52 Weekend Decorating Projects: A Do-it-yourself Guide to Adding Style to Your Home
Filipacchi Publishing, 2005 - House & Home - 112 pages
This comprehensive collection offers a wealth of fast, fun home decorating ideas that can be accomplished in two days or less on a budget. With step-by-step instructions and 250 photos and illustrations, the book guides readers through projects that can increase the convenience, beauty, and value of a home. Both seasoned remodelers and inspired novices learn how to revamp a wall or find a new solution for a simple window treatment, how to decorate a lamp or skirt an ottoman, or even double storage space with clever wall-mounted racks. Here are clear, concise plans for everything from bordered draperies and piped Roman shades to stenciled floor cloths and glazed walls to refurbished bar stools and crackle-finished sideboards. With both substantial projects like slipcovered headboards, and super-easy accents such as ribbon-trimmed lampshades, 52 Weekend Decorating Projects shows readers how to transform every room in the home without a decorator and on a budget.
