Forget boring beige sofas and anaemic pine coffee tables. This book shows readers how to produce faboulous signature pieces for every room, from vintage scarf cushions and fun aprons for playing hostess, to personalized decoupage tables and polka-dot lamps. Readers can make most of the projects from things they already own--placemats made from old magazine covers, for instance.Through a range of chic, fun, wild and witty projects House Proud helps readers find their style and use it to turn their living space into a dream space. A new take on craft for the stylish, thrifty and those keen to recycle rather than buy new.
