French Aesthetics for your home : Budget-friendly and easy Home Decor DIY

Happy New Year! This is my first post in the new year. I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. I have been taking up some writing projects and doing up my house in between. Last week I visited few nurseries around this place. I am in the middle of landscaping the backyard here, well, better-half has been away for quite sometime now. 

Yesterday I got few plants for my front yard, few potted plants to start with. This time I wanted to keep my decor white. I have kept few white flower pots on my window sill. Aren't these looking beautiful ? 

Just add a coat of white paint on your regular pots and there you have it! French aesthetics for your home :) 

All you need is some supplies -

A paint brush
White paint 
A dusting cloth
Emery paper
Few sheets of newspaper
Painting gloves
A pot for mixing
Flower pots

First things first. Put on your gloves and wear an apron.
Clean your flower pots first with emery paper then with a dusting cloth to remove all the dirt. Emery paper will make the surface even and give your pots a nice finish when you paint. 
Paint one coat of color.
Let it dry
Do a second coat if you want, I did a single coat as my paint was slightly thick.
Make sure the pots are well-dried. 

Enjoy and appreicate yourself. Have a great week.Much love!

Hi! How are you doing ? I wanted to share a cool DIY project I worked on a few weeks back. I was sifting through ideas to get my home closer to looking what I wanted it to look like when I moved here. After the initial setting up of things, and before we bought new stuff to populate the many vacant areas, I thought I'd first do something about objects lying idle and put them to good use. I started  with a remnant of a previously owned (and long separated) aquarium: its stand. I was practically stuck with the wrought-iron piece for over two years. While the aquarium was long gone, it had left behind its metallic abode to anti-decorate my previous living space and now this one! This sorry piece of metal was languishing in some corner of my house, gathering dust and my ire. The reason I did not dispose it off is...well...I don't know. To think of it now, may be it was because it had to transform into this new avtaar.

I had been craving for a bedside table for sometime now. When …
