About the book: 
The authors love taking everyday items and giving them a twist. Upcycling and repurposing are key terms in their design lexicon. As they say: “Trends come and go, but you have to live in your home, so make it a comfortable space that can grow and change with you.” 
Through their innovative ideas, inspired use of materials and ability to reinvent ordinary objects, the authors present projects suitable for all craft and décor enthusiasts, from beginners to those with more advanced skills. 
Whether you prefer to tackle projects with a handsaw and cordless drill, craft paper and scissors, or a sewing needle and delicate trim, there is something here for everyone.
From storage solutions to paint techniques, through knitted rugs and upholstered seats, to stamped tiles and outdoor seating, there are ideas to brighten and enliven your home and outdoor spaces – all showcased via beautiful photography, concise instructions and an appealing design.
