Format: Paperback
Very clever book. While some of it does lean a bit toward county chic, the fabric items can be easily altered in style with a different choice of materials. Many of the storage ideas were a brilliant mix of buying cheap or stock items and repurposing. I found the room divider especially inventive. I liked that it was divided by room instead of materials. Also some interesting "how to's" in the back for reference. The only reason I subtracted a star is that I felt many of the projects would benefit from more details for construction/creation. Ideally, they would include a CD - and it would be a 6 star book.

I like to do decoration stuff my self. I have a small apartment and I like the made myself and country decoration. There are so many good ideas and unfortunately I can't make all and the choice isn't very easy. I need to have a big house to make all projects and time because with a full time job isn't easy.

I think this is a great go to book for inspiration to make your home functional and beautiful. Unfortunate for Me, got this book from the library but I am certainly planning to add this to my library. My own complaints about the book is that for the room designs, I wish they would have added more pictures. I think that is it. I ve already taken a few projects from the book and will be working on over the next few weeks such as making a mobile island for my kitchen from a tool truck or utility cart.

Looked through the book and thought some ideas were pretty good. Still haven't tried any of them out though. Will see how things go, but seems like a good book.
