“Discover how to update and repurpose homeware and furniture for an effortlessly chic home. Nowadays, it is easy to find affordable furniture for your home from chain stores, but those pieces can lack character. This is where furniture hacking comes in–updating, repurposing, and personalizing to create stylish, unique masterpieces. Here, Hester van Overbeek shows you 35 ways to update your home accessories, soft furnishings, and even wooden furniture, all with step-by-step photos to guide you along the way. Projects range from simpler ideas, such as a table made from stacked old magazines (that can also act as a stool) or a patchwork rug, created by sewing small inexpensive mats together, to ways to create larger pieces that cost a fraction of the price it would be to buy them new. Discover how to make your own four-poster bed by combining a budget bed base and pieces of reclaimed wood, or convert a bookcase into a sideboard. There are five chapters–Living Room, Kitchen and Dining Room, Bedroom, Home Office, and Outdoor Space–and each one includes a “quick craft” idea for beginner upcyclers, too. Why not paint cutlery handles with nail polish to update them, or make your own bedside light simply using a shelf support? Hester’s philosophy is that you don’t need much money or many DIY skills to make your house into a cozy, stylish home. With the right inspiration, you can create something beautiful.”
