The book then forays into projects for "around the home" offering a crash course in design/decorating for your home as well as useful techniques to use in decorating your home. Selected projects involve decorative techniques for painting walls, refinishing furniture ("reviving") with paint, window treatments, making decorative touches such as throw pillows and braided rugs, and many more. This chapter emphasizes using existing pieces of furniture, revamping them to give them a new look, while not costing a great deal of money. Some of the projects are simple, and some are more advanced, but the book takes you through each one step by step. Also included in this chapter is a very useful section on natural cleaners with recipes for more than thirty household cleaners.
We then move into the beauty and body-care section, in which many more recipes for bath and body products are given. Most of these use easily attainable ingredients, however, most will only last a short period of time and must be whipped up every time you wish to use one. Examples of recipes: hand cream, herbal deodorant, summer body splash, soaps, cold cream, lip gloss, face masks, toothpaste, men's cologne & aftershave, shampoos, perfumes, and natural home remedies.
Pets and wildlife receive treatment in the next chapter, which showcases projects that benefit our animal friends.Read more ›
