This is not a very earth shattering book. It gives you some ideas on ways to creatively repurpose stuff you might ordinarily throw away or not realize they can still be used for *something*.

This is not to everyone's taste. There is almost a celebration of the ways in which you can repurpose stuff that is, to someone else's perspective, just total garbage. For example, the tea tin clock on the cover: nice repurposing. The smashed soda can repurposed as a clock: looks like garbage off the street turned into a clock.

I get the esthetic -- it's trash made into treasure, or at least functional commentary on our throwaway, disposable life style...

I just don't think I'd want to decorate my house that way.

If I had it to do all over again, I think I'd take this out of the library rather than buy it. (And I bought it used.)

I bought this book for a college course. That was a bad decision.

Don't bother with this book and many like them. All these ideas and many better ones can be found browsing Etsy, Pinterest, or Instructables. Check books on salvage design out of your library to get started. Make money by saving money first.

I love all books that have to do with crafting....this book gave me a lot of great ideas. I may not use what they did in the book, but I can re-create another design using my own materials.

THere are a number of projects in here that I am definitely going to try. Overall this book is good for giving my mind a gentle nudge in looking at some everyday objects with a different eye.

Okay, so for most things I am pretty open minded and I don't like giving negative reviews but this one is. Some of the things are interesting like the idea of using an old record sleeve for a clock or the nightstand that folds up to become a picture frame. But of the 50 projects here most of the other stuff is just dumb and ugly. There are directions for making a frame from foam packaging. And there are instructions for making a clock from a crushed can and there are several different tables that are just ugly. Like I said there are a few things that are cool, but like someone else said a lot of the stuff is not easily found and other stuff is just trash that I would never want hanging around my house. It's one thing if you want to use objects that you might find at a flea market or antique store, but it's another thing if you are actually using trash to decorate. I would suggest bypassing this for something else that contains instructions for things a little less "trashy" looking and a little more fun.

I just moved into a new home and this book gave me so many cool ideas for my new place!! I basically have all of the materials I need to make whatever I want and what I dont can easily be found at any yardsale :) Awesome craft book!! Artsy and retro.
This book was fun and helpful. If anything, it might get some people to think of what to do with found objects. On the other hand, many of the projects in this book would be rather difficult to do without purchasing anything. This would be a better book for someone who just keeps collecting junk and needs something to do with it. If you do not collect junk then you are probably out of luck with this book.
