By featuring more than sixty projects that embrace the popular eco-ethic, Emily Anderson takes the DIY genre to every room in the house. From detailed instructions on turning old sweaters into hand-knotted rugs to tips on assessing local thrift shops and estate sales, Anderson makes re-styling a home practical and fresh at a very low cost. Projects encourage first-time crafters and DIY pros alike to use repurposed items-old lamps, extra sheets, mismatched dishes-to create new decor. Turn old bed pillows into stylish floor cushions, teacups into candles (soy wax only, please ), and old fabric into festive holiday garlands.

Creative and resourceful domestic advice throughout inspires readers to shop local consignment stores, raid grandma's closet, and recycle a home's excess clutter through craigslist or garage sales. Eco-Chic Home proves that with a little ingenuity and thoughtful changes, everything old can be new again.
