Overview

Remember those beautiful iron rails, shutters, and even heat registers from days gone by? You've probably had your eye on them at flea markets, yard sales, or salvage yards, but weren't quite sure how they would fit into your decor. Transform those architectural details into furniture, art, and other functional items that will add instant charm and grace to your home or garden. What was once an Art Deco mantel becomes a headboard; an ornate window guard makes a great pot rack. Any one of these 45 projects will enable you to create something new with all the elegance of the historic architectural remnant that it's crafted from. The techniques you'll try are varied, yet the skills needed for most of the projects are minimal. And even if you don't want to pick up a hammer, you'll be inspired to find the perfect look for your home. Imagine a porch support column as a corner shelf. It will brighten up a bare area and provide an unusual showcase for vases, dolls, and knick-knacks. A rosette is a decorative molding used to connect the side and head trims of a door casing, but in your hands, it will turn into a delightful little clock. Want a table that you can rest your feet on? Feel right at home with one designed from hardwood flooring for the top (the legs are balusters!). And evoke memories of yesteryear with a stand-alone cupboard made up from a farmhouse door and a pair of kitchen cabinets. Give new life to architectural elements with one-of-a-kind, stylish projects that complement any home decor.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These books provide a multitude of projects to transform items found in salvage yards, thrift stores, flea markets, and yard sales into beautiful decorative accessories. In Junk Chic, Elliot uses her own home as an example of what can be done with cheap finds, and the transformation is quite remarkable and innovative. Powell focuses on how to incorporate flea market finds into decorating schemes, illustrating her suggestions with color photographs and interspersing projects throughout. Rhatigan discusses items found in architectural salvage yards where pieces of houses wind up before demolition. His projects range from simple (transforming a metal porch support into a corner shelf) to more complex (building a blanket chest from salvaged doors), and safety tips on working with metal, glass, and wood are provided. Though for each book, too few illustrations are provided with the well-written directions, skilled crafters will still find the projects here useful. Recommended for public libraries where there is an interest. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
