To accompany Rachel Carley's Cabin Fever: Rustic Styles Comes Home (LJ 1/99) and Ralph Kylloe's Rustic Style (LJ 1/99), here is a how-to book full of projects that enable readers to create this style themselves. Ruoff describes a variety of projects that transform inexpensive silverware, furniture, frames, lamps, and the like into rustic-style decorative pieces. The techniques used range from sewing to furniture-making, with well-written instructions that would have been better had more illustrations been provided. A good addition where this style is popular.
