So we have these built-in shelves in our family room and I’m not liking it much lately. It is sometimes too much of work and dusting them is a never-ending chore 😦
As you see, I filled the smaller ones with little bit of everything that mostly matches the family room style(traditional). I love the way it came up – different shapes, colors and textures. And the dolls are from Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, India and US 🙂
However, filling the large shelf (9′ X 3.5′) was a big challenge!
Finally, after 6 months I have a perfect and inexpensive piece of art ❤
Inspired from BHG (better homes and garden) magazine – decided to give it a try. I started looking for wall paper and textured gift wrap rolls. I couldn’t find anything that matches the room style and decided to go with fabric.
I am really into Peacock lately…;-) and couldn’t wait to order this beautiful 24 inch fabric panel @ Fabric.com for $10.
Bought 2 custom sized dowel rods and jute twine from Home Depot.
Sew the edges, rolled the top and bottom of the fabric over the rods and attached with glue and staples.
I absolutely love the way it looks and costed me less than $25.

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby and recently mother to an adorable little munchkin :-), an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and now currently @Portland, Oregan. Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here...
When we first we moved to US(2012) ,our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started.
You must be wondering HOW?
I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs.
Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav!
Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-)
And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :)
And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :)
Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
