snacks and drinks.
3- Look up the public entrances for the Dan river in Madison. I’ll make it easy. go here- http://www.danriver.org/rockingham-county. Once you’re there, download the river guide. It’s very well done and has a nice easy map. The written directions are confusing… or maybe that’s just me. I like maps.
4- Take two cars and drop one off at the public access where you’ll be getting out. it’s only 2 1/2 miles away from the entrance to the river. go ahead and walk down to the river so you know what to look for when you’re getting off the tubes.
5- Head over to the Lindsey bridge access and blow up the tubes.
6- Hop in the water and enjoy a couple hours of relaxation.
7- Don’t miss your exit!
After you do it once you’ll be a pro. Then you can take friends and look cool for knowing this local spot and having your own gear. Admittedly, if you only do this once a summer… just go to the Dan River Adventures. But keep in mind, it’s free once you’ve got your gear!
I hope this helps make your summer better. Have a great weekend and maybe I’ll see you on the river!
