Washi Tape projects

This time I decided to Washi tape my laptop. Need to yet get more creative with it. But for a start, I feel this is good. Less is more, sometimes :)



Upcycled lamp

This is something I did few weeks ago, but managed to click pictures only now.

I had this lantern which I bought years ago and it was just lying around in my kitchen loft. I also had this string of lights I bought for Christmas which I wanted to use somehow. Bingo! I am sure you guessed by now. I just got them together to make a lamp :)

Just pushed the string lights into the lantern

Voila! :)
Enlightened :)

Sits pretty on my living room corner now!

 Do you have any upcycled projects done lately. Mail me your pictures to colourmilldesigns(at)gmail(dot)com. I shall feature them here.

Washi Tapes!

I mentioned about the Washi Tapes K got for me from Japan. I have not really tried doing anything, except for few strips on a gift. So yesterday I googled about washi, found few ideas and decided to personalise my phone :) So far, I have used only one of the four. Need to figure out what to do with the rest!

So colourful, right :)

It totally matches my phone colours :)
Next, it is going to be my laptop :) What are your ideas??

Kitchen refashioned!

My kitchen has been needing makeover since I don't know when, that long. So like I mentioned earlier, I got  rid of all my plastic spice boxes and got myself lovely looking glass jars. I avoid buying plastic as well. All my fridge bottles are glass. Suddenly I see a rage of glass storage options in the market as well. It is fun shopping for Kitchen stuff, I am sure you will agree.


Don't they look cute? :) 

My favourite coloured mugs and K's favourite glass Latte mugs

Stumbled upon these cute chai glasses on a trip to market one day
Now, they are mine :)

Glimpses of my home..

Hello Friends,

I am slowly getting back at regular blogging. I badly want to.

Latest from my abode is that, I have been re-decorating. Things which I have had for more that 1.5 years are finally on my wall now :P . Yeah, I am too lazy to call the carpenter/electrician and the sorts. I feel they disturb my routine (rather the routine-less routine!) :-)

So the happy news is that finally I have fixed my lampshades and few shelves. I am loving the new look of my home. Hope you all will too :)
