Not a bad book, but not what I wanted There is a tremendous amount of STUFF in this book Great ideas are a little lost in the layout of the book there are fake tags with tips and trends but they lay on the page in a distracting haphazard way and distractions are abundant Some things are highlighted and given great detail as to how they have been revamped or reused but others are lost and left behind In the back of the book there are projects that have been given great detail As interesting as th [...]
After reading another one of the Junk Beautiful books and not really liking it, I thought maybe it was just that particular book so I wanted to give this one a try I feel the same way It all still just looks like junk It didn t turn out beautiful honestly.
It was ok t really the edition I wanted I m searching for the Outside Edition I wanted to check it out simply to see if I wanted to pursue the Outside Edition which I do Lots of interesting ideas in this book Downside is, I m sure you d have to have a fist full of money to buy some of the items in antique and second hand shops On the other hand, if you re adaptable, and can see outside the box , you might be able to use what you already have, or what you can pilfer from grandma s stash.
Now a couple of books that I recently found and could not put down are Junk Beautiful and Decorating Junk Market Style by Sue Whitney and Ki Nassauer I don t think I ve ever been as inspired to transform junk into treasures These ladies are fabulous You might have seen their articles in Country Home magazine Their website is sure to inspire you as well so I hope you head on over there and check it out.
I liked the parts of this book that actually featured the junk projects example wall mounted coat rack with old faucet knobs as the hooks However, the majority of the book just showed full color pictures of rooms, and expected you to magically figure out what was made from recycled junk Even the pictures captions weren t that helpful.
Nothing earth shattering or new in terms of concepts, but a nice visual book to look through Photos of several different homes are showcased so that the reader can see how different people use found treasures junk in various ways It also contains a few How To projects, which is nice.
This book was great for me I am passionate about repurposing things, and this was inspiring Full of clever and fun ideas I got this through the library, and kept renewing it because I loved it so much This will be one book I need to purchase to keep on my shelves
pretty outdated style wise
Waste of time Hit up google and find yourself some inspiration and advice, rather than the clutter shown here.
Another gift from my Aunt Some decorating tips for my empty house But hey I m finally getting some living room furniture tomorrow
I was surprised by the amount of projects included I will keep some in mind It s fun to look at things in a new way.
I picked this up because I had read their book Decorating Junk Market Style and really liked their ideas Here are great ideas here, too, there s just too much to wade through to get to them.
Fun ideas for upcycling.
Really disappointed in this book I felt like they were just hanging random junk on the walls so they could write a book about it Not impressed.
Thoroughly enjoyed the creativity of these two women OH WOW
I m all for picking up things off the street and bringing them home as long as they are bed bug free this book took that up a notch and had some great photos Now I just need the space
This was a pretty good book It is neat seeing a new use for something old.
So you re walking the streets on the nature strip is someones junk this book shows how it can be turned into someone else treasure Its about decorating on the super cheap and diy.
Cool ideas to transform junk into awesome additions to your decor Makes me wish I were creative
LOVE THIS BOOK Totally my style If you are an antique vintage flea marketer you will love the ideas Great ideas for storage Pictures are awesome.
A very beautiful book with lots and lots of spruced up junk I just have a feeling that if I were to try these ideas it would look like Junky Junk and not Junk Beautiful
lots of great ideas in this book
Great book to get inspired.
