Furniture Hacks and Other Creative Updates for A Unique and Stylish HomeBook - 2015
Nowadays, it is easy to find affordable furniture for your home from chain stores, but those pieces can lack character. This is where furniture hacking comes in - updating, repurposing and personalising to create stylish, unique masterpieces. Here, Hester van Overbeek shows you 35 ways to update your home accessories, soft furnishings and even wooden furniture, all with step-by-step photos to guide you along the way. Projects range from simpler ideas, such as a table made from stacked old magazines (that can also act as a stool) or a patchwork rug, created by sewing small inexpensive mats together, to ways to create larger pieces that cost a fraction of the price it would be to buy them new. Chapters include: Living Room, Kitchen and Dining Room, Bedroom, Home Office, and Outdoor Space - and each one includes a 'quick craft' idea for beginner upcyclers, too. With the right inspiration, you can create something beautiful.
