9781909342477: Made By Yourself: 100% Handmade Designer DIY Projects for the Home, from Furniture to Accessories

DIY is all the rage and handmade objects guarantee individuality and sustainability - and for this reason they have once more become highly sought-after. Made by Yourself's ideas for furniture and small decorative crafts are 100% individual, while the step-by-step instructions, sketches, and patterns guarantee that they are surprisingly easy and fun to make. The many different kinds of materials - stone, wood, paper/cardboard, glass/porcelain, metal, plastic, textiles and leather - combined with the imaginative ways they fit into their environment make this both a practical and atmospheric book filled with sophisticated and creative ideas.

About the Author:

Peter Fehrentz  has a degree in metal design, and has worked since 1993 as a freelance stylist, set and product designer, and photographer for German and international magazines as well as clients in the fields of advertising and the furniture industry.

Review:

"German stylist, designer, photographer, and debut author Fehrentz shares his do-it-≠yourself designs in this book. The 48 projects are grouped into chapters by the materials used, including glass, ceramics, wood, leather, paper, fabric, metal, stone, and plastic, and portray a more modern style than typically found in craft books, which tend to show a more country-cottage look. Also included are decorative accessories, such as leather flowers, and furniture such as a patchwork-upholstered chair. Each project is rated by skill level and cost and lists the time required, a helpful detail to consider. Although there are step-by-step instructions, inexperienced crafters might find them lacking, especially for the more challenging plans. ≠VERDICT Skilled ≠do-≠it-yourselfers will find plenty of exciting design ideas here, many of which Fehrentz has used to decorate his own apartment." - Library Journal



"Since spring is college graduation season with wedding season is just around the corner, Made By Yourself is a great gift to start your favorite millennial on the path to a beautiful home." - Decor Girl Blog



"Internationally renowned German Stylist Peter Fehrentz has written the perfect guide to an affordable, satisfying and chic little DIY project book: Made by Yourself ‚?? 5 stars" - Examiner.com



"The projects range from furniture to accessories and each sparks a huge rush of inspiration. Most of the projects are super easy and the worst DIY challenged person can do them. A few are a bit more complicated, but with some patience, and a little effort are easily completed‚?Ņ I love that Peter has captured so many wonderful projects and makes them look so easy. I have been inspired to try a few of these as well as put my own twist on a few of the projects." - Cultured Civility



"a quirky and imaginative DIY guide, broken down into different chapters, based on the materials you will need -glass, leather, metal... Even though I'm more of a "Do It Somebody Else" kind of girl, I did enjoy this fun little read and I think you will too." - The Zhush
