Description
You can find just about any furnishing imaginable in the aisles of the home goods store - coffee tables, wine racks, chandeliers - with just a little assembly (and creativity) required. In Black & Decker Readymade Home Furniture, you will learn how to re-imagine the big-box building centre as a source for stylish, customized home furnishings that are inexpensive and easy to make yourself. Metal connectors, pipes and ductwork, rope, sheet goods, glass, and all varieties of hardware are just a few of the ingredients you can shop for to turn yourself into a furniture maker-without the need to buy a lot of woodworking tools and learn complicated joinery. Inside this book, you will find a wealth of insightful information on how to convert everyday building materials into fine furnishings, along with 24 projects, complete with instructions to get you started. Unique and custom styles and colors, durability (select the quality materials you want), low cost, and a sense of satisfaction are just a few of the benefits you will experience by doing your furniture shopping at your home center or hardware store. A few of the demonstration projects included in Black & Decker Readymade Home Furniture are: Shoe rack from concrete forming tubes; Copper pipe tubing pot rack Nuts-and-bolt candle holder; Door desk made with axe handle legs; Modern media center from angle iron and melamine board; Door handle coat rack; Ductwork coffee table; Bagged concrete planters; Faux rock and pump waterfall.
