Summary

Discover how to make unusual and unique homeware with Creating the Vintage Look.

Upcycling is about taking something old, vintage, treasured, or possibly even broken, and giving it a new lease of life by turning it into something new. It's a stylish and thrifty way of decorating and enhancing your home that avoids waste. Here, Ellie Laycock shows you how you can make truly beautiful objects from things you might otherwise have thrown away. Be inspired by the ingenuity of her projects—including turning old tin trays into chic magnetic noticeboards, using teapots as quirky planters, transforming a vintage fruit crate into a rustic bedside table, and converting metal jello molds into tea light holders. All of the 35 projects have clear instructions and artworks to guide you when you make them, and are grouped on a room-by-room basis. Complete with a helpful techniques section that will teach you any skills you need to know, Creating the Vintage Look will inspire your creativity and rejuvenate your junk.
