Book Details

When it comes to furniture, all too often we can feel stuck between buying pieces that are cheap and low-quality and those that are astronomically expensive and out of our price range. Micaela Sharp shows us that with a few skills, some tools and the desire to learn, we can actually forge a new, more sustainable path when it comes to furnishing our homes. With information on how to source second-hand furniture and find fabric inspiration you’ll be able to create more sustainable, and personal pieces. Along with oodles of inspiration, the book features core techniques, from stripping back and handling webbing, through to decorative skills such as adding piping or frills, which you can use and adapt to whatever style of furniture you have in your home. There are also four projects that you can make along with Micaela to really bring a sense of style to your home: a headboard, footstool, window-seat cushion and armchair. Be inspired to learn a new skill and give your furniture a new, beautiful lease of life.
