I am delighted to be closing the blog book tour for Cico Books, reviewing the brilliant book ‘Furniture Hacks’ by Hester Van Overbeek. It is well documented on this blog, that our home is filled with furniture that I’ve painted, reused and re-purposed. Dan has made shelves, peg rails and tables out of off cuts of wood. With a little budget and a slice of imagination anything can be achieved.
Hester has written a brilliant guide to ‘hacking’ everyday furniture to reflect your own personality. 35 fantastic tutorials to show you have to update your home accessories, soft furnishings and wooden furniture with step by step photos to guide you through the processes.
I particularly love the dip-dye curtains and have thought of doing something similar in my lounge, a simple shibori technique or ombre.
Always fancied a four poster bed? Well, discover how to turn your current bed into that four poster luxury… using only a few pieces of wood! Love this idea.
Hester’s philosophy is that you don’t need much money or many DIY skills to make your house into a cosy, stylish home. With the right inspiration, you can create something beautiful! Totally agree with this.
