"[Powell's] creations are wonderfully whimsical and imaginative."--Booklist "Offers inspiration in the form of stunning photography and helpful how-to hints...[it] puts a creative spin on tattered finds."--Romantic Homes "Recommended for public libraries."--Library Journal "This book provides hundreds of examples...plus artful arrangements."--Better Homes & Gardens

Enjoy your treasured collections, favorite items, and must-have finds with the help of enchanting full-color photographs, creative tips, display ideas, and plenty of projects. Create crackle and distressed finishes to "age" furniture. Use an old chair as a display stand for a special object. Artfully arrange a collection of interesting bottles. Wrap a small gift in a lovely vintage handkerchief. Recycle broken pieces of treasured china into a china-shard mosaic table. Embellish a basket to make an eye-catching centerpiece, or update a lamp with a fabric cover. An empty portrait frame can become a unique corkboard, and an old fireplace screen gets a new life with a stenciled design. You'll love decorating your home with these inexpensive, easy, and fun schemes and suggestions!
