9780224095969: Ordinary Made Extraordinary: 24 Things to Make Using Everyday Stuff

International designer, artist and blogger Pascal Anson shows us how everyday items, junk and interiors can be reinvented. He teaches readers to create a splendid chandelier with just a few rolls of Sellotape, cast a stunning planted pot worthy of any designer homeware store using a cheap bag of concrete mix and a recycled plastic food tub, and build a child’s dream treehouse with nothing more than everyday cling film. There are ideas for projects for everyone, from the four-minute makeover skinny jeans, to repairing and reinventing worn out trainers, to bigger projects such as the wood-clad car and the stylish hairy chair.

About the Author:

Pascal Anson is a designer, artist and blogger whose work focuses on finding new and extraordinary uses for the mundane. The smallest thing that Pascal has designed so far is an eggcup, the largest a fleet of Airbus aircraft. He has collaborated with a wide variety of brands and companies and exhibited his design pieces all over the world.

Review:

"Filled with inexpensive and relatively easy do-it-yourself design projects for the home. Step-by-step photos show you how to do everything from dipping vintage cutlery in paint and reupholstering an armchair in shoelaces to covering a wall in mirrors" Telegraph "True original Pascal Anson urges us, with winning wit and idiot-proof step-by-steps to turn 'dad' jeans, an ugly table, holey trainers, mismatched cutlery [...] into desirable stuff using the alchemy of imagination. His brief? Low skill levels and high concept" World of Interiors "A rather sweet, pretty eccentric look inside the mind of one inventive designer, busying himself with projects that sometimes have unexpectedly beautiful results" Design Week
