DIY Room Decor

Your home is a workshop and your brain the mastermind.
These holidays, Be Consciously Creative !

Pep your room up ! Every morning when you wake up you face a blank door, but not any more. Brighten up your day by doing up your room door !


What you need:
  1. Acrylic paint (black)
  2. 2 paint brushes (1 thick &1 thin)
  3. Crepe paper (4-5 different colors)
  4. Tissue paper
  5. Glue
  6. Measuring tape
  7. Pencil

How to do it:

Step 1 : Wash your door with soap. Make sure it is clean. You can clear the blemishes with white paint if       your door is white.

Step 2 : With the measuring tape measure the length and breath of your door. For a door of dimensions 80 cm x 200 cm , leave 24 cm from the left and draw a rough outline of a tree bark with a pencil.Make sure that the bark is not too thick or thin.

Step 3 : Draw branches from the tree bark to the top of the door.

Step 4 : If you are happy with your drawing, go ahead and give a black outline with acrylic paint using the thin brush.

Step 5 : Use the thick brush to fill in the color. Make sure your brush is thoroughly dry to ensure uniformity of the black pain.

Step 6 : Cut out the different colored crepe paper in the same of leaves in two different sizes. 

Step 7 : When the paint is dry , select your color combination and stick the leaves using the glue.

Step 8 : If there is some space left on your door ,  you can even make cardboard cuttings of your initials and paint is a different color. Stick small crumpled balls on the letters to make it look better.


Now, my room has got white blank walls. It looked quite depressing so I decided to make it a bit colorful, pep it up.

What you need :

  1. White thread
  2. Scissor
  3. Cellotape
  4. Measuring tape
  5. Crepe paper (4-5 different colors)

How to do it :

Step 1 : Cut the crepe paper into whatever shape you want. It can be circles, squares, any geometrical shape  to maintain uniformity.I chose triangles.

Step 2  : Measure the length of your wall. Cut pieces of string into the desired length.

Step 3 :  Stick the first piece of colored crepe paper on the string using the cellotape. Continue the same       process till you reach the end of the string. Make sure some distance is left between two pieces of crepe paper.

Step 4 :  Once you have repeated this process with all the strings (8 in my case) , measure equal distances on               your wall and stick the strings horizontally or vertically.

Step 5 : Since the crepe paper is light, it may tend to fly. To prevent this, you can stick two more pieces of     cellotape on the wall. You can also make a picture wall.


You can even paint your cupboard with inspirational words, or pictures or even your name.
Download pictures from the internet which you feel should be on your cupboard.

    When I look at this I think of Nonie's mummy Aunty Villa. She was wonderful in craftwork.

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest!
I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.

 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…
