Junk Beautiful - Sue Whitney & Ki Nassauer

As promised, a bit of a departure from the fiction front. For me, digging through the flea market back room, seeing what's on the garage sale table, perusing the auction sale listings, are FUN activities!

Sue Whitney and Ki Nassauer think so too. So much in fact that it's how they make their living - and very successfully. This is the second book they've written.

What they do is scour for items that no one else seems to want and then they re purpose them. It's an acquired taste and not for everyone, but their makeovers have a beautiful shabby chic look. Their inventiveness is amazing. While some ideas were really ' out there', others sparked a little light bulb. This was just a fun book to peruse. Included are some inside shots of projects from the book.
