Book Description

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 projectsincluding 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 jelly moulds 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.

About Ellie Laycock
Ellie Laycock trained as an artist and works as a London-based professional photographer for clients such as Giorgio Armani, Sony Ericsson and Casa Vogue Brasil. A love of innovative design, stylish interiors, and rummaging for vintage treasures led to the founding of her new company, Hunted and Stuffed (www.huntedandstuffed.com), which specializes in luxury homeware made from upcycled vintage materials. Her unique cushions were selected to appear in the first major upcycling exhibition in the UK at The Old Cinema, west London, and are stocked in independent boutiques and online stores. She recently won the Platinum Brand Amplifier award for female entrepreneurs and the Startup Britain 'PitchUp!' Competition which resulted in her upcycled original vintage cushions being stocked by a major department store.
