Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Breathing new life into old household knick knacks that would otherwise be condemned to a life in the attic or the back of your wardrobe has never been so much fun. This stylish new book shows you how to transform old curios into beautiful decorative ornaments for every room in the home. Innovative ideas abound, ranging from old metal jelly mould doorstops to a chandelier embellished with old silver cutlery! The projects are easy to follow yet stunningly effective. Various craft techniques are used throughout, including embroidery, decoupage and scrap-booking, so there really is something for everyone. It is suitable for lovers of the shabby-chic look and those who have an interest in, junk-shops, antiques and heirlooms.
