Table Top Decorating

I'm planning to make a table center piece for our living room and dining room.  This will be in preparation for the Christmas season.  But I'm thinking of something unique and of course easy on the pocket.  I would admit since I came back home a month ago, I've been spending quite a lot for the restoration of the house.  I couldn't afford to see that my home sweet home was devastated after the great flood that struck our city almost two months ago.  Thus, I'm hoping to use my creativity in decorating my home without ruining my budget.  

I think these two designs here are cool.... 

I could very well get some twigs from the backyard and buy some tea candles at a local shop. This looks so natural and elegant.  I'm feeling excited to come up with one. :)

This design is quite simple and I already have readily available materials at home.  I think I would settle for this one for the dining room and the first design would surely be great for my living room. :)

Anymore ideas to share?

Stationery Organizer

I am thinking of having a crafts corner which will double as a charging station for our home gadgets. Actually, this will be done on a repurposed mini dresser that I bought from a furniture store few years ago.  Since I have ordered for a custom made wardrobe cabinet for our master's bedroom, I've lost the space for that mini dresser, so I just thought of using it for other purpose and also to relocate it somewhere in the dining area.   As usual, I am finding ways and means to save for my home projects and to make use of what's already available in the house, so I thought of making my own stationery organizer, something similar to the one shown above.  It's actually made from recycled card boards, paper towel rolls and toilet paper tubes.  I have lots of these at home, so I might as well use these for my project.  

Will post here my finished project soon. :)

Cute Remote Control Holder

If you're thinking of putting all your remote control in one place, then I think it would really be a great idea to have a remote control organizer.  Photo shown above is an example of a cute remote control holder which I found from my Pinterest board.  You can make use of colorful fabric from your old pillow cases or table cloth.  Just hand sew it and add more designs to make it more appealing to the eyes.  I think this could be hung at the side of the TV rack or your wall unit or divider.

This will solve your problem of remote control being misplaced most of the times. :)

A very cool idea!
