  • Actually redecorate, not just add seasonal touches? Oh, that's usually every 5-10 years - so not too often!

  • I usually only decorate around the holidays

  • I'm lucky if I get my house decorated ever! I'm so wish washy. Do I like this? Do I like that? How long am I going to like it for?

  • Redecorate with seasonal things, I do that with some of the same things I have had for YEARS. I would love to get some new things a lot more often, but I have had about all the same colors and themes for 5 or 6 years now! But we move a lot, so putting it in a new home every so often keeps me from getting annoyed with it I can make a totally different look with different things each new place we live.

  • We've lived here 8 years and I've yet to decorate, period. We've put new carpet in out of necessity - 6 years ago, we got new furniture 6 months ago also out of necessity, and we got a new entertainment center about 18 months ago...but decorate? Pshaw, nope.

  • Redecorate as in new paint and stuff I have lived here 6 years I have redone my daughters room I am getting set to repaint the living room over Thanksgiving break that will be our 6 yrs here. As far as furniture I haven't boughten anything new in years we did just inherit a dining room table in May not my style but hey it's a different one. I'm ready for some new reclining chairs and maybe a new couch though. Seasonal Decorating I do with the seasons

  • I'm ALWAYS decorating/re-decorating! I get bored, and so I go to my favorite Sherwin Williams store, pick a new paint color and go to town! I like sewing and crafts too, so I make my own curtains, make slip covers for furniture, and "faux texture" old antiques to give them a new old look! :o)
