These books provide a multitude of projects to transform items found in salvage yards, thrift stores, flea markets, and yard sales into beautiful decorative accessories. In Junk Chic, Elliot uses her own home as an example of what can be done with cheap finds, and the transformation is quite remarkable and innovative. Powell focuses on how to incorporate flea market finds into decorating schemes, illustrating her suggestions with color photographs and interspersing projects throughout. Rhatigan discusses items found in architectural salvage yards where pieces of houses wind up before demolition. His projects range from simple (transforming a metal porch support into a corner shelf) to more complex (building a blanket chest from salvaged doors), and safety tips on working with metal, glass, and wood are provided. Though for each book, too few illustrations are provided with the well-written directions, skilled crafters will still find the projects here useful. Recommended for public libraries where there is an interest.
