This is a fun book for people who love to craft and recycle. While it focuses on recycling things you can salvage from thrift shops, antique stores, sales and other venues, many of the projects can easily be tackled with materials you may already have in your own homes - things that are a little dated or that you haven't used for their intended purposes for a while.

I've done projects similar to some of those here bu
This is seemingly what the author does for a living and she walks you through the projects she has used to decorate her own laid back and inviting home. Besides the projects, she discusses where and how she gathers the items to repurpose.

Projects include: Pillows, Bags, Recovering Ottomans, Pet Beds, Garden Chair Covers.

Loved loved loved this book! It's set up in a very different way than most DIY books, which is part of what I loved. Great projects and (best of all!) great inspirational photos of the author's home and studio. Now I can't wait to try out some of her ideas...

Adult nonfiction; sewing/crafting. Limited instruction for projects you probably won't want to do or have the materials for, but plenty of inspiration for refurbishing those lovely but flawed pieces of furniture you've inherited from your great aunt.

Normally I enjoy looking at this sort of thing (home projecty stuff) but I never actually do anything with the ideas in the book. This one I enjoyed so much, I plan to use a few of her ideas. That's what a DIY book should be, right?
Limited instruction for projects that are shown, but plenty of inspiration for refurbishing those lovely but flawed pieces of furniture you've inherited from your great grandma or someone like that.

This really inspired me to try and be crafty...only to discover I don't own a sewing machine or the ability to randomly find one. But fear not! I shall start reupholstering things soon.
Using materials found at thrift stores to remake--the ultimate in reducing, reusing, & recycling! Also shows how to make cording, slipcovers, and add nail head trim.

love this book and all the cool stuff she had repurposed with fabrics. Some projects were to loud for my taste but inspiring nonetheless
A few interesting projects in here.
