The Salvage Studio includes 35 sustainable and cost-effective do-it-yourself projects to create a warm and comforting home. Stunning photos provide inspiration on every page. Included are tips for recycling, reusing and rescuing everything from tables and chairs to knobs, silverware, bottle caps and playing cards.With the increasing popularity of eco-lifestyles, people are hungry for ideas to live more easily with the earth. Using "reduce, reuse, and recycle" as their mantra, the Salvage Studio ladies show how simple it is to have a green and comfortable daily life. The ideas and projects presented in their book use the most common of materials, items that people often throw away: tarnished silver plate, chipped china, Junior's old baby crib, a broken lamp, unread books and more.The craft projects range from birdbaths and garden trellises to chandeliers, pillows, buffet servers, and jewelry, and suit a variety of decorating styles from modern to classic, rustic to romantic. With a fresh eye, a bit of glue, and a sturdy power drill, the Salvage Studio trio shows that everyone has the capacity to be creative--they just need a nudge to get going. Their motto is, "If we can do it, you can do it." Additional smaller projects and advice on organizing and reducing excess are sprinkled throughout.
