Library Journal Review

Whitney and Nassauer (also coauthors of Decorating Junk Market Style) specialize in repurposing, remodeling, or reusing items found at flea markets, salvage yards, and even dumpsters for home decor. Here they work with nine different home owners to transform a room using their reworked junk finds, e.g., hand drills used as coat hooks and baguette bakers used as blinds. Written instructions describe how to re-create the items shown. Recommended for public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
