Wonderland dining table!



















I usually take a break from the kitchen during the weekend as I believe my stove and oven need a little time off. This weekend was a beautiful and well spent one. I used the time to dress up the dining table. Our dining table is fairly old; Sandeep bought it when he got his first apartment and it just had a million stains and looked fairly rundown. Since a new dining table would not fit in our budget, I decided to spend a small sum on fabric, pillow stuffing and ribbons to make this dull room look a tad bit interesting. My theme was the Mad Hatter, well that's what I thought. I didn't like the Alice in Wonderland movie so much but as a kid, I absolutely loved the book. There was this point in my life where I hated colour and always wore black, but now I can't get enough of colour and this room depicts exactly that. I believe the life is filled with problems, stress, tension and mundane colours are not really going to help with anything! Well that's what I did all weekend. Done!
