Groundhog Day, Valentine’s Day, and Black History Month- three well known days or month-long observances that we’re all probably pretty familiar with.
However, did you know that February is also home to several other nationally recognized observances that you’ve probably never heard of?
For instance: February is also National Cherry Month, Sweet Potato Month, National Mend a Broken Heart Month, Grapefruit Month, Spunky Old Broads Month, National Time Management Month, National Bird Feeding Month, and the list goes on.
Among the many fun and unique themes associated with this month, there was one in particular that stood out to us – Pull Your Sofa Off the Wall Month. There’s no need to go crazy with the renovations-it’s not meant to be a full-fledged project, but instead, a little nudge towards breathing new life into a room that might have been neglected for far too long.
This little February gem is meant to inspire everyone to re-organize a room or two in the house by doing simple tasks such as re-arranging where furniture goes (starting with the sofa). But why stop there? After you’ve figured out a new layout for the room, you may as well start trying to de-clutter areas in the room that may be piling up with miscellaneous odds and ends.
Pull Your Sofa Off the Wall Month isn’t just for sofas- use this month to focus on a room that could use some simple updating. Bookshelves, decorative crates, DIY craft projects, 2 in 1 storage units that double as seating or tables- there are so many options available to us and this is your month to get going!
Pull Your Sofa Off the Wall Month also gives you a great excuse to replace your existing sofa if it’s been sitting around for a few too many years. By the time March rolls around, you’ll have something brag-worthy to show off and hopefully the motivation to continue with some other household projects that need to be tackled.
