Every avid bargain hunter knows there is no greater satisfaction than turning forgotten treasures into gems once again. In Making Rustic Originals Abby Ruoff, author of the Making Twig Furniture series, shows how to make over 62 unique pieces out of flea market finds. The emphasis is on using classic rustic elements, such as bark and twigs, to give quirky character and charm to everything from old lamps to beds. This book covers a comprehensive set of folk art and faux finishing techniques to complement your rustic revisions. Making Rustic Originals is an indispensable source book for the serious (and not so serious) craftsperson and yard sale aficionado.
