This book is fun to read, the projects look like a blast, and I am so inspired by the photos and all the authors' great suggestions for decorating inside and out, making guests feel special, and just making life more interesting. It's all I can do to not raid my mother's silver chest and start a fork-pendant necklace THIS INSTANT. The instructions seem easy to understand and complete, and I can see where these projects(those birdhouses!!!) will be great jumping off points for transforming cast-off bits into really cool art.

The Salvage Studio: Sustainable Home Comforts to Organize, Entertain, and Inspire is a guide full of do-it-yourself projects for turning excess scrap into beautiful and functional crafts for home, yard, or garden. From silverware hooks made of old serving utensils, to a birdbath crafted of a lampshade, to a trellis composed of disused golf clubs, these projects encourage both responsible recycling and artistic flair. Full-color photography showcases the many ideas for projects around the home, and the text offers additional tips to stimulate one's creativity and literally turn trash into treasures. Highly recommended.

From the simple to the sublime ... this book has it all! You won't find the "preachy" tone that we've come to hear so often from those who believe in repurpose, reusing, and recycling. Instead, you'll find yourself rethinking your idea of "junk". Lisa, Beth, and Amy (three women of a certain age, united in their "lust for rust) each write different chapters in the book, and the effect is that of a personal chat with a great girlfriend! The projects are manageable if you're a clutz, and very easy to execute if you have a minimum of hand-eye coordination. :-) Since I fall in the "klutz" category, I really appreciate the level of detail the gals provide. I'm lucky enough to live close enough to visit the Salvage Studio in person (they're located in Edmonds, WA -- just outside of Seattle), so I've seen the projects in the book "in real life". Do yourself a favor ... pick up a copy for yourself, and one as a gift for a friend!

I have purchased many books on crafting with junk, (things that others throw away or can't see the beauty in rethinking a different use for it). This book is a must have for many reasons. It gets right to the point about finding treasures headed for the recycle bin, at flea markets, and yard sales. Most people see only one use for something. This book teaches you to think outside the box, not to look at an object for what it is, rather what it can become. This book explains how to get involved in craft groups, that when an idea is revealed to a group of six, that each person adds their own variation to it and you now have six different ways to make the same project. The author talks about how to think outside the box, because there is no wrong way to do something. Read this book and then reread it over and over. The more you read this book the more ideas will jump off the pages into your lap. I've been making things from junk for over forty years, and this book is definitely the first book you should purchase. The author explains in detail that everything, is a potential craft project. The more you practice, the more ideas you come up with. I could write an entire book on the benefits of owning this one book. This book has opened up ideas that I already knew yet had forgotten. I don't know the ladies that wrote book, however, as you begin to read and study this book you will soon see that this book should be a best seller on crafting circles. Use a highliter to mark key points. You will soon see the love of taking others discards and creating something that reflects you and you will feel good. Hank

Organized very well. Easy to read. Good pictures. I could really relate to these ladies. This is their passion and they have done a terrific job of sharing it with others through this book.

Wow, I love recycling and using items that are in some folks opinions, no longer useful, loved, in style etc etc. Will be using several of the ideas. Just adjust some of them to what is available or on hand. I really enjoy it when visitors to my home say what a great idea, thats so creative etc etc.

I'm so sorry the Salvage Studio has closed! What a place to dream of visiting- making things from junk- not useless junk, but whimsical fun.

GREAT ideas!!

a keeper!
