Ikea Hack: Console Table

Recently, I've been drawn into transforming affordable furniture into personalised pieces. And my very first experiment was with a laptop table that was purchased from IKEA not long ago. I initially wanted a custom console that would fit a certain area in our home, however, I eventually decided against it, mostly because the whole process was going to consume a lot of time, especially since I would have to sketch a design first! And as much as I would have loved to do that, I was running out of patience as that area was desperate to be occupied.

DIY: Marble Mug

I thoroughly enjoyed this project, and that's mainly because it was quick, amazingly easy and gave gorgeous results. 

You will need the following items:
  1. A White Mug
  2. Nail Polish (any kind will do)
  3. Small Tub of Warm Water (preferably one that you don't particularly care for, as it will stain)
  4. Toothpick/Skewer

DIY: Abstract Painting

After 6 whole years of not having any contact with a canvas or a paint brush, I am more than happy to share the end result of the abstract painting I worked on recently. And as always, it was exceptionally therapeutic.

I used pearl acrylic paint for the base and a touch of dark grey and gold.

Console Crush

A console is definitely a piece of furniture you would want to invest in because it could be the only product in the room that could make a difference. Normally consoles are situated against a wall in a hallway, or in any empty space that is in desperate need to be occupied. And they're more of a decorative piece that don't exactly serve a particular purpose; therefore you can get pretty innovative with the design. Nevertheless, it should also complement the rest of your furniture items.
I'm currently on the hunt for a lavish console and found quite a few that caught my attention.
