Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Thrift stores, flea markets, basements and attics offer plenty of inexpensive--or even free--materials that, with a little imagination and transformation, can become exquisite decorative items. But, do you feel at a loss when you look at that battered table, those surplus chairs, those seemingly past-their-prime decorative objects? Dozens of beautiful and unique projects provide the answer to your quandary with a wealth of inspiration and how-to guidance. So, instead of regretfully passing by that bargain, you'll eagerly apply painted finishes and other craft techniques to bring out the hidden beauty in almost any kind of furniture and accent pieces. Discarded wooden cupboard doors give a boring hallway new life as a Secret Garden. A pair of beat-up lamps morph into living room accessories. Recycle an old trunk by making it into a table. Reupholster outdated chairs with the magic of a glue gun and some fabric. You'll have a beautiful home on a shoestring budget!

Synopsis:

“Quite remarkable and innovative...well-written directions. Recommended for public libraries.”—Library Journal. “Elliott uses her Oregonian home as a showcase of basic principles of making something from nothing. Her creations are wondrously whimsical and imaginative.”—Booklist.
