For those of us who are too busy to spend a whole weekend preparing for a party or fixing up the living room, Bari Lynn offers this book full of time-saving projects.
In a few hours, you can transform an entire room--without breaking the bank. In less than the time it would take to shop in store after store for a housewarming gift, you can make a gift that is all the more meaningful because you made it with your own hands. Instead of spending a fortune on new table settings for a special dinner party, Bari shows you how to liven up your old china, glassware, and table linens for mere pennies.
Each project--from making a stitchless bed canopy to color-washing walls to making a mosaic serving tray using old, mismatched china--is fully illustrated with step-by-step color photographs and gorgeous pictures showing the finished product in Bari's or her friends' homes.
The twenty-five projects in Eclectic Living require only the most basic materials that you can find in crafts stores, hardware stores, or even at flea markets or in your attic. In the list of materials needed for each project, Bari indicates where you can buy them; she also provides a resource guide to suppliers, as well as a glossary of terms and tools used in the projects.
Bari firmly believes that home decorating, gift giving, and entertaining should not be difficult or expensive, nor should they be dull. That's why all of her projects are fun, simple, and dramatically effective as opportunities to express your own creativity and personal, eclectic taste--this is not department store style. It's yours.

You don't have to be a fine artist or as rich as Midas to create a stylish, personalized, luxurious-feeling home. Many of the projects and techniques described in this lavishly illustrated book will take the reader from a half hour to a maximum of three hours to transform dull into dramatic and create stunning visual affects, whimsical touches, and infusions of color and texture. Lynn does not promote a particular style or taste, but rather shows the reader how to develop individual style and express it in doable ways without breaking the bank. Also covered are cosmetic fixes and quick-and-easy decorating tricks, party planning, and homemade gifts that are simple to make but elegant and memorable to give. The simplicity and modest cost of all the projects detailed by Lynn are sure to inspire the reader to begin the transformation of home into "home sweet home." --Mark A. HettsAbout the Author:
