More than 150 fresh ideas for creating exciting new pieces in a weekend or less

Featuring more than 150 innovative furniture flips and projects, this is a must-have guide for those looking to save money, live greener, and create unique pieces that showcase individual style. All of the stunning projects can be made in no more than a weekend and with standard tools and skills, so projects are accessible for everyone.and#160;

Because chapters are organized by room, readers can easily find perfect projects and ideas for every area of the house. Even reluctant DIYers will be inspired by the transformation of a tired 1970s highboy dresser into a functional bathroom unit, an old entertainment armoire into a central kitchen organizer, and a trio of mismatched chairs into a unique bench. A helpful reference section provides information on sources and tools.

Review:

"Ever wrestled with nails, screws, and hex wrenches on 'ready to assemble' shelves, chairs, or tables, all the while thinking that you could just as easily make the same design cheaper and better from scratch? If so, White cheers you on. Her principles — 'keeping plans simple, using standard off-the-shelf materials and working with the most basic tools' make for well-thought-out projects even a rank beginner would itch to try. Each piece of furniture is identified with icons for difficulty, cost, and time required, so you don't get caught unawares mid-project. The proof of this DIY book's value is in the 'Getting Started' section, which describes simply the tools you'll need. You can use this book to build 34 simple designs, such as tables (including a Lego coffee table), chairs, beds, and benches. Author and blogger White (ana-white.com), who first built furniture during her newborn's naptime, still remembers her fear of firing a nail gun. Those of us who still feel that fear should be glad she's there as a guide. (Oct. 9)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Pretty Prudent Home is part design book, part DIY guidebook, with beautiful photography inviting readers to tackle projects both simple and sophisticated. With images from the authorsandrsquo; homes, as well as those of trendsetters around the world, fans are given an in-depth look into the lives and design sensibilities of a wide spectrum of stylish, aspirational, yet down-to-earth families. With modern projects that include repainting thrift store finds, repurposing vintage heirlooms, creating quick window treatments, sewing your first hand-me-down quilt, and even tips on the easiest ways to throw a last-minute party or host a bake sale, Pretty Prudent Home offers practical projects and a large dose of Boneau and Curtisandrsquo;s trademark banter and whimsy to help you create a truly inspired yet livable home.
