You need not sweat with heavy stuff like carpentering, stitching, plumbing and stuff like that to revamp your home.Here are a few tips to fuel your imagination and get you going -
>Take some inexpensive fabric,fabric color, some sponge and cut it in the shape of a flower or a star or whatever you fancy.swirl this sponge in the color of your choice and press it on the cloth. Its like batik printing. you can use this fabric as a curtain, table cloth or a bed spread
>Take a dried tree branch , cut the stubs but do retain some because we do want the end product to look like a branch :).Paint it with varnish or paint. let it dry nicely and you can use it instead of a curtain rod !
>Take old car tyres, remove the spokes, fill the centre of this tyre with foam or old pillows and you have a nice seater!
>Take some soda crates, hammer & nail them together. plop a mattress on it and there ! a nice inexpensive bed or a divan ! actually u can make a book shelf or a table too this way,
>Take a helmet, remove the wizor, paint some real cool designs on it ,fix it on a rod and attatch a bulb in it to make a funky lampshade !
>Apply paper mash on inflated balloons and let dry, then prick and burst the balloon. what you have is a paper mash balloon now to use as a piece of decoration in a flower pot instead of flowers or to hang a bunch of them in a corner.
>Take old glass bottles, preferably empty wine bottles, wash them nice and clean and let dry. fill them up with buttons, gems, crystals or glitter and tie a satin or lace ribbon around its neck. looks very attractive as a center piece on a table .
>Take thermacol and glue.cut four pieces of thermacol in 4/2 inches and two pieces in 2 inches to make a square box. Apply glue all over it and sprinkle a lot of glitter. what you have is an eye catching show piece .
<Take a small tubelight and fix it under your bed.when you switch off all the lights and switch on just this one ...well a cozy,glowing,romantic little bedroom !
