Overview

From "the DIY maven" (Architectural Digest), comes a beautiful, practical craft book for both aspiring and seasoned makers. Here are 60 projects for high-quality furniture, textiles, and accessories to enjoy all through the house—plus all the techniques you need for dyeing or sewing fabric, cutting leather, antiquing mirrors, working with wood, and much more.

A Well-Crafted Home
includes simple, creative details that will tailor a space to your taste. More than just “DIY” crafts, these carefully designed projects call for good materials—like linen, leather, and wood—so the finished product will last you a lifetime. Ranging from beginner to more advanced, each item elevates a room in a way you'd never expect: a large-scale painting with an effortless “dot” design looks like a modern piece of art, flax linen bedding sewn with a few easy seams is gorgeous way to set off the bed (and is more affordable than you would think), and a copper pipe rack for hanging clothes is so pretty, you’ll want to keep it on display.
