When it comes to creating a home, "Thrifty Chic" shows you how to reuse and restore, revive and revamp, and recycle and reclaim, in order to create a stylish yet individual home without spending a small fortune. Room by room, the book explains how to give old furniture a new lease of life and how to bring a vintage charm to a room through an inspired use of fabrics and paints. There are ideas for window dressings and bed and table linens, projects for jazzing up old wooden furniture, and suggestions for pulling together mismatched items into cohesive schemes. The all-important finishing touches--display, china and ceramics, glassware, paintings and frames, fabrics and trims--are covered in detail, and you can learn how to create a variety of stylish accessories for your home. Get insiders' tips on what to look for at antique markets and in thrift stores, and how to care for and restore your bargain purchases. Whether you are creating your first home on a tight budget, or wanting to give your existing home a new look, "Thrifty Chic" contains a treasure trove of irresistible ideas for interiors.*Thrift is the new "spend", and reusing and recycling rather than throwing away are now seen as an essential part of modern living.*Learn how to create a stylish and comfortable home without spending a small fortune.*Stunning photography by Simon Brown.
