Flea Market Style

Overview

It's said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and these days, homeowners everywhere are seeing beauty in unlikely places: at rummage sales, flea markets, the back rooms of antique shops, garage sales, even trash heaps. The book features hundreds of ideas and dozens of projects for transforming items other folks have cast away into reborn treasure.

Overview

It's said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and these days, homeowners everywhere are seeing beauty in unlikely places: at rummage sales, flea markets, the back rooms of antique shops, garage sales, even trash heaps. The book features hundreds of ideas and dozens of projects for transforming items other folks have cast away into reborn treasure. In some cases, it's simply a matter of finding the right setting for an object with interesting shape, color and texture. In other instances, a few ingenious alterations can give an item new life in an entirely different role-rusted metal doorknobs turn into drapery rod finials, for example.

This book series welcomes in the Martha Stewart crowd, but it gives them something Martha simply will never understand-practicality. This is the second entry in an all-new product line that will eventually number a dozen titles or more. The series will focus on ideas and inspiration, but unlike low-end books on home style, this exciting new line of books will feature a more sophisticated look and philosophy to match changing reader demographics. It also includes a large selection of easy-to-accomplish how-to projects.

Other books of ideas are big with concepts, but they don't show you how to achieve any of their wonderful ideas. In startling contrast to the norm, the books will not only feature hundreds of great ideas, they will also give readers complete directions for creating dozens of refreshingly easy projects, none requiring more than a few simple steps to accomplish.

Author Biography: Author Jerri Farris and designer Tim Himsel form the creative team behind the books. Together, they have designed and authored Building Garden Ornaments and Fences, Walls & Gates. In addition, Farris has edited several dozen home improvement and gardening titles and Himsel's creative work can be seen in the book designs of more than 50 home improvement and gardening titles. Jerri Farris lives in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and Tim Himsel lives in Savage, Minnesota.
