2.0 out of 5 stars Poor
Out dated and not the best quality pictures. Money better spent on magazines. Doesn't give an overall picture of what you want to achieve

I bought an old welsh dresser for 5.00 at a boot sale, an absolute wreck, didn't know where to start, contemplated using it as firewood, saw 'Just Junk' on Amazon,bought it, followed the simple techniques which even I could understand, two weeks later sold the finished 'shabby chic' dresser on Ebay for 120.00. not bad for a first attempt. Now spending my weekends hunting down potential gems. Highly recommend this great little book, Linda Barker, I love you.

Albeit this is an old publication and some paints and products have been updated in the intervening period it provides useful guidance and ideas. Whilst the decorative tastes may have changed a bit the techniques and concepts run true.

This review is from: Just Junk : " New Looks For Old Furniture " : (Hardcover)
In this book Linda shows how delicate and beautiful creativity can be. With easy-to-follow techniques she she gives us valuable insights about re-using old things, bringing them back to life and giving us that sense of achievement. This is one of my favourite books of the kind.

This review is from: Just Junk : " New Looks For Old Furniture " : (Hardcover)
I already had this book and bought this for my sister. There are some really great ideas with clear consise instructions. Some projects are even easier than the book says as there are new products on the market which save time but it's a great source of inspiration.
