This book had some ideas I really liked: the coffee table on casters, the bucket wall shelf, the vintage milk crate stool, the galvanized leaf wreath, and the end cap wreath. I did notice that the coffee table instructions did not tell you how to make the wooden top sit level and steady on the bin.

That said, I did have some quibbles with the book. First, sources for vintage galvanized materials makes no mention of thrift stores, which are by far the best source in this area. Have Goodwill and the like not reached the Northeast? Second, terminology. I don't know if the difference is regional or generational, but I call some of the materials by different names. Distracting! For instance, what the author calls strap iron I call pipe strap. That one I could puzzle out by looking at the illustrations. However, altho' I have some experience with heating and cooking stoves with stovepipes, I did not recognize the pipe end caps. None of the local hardwares seem to carry them; I did find them online. Still can't envision how they are used. I would also divide buckets, bins, and tubs differently than the author. Quibbles as I said, but they did divert me from thinking about the projects to thinking about American dialects. Not the author's intent I'm sure.

One of the best DIY books out there. I am a beginner at DIY projects, but between the pictures and the detailed instructions I end up looking like a pro! The projects and ideas are all so original and I can't wait to try each and everyone! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new and fun way to add something stylish to your home. Beautifully written.

This is a great how-to book for crafters who want to work with metal and metal objects to repurpose them into home dec items. I love vintage metal along with new metal hardware both of which are featured here in new and unique projects. Most projects do require a power screw gun and basic tools (a few do involve cutting wood, which if you don't have power saws could be done at your local home improvement store) but all doable. This book makes great use of metal hardware in unique ways. You will enjoy a trip to the hardware store seeing metal parts in new ways with inspiration from this pretty book. Great directions and photos to make all your crafting easy.

Love this book not only for the easy to follow tutorials (using easy to obtain materials) but also for the beautiful photography. I'm already scouring flea markets and my home improvement store for more galvanized metal to transform!
