Have a bunch of mason jars in your cupboard but not sure what to do with them? Have some fruit crates laying around? Upcycle! is a fun, contemporary project book that will show you how to take a range of common objects, many available cheap or free, and craft them into stylish home furnishings and décor.
The projects are practical and attractive, with full-colour photography and easy-to-follow instructions. Turn an old wooden pallet into a stylish coffee table or a charming, rustic headboard, a leftover jam jar into an accent light or a hanging plant holder, and dozens more simple home crafts. The lovely farmhouse chic aesthetic brings a rustic yet modern flare to any home. Each project has a complete list of tools and materials needed, and handy illustrations that even the beginner to DIY projects can follow with ease.
The book focuses on 8 everyday items you may find at a flea market or even freeperhaps in your own home, and shows how each can yield a wide range of projects. A bonus section includes ideas for stencils to trace, or be inspired by to create your own.
