We all love a beautiful home, don’t we? Keeping this in mind, here is a handy source of weekend inspiration to transform your home into a happy place.
According to several surveys conducted, home improvement projects have been experiencing incredible pandemic-fuelled growth since the last year. There is a spur in creative activities to kill boredom and monotony. It comes as no surprise because families have been spending more time than ever before in their homes due to the lockdown. In addition to that, every individual also craves a space that uplifts the spirits during these challenging times.
So then, what better than doing something with your own hands and achieving a kind of self-fulfilment? We have some simple yet exciting projects for the living room, bedroom, kids room, kitchen, bathroom and balcony that can be completed in a weekend. The best part is that none of it requires calling in the professionals. You can do it all by yourself even if you have no prior experience in it. Let us help you with your aspirations without burning a hole in your pocket.
Is there a DIY job that you keep meaning to do but never find (or make) the time? If yes, then what are weekends for? They can be the perfect time to take it up, express your individuality and maximise your creative self-confidence. In fact, with the right tools, you are already halfway there!

We find balcony to be the most delightful little corner in the entire house. You can make this space relaxing with some interesting seating arrangements.
For décor pieces, you can add some colourful throw pillows on a small bench to create a cosy atmosphere. We know that shopping for throw pillows can be a bit pricey but not if you create your own! All you have to do is take a plain pillow and give it a designer look with a colourful paint scheme. You can paint horizontal or vertical stripes for a vibrant effect. You can even take a more ambitious path and go for a gradient effect on them.
Pro Tip: If you have three shades of a single colour, you can mix white to the main colour for variation and successfully achieve a gradient look on the throw pillows.
