I haven't recently posted anything much about my home - this is what happens when you travel too much I guess :) But when I come back from my travels I always want to come to a very warm and beautiful place I call home and I like to do all sorts of things to convert it into this cosy, colourful and comfortable place to live in. Below are some of the things I created or added a personal touch to - to make them less boring.

This is a small stool which I decorated using decoupage technique, which looked like this and this before.

I sprayed this clock silver, then added the new background and the round elements to its lower panel and sides.

After adding the knobs brought from India to the wooden desk and the chests of drawers they definitely started to look better - slightly more exotic and now they really stand out. I love those Indian knobs - such a simple yet exquisite invention! Here is how the desk drawers looked before.

This simple IKEA tray started to look much better after I covered its bottom with wrapping paper and a layer of transparent acrylic lacquer.

And the last but not least is the old broken lamp found in the attic... We had to remove all the old cables and replace them with new ones. I was lucky to find a couple of old lampshades in a second hand shop, one of which suited well the recovered lamp.

Giving things the new look and feel is quite easy - sometimes it costs nothing to create an absolutely unique thing for your place. I really have fun doing so :)

We all must make our home as comfortable as we can in order to have a better living in there...
