Step-by-step instructions and more than 200 photos of 30 do-it-yourself projects show readers how to transform rescued and recycled objects into chic, stylish decorative items for the home. Full-color photos.
This is a great book for anyone wanting to decorate using recycled finds. However, if you've already purchased books by these authors, save your money. Salvage Style for your home is the same material for the most part page for page as their book "Recycle" or maybe "Recycle" is hugely identical to "Salvage Style". A large portion of the pictures and pages are simply republished with a new title.

A lot of the home decor books that come out have beautiful plans, that are virtually impossible for the average person to accomplish. This is not the case with Salvage Style in Your Home. All of the projects they show are not only easy, but very pretty too! The pictures and instructions are very user friendly, and easy to follow. And the items that they use are not hard to find. It's not like when you watch a home decorating show and you think," I love how that looks, but where do I find it!? " The book uses things like slate roof tiles and axe handles to create the most appealing things. I mean, when you see how they use and old shutter to make a cd rack you will be amazed! Salvage Style for Your Home is every frugal home decorator's dream book! It's a book of inspiration and I highly suggest you give it a read!
The perfect mix of beautiful photography & detailed info!
