Remake restyle reuse : easy ways to transform everyday basics into inspired desi
Lucano, Sonia

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

Parisian designer Lucano gives crafters over 40 options for tasteful, contemporary updates to everyday items in this easy-to-reproduce collection. After a quick overview of basic techniques such as embroidery, dyeing and engraving, Lucano offers a number of projects for each, ranging from engraved wine glasses and vases to embroidered sheets and artwork. Emphasizing a minimalist approach, Lucano adds simple designs and/or phrases to modify existing materials, be it a curtain, carafe, plate or clay pot. All DIYers need to replicate her creations is access to a copier to make life-size reproductions of the patterns and images. The stark black and white style of her collection will not appeal to everyone, but those with an eye for the contemporary will appreciate her style as well as the cohesiveness of the collection.

From Library Journal:

Designer Lucano offers over 40 projects for adorning glass, ceramics, linens, and small furniture pieces for do-it-yourselfers. The written instructions of such techniques as embroidery and stenciling could be more detailed and would be more helpful if they appeared with the photograph of the finished piece rather than grouped following the photographs. Recommended for large public libraries where there is a continued interest in craft projects. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
