Great Ideas for Re-decorating with what you already have

I recently needed to repair a library chair that my cat has made a nasty scratch on. I was going to have the chair professionally reupholstered until I saw Marian McEvoy on The Oprah Winfrey Show. When I saw what she was doing with a glue gun and how she decorated her gorgeous home with one, it gave me an idea that I could fix my precious chair with a glue gun and some fabric. I ordered her book and was delighted to see that it was filled with projects that not only taught me how to cheaply make my chair look like new again, but also gave me inspiration to make my curtains look new, redo my old throw pillows and dress up my lampshades. If you like to redecorate often, this is a must-have book because it's all about redoing what you already have or how to buy affordable objects and room accessories and make them look unique and expensive.

An Interesting Decorating Concept

A maestro with the glue gun. Ms. McEvoy has pioneered using glued to add decorative pieces, to dress up virtually everything around her house. Sometimes her decoration has gotten a bit strange, I don't think I'd want the seashell decorated fireplace in my house. In a beach house, it might go well. Some of her other pieces show features that I like much better. Her way of adding a bit of trim to a very plain lampshade suits my likes much better. In this regard we're just getting into a sense of style. It isn't expected that we'd like each others style. What is expected is that she would use a wide variety of items in this book to show what she is capable of doing with the glue gun. And on this she comes over very well. I also liked her comments on selecting the glue gun. The first one I bought was a super cheap one and it barely worked at all, I eventually threw it away. Following her recommendation I'm going to go look for an Aleen's Ultimate. The different tips make a lot of sense.

Stick em Up!

This is the most amazing, sophisticated and chic approach ever to hit "do it yourself" crafting. Marian McEvoy's simple yet inspiring ideas and instructions are sure to give our home a second life without spending a complete fortune. What an absolutely creative and postive force this book is! I intend to start with my pillows and lampshades and then take on some of my auntie's chairs that have been in my basement just waiting! I can't wait for book #2!

A book for Everyone

I used to think that I had to rely on professionals to do everything for my home, but, now I have found an easy and charming way to turn my house into a home that reflects me! All of my feather and button collections are going up in unique patterns. I am going to even do a "Japanese" room with pieces of kimonas I have collected on pillows and footrests. Bravo!

original ideas

i found many new uses for simple materials such as leaves, shells,dried flowers, embroidery and even pebbles. the use of ribbons and braided trim was beautiful and modern looking. i have never used a glue gun before, but i just bought two. i intend to email the author -- she printed her email address in the front of the book so that readers can share project information and ask questions!
