A little luck in finding them, and the instructions in this book will give you all you need to turn junk into great pieces for every home. Dozens of exceptional projects with a wealth of how-to guidance will motivate you to apply painted finishes and other craft techniques to bring out the hidden beauty in furniture and accent pieces. Discarded wooden cupboard doors give a hallway new life as a Secret Garden. Recycle an old trunk by making it into a table. Reupholster outdated chairs with the magic of a glue gun and some fabric. You'll have a beautiful home on a shoestring budget.
