So the dresser doesn't match the nightstand, the four kitchen chairs are from four different sets, and the bracelet is a thrift store special. Well, it doesn't mean you can't have styleand how! Thanks toRetro Revamp's chic and imaginative ideas, you can turn anything so-so into so, SO fabulous. Filled with full-color photographs, and decorated throughout with sassy collage-art and illustrations, this book is a treasure in itself. The projects inside range from necklaces to nightlights and are made from a variety of materials that are readily accessible at your drugstore, nearest vintage shop, or neighborhood sidewalk sale. For an evening on the town, don't be caught without Holly Golightly's Dream Bag fashioned from ribbon scraps and a made-in-a-minute Chopstick-do hair accessory to keep your tresses intact. Indoors, a nostalgic Mystery Date End Table and some Ugly Chair First Aid will have you entertaining with elan. And the Car Carma Dashboard Shrine and Mr. Potato Head Beach Bag will help you hit the road in style. You don't have to know how to knit and you don't have to be a kooky bottlecap collector. All you need is some extra junk you don't know what to do with, an adventurous spirit, and one copy of Retro Revamp.
