When it comes to home, I like it full of fragrance, things that make me smile, elements that inspire me, colours that give it character and all of that which is a statement of ‘me and hubby A’ as individuals who inhabit a happy abode.
So, when we are now creating a happy home for us in the Sheikh-land now, I am absolutely at the mission of making it a space reflecting all of the lovely elements I just talked about and merging my mission with my new-found love for DIY projects has made it all the more special.
All DIY-junkies – I am sure you can totally understand my feelings here! *Smiles*
Sharing with you all an easy-peasy DIY project which I am very proud to say, is not inspired from anywhere but is a creation entirely by yours truly.
So, when I went to Ikea, I found this bunch of wooden sticks with some amazing fragrance. I was so sure am buying it but was not sure how and where exactly I am going to use it.
With lots of permutations and combinations going on in my mind to fit these in somewhere, I just found this glass bowl lying in my Kitchen cupboard – I have not used it ever. The moment I looked at it, I smiled because now I had found a home for the fragrant sticks.
But just putting them in the bowl, would not have made it any special. Isn’t?
And so, I thought a little more. While on my walk through the nearby park, I picked a broken tree stem and took out a stone from my collection of stones, I have a habit of picking up when I am on the beach. There is a big collection now of amazingly shaped stones with me, waiting to be used in some interesting DIY projects.
Anyways, coming back to the task on hand, I painted ‘DREAM’ on the stone using water colours.
I tied the stone using a thin rope across the bowl and also tugged the little stem piece on the side. I tied another thin wooden thread kind of a thingy (which came with the Ikea wooden pack) around the bowl. It gave it a vintage feel. And then put the fragrant sticks inside.
The vintage looking ‘DREAM-POTPOURRI’ was ready and it can be used as a centre-piece on your coffee table or on the top of your desk, on your books – reminding you of being tied to, holding on to your dream leading to a future full of fragrance. Likey? 🙂
Do drop in a line if you like this one. I love to hear from you guys.
Until then, ***HAPPY DREAMING***!!!
