This book is full of great ideas, some you've seen and few you have'nt.
Either way the book is well photographed, it has how to's . If you are
into shabby chic, flea market finds, estate sales, English and French country,
or the Scandinavian look, then this book was written and photographed
with you in mind.
I hope the writers of this book write another book. I loved this book and find it
useful, I'm not passing it to anyone, I'm afraid I will not get it back. It has
lots of pictures. Everything is explained well.
They are speaking my language of using what you have in new and fun ways.

Checked this book out of local library and was blown away by all the great ideas. Bought 3 copies: 1 for me and 2 for friends for gifts. They also LOVED the book. I have made several of the projects already! Couldn't believe I got each book for around $10-worth so much more!!

For the most part the book contained some clever ideas, but too much was devoted to textile projects that were not all that attractive.

A great way to recycle. I never thought of it as recycling until this book mentioned it and Ii really felt better about the antique booth that I have and the part that I play in recycling old objects. It's pretty exciting. One thing i have noticed is that the young people of today don't care as much for the antiques as such like we do, but they really like the products you can make from them.

It amazes me at what people can come up with when they put their mind to it on using old items they may have inherited or have found at sales. Some things were pretty basic, some ideas were rather odd. Guess I have seen so many of these kinds of books that it didn't really add up to a 4 or 5 star rating for me. I gave it a three only because it seemed basic and some of the ideas were a little off the wall in their own sort of way. It is all in what you like I guess.
