Fiery Globe

Fiery Globe

It’s been a year since I started working on Menstrupedia and every part of my brain is occupied with it’s thoughts. I am obsessed with Menstrupedia’s work and enjoy it so much that I hardly feel like doing some thing else. Few months back amidst of no where, I suddenly felt like making a Lamp and came up with this. It took me an hour to make it. I could not think of a suitable name so I asked my Instagram friends to suggest a suitable name. Fiery Globe was suggested by Prasoon Gupta, I liked it very much and decided to call it the same 🙂
I am able to finally post it here along with the tutorial. This lamp is made out of the things that were available at my home. You can also just use the bamboo globe wrapped with lights and hand them to lit up a cozy corner.

Here’s the step-by-step tutorial:

Making old furnitures new

I keep shifting cities either for education or for work. Every time you shift in a new house, buying suitable furniture always sounds interesting but while shifting they make huge luggage. To avoid that I generally buy old furnitures and try to give them a make over to suit the ambiance for my home.
Here is how I made a very old wooden box into a new and lively stool.


Get your favourite colours and let the imagination flow. I painted the whole box with a single base colour and then drew patterns on all the four sides.

This is how you make the seat of the stool. Foams are available in various thickness, get a suitable one from a home furnishing shop.

The brand new stool is ready!!


The new colourful stools looks good in the garden too. And is liked by kids as well as adults.


P.S. The expert models featured here are my friends 😛
Similarly, I painted this very old wooden rack. The person I bought this from says its almost 15 years old. I really appreciated the quality of the wood that was used. It almost looked new after painting and added a very colourful ambiance to my kitchen.

Use Kites for decorating walls

My friend used kites for decorating the hostel room at our design school. We saved some of the kites after the “Kite Festival”(in Gujarat, India) getting inspired by her, I thought of using them to decorate the empty walls of our home.
Kites, sequins, some mirror pieces, marker and that’s all you need to give a colorful beautiful look to those empty walls.

Cup dé light: Tutorial

We were trying to make some decorative with series lights & paper cups and came up with this.
Paper cups used for coffee, tea or water can be very easily recycled to make an eco-friendly exotic lamp.
I am just loving the ambiance light this lamp creates in our drawing room.


Every point where one layer of the cup flower comes in contact with the other layer is glued.
It takes some time for layers to get stuck with each other, so its better to finish sticking first 2 layers and then adding the 3rd one.
The red dots shown here are the glued points.
