* Strong green message brings a twist to the DIY genre
* Offers ways to enhance personal style at home
* Perfect for the "recessionista" or "economista" in every family!
* Printed on 100% recycled paper with soy inks

By featuring more than sixty projects that embrace the popular eco-ethic, Emily Anderson takes the DIY genre to every room in the house. From detailed instructions on turning old sweaters into hand-knotted rugs to tips on assessing local thrift shops and estate sales, Anderson makes re-styling a home practical and fresh at a very low cost. Projects encourage first-time crafters and DIY pros alike to use repurposed items-old lamps, extra sheets, mismatched dishes-to create new décor.Turn old bed pillows into stylish floor cushions, teacups into candles (soy wax only, please!), and old fabric into festive holiday garlands.

Creative and resourceful domestic advice throughout inspires readers to shop local consignment stores, raid grandma's closet, and recycle a home's excess clutter through craigslist or garage sales. Eco-Chic Home proves that with a little ingenuity and thoughtful changes, everything old can be new again.

I was expecting a little more from this book. Some ideas were interersting, but there is a lot that I would never replicate.

This was just more of the same, not very original projects.

Not really anything new and creative in this book. I was hoping for something more refreshing.

Fun to read, but buying less clutter to start with will save you time and energy, and save the environment, too.
