This review is from: Jazz Up Your Junk with Linda Barker: Fabulous Furniture Makeovers from the Star of BBC's "Changing Rooms" (Hardcover)
Barker, known for her quirky use of often frankly odd materials in telly's 'Changing Rooms', offers a more down-to-earth version of her design ideas. The book provides clear instructions for remodelling commonly available old furniture. While she is perhaps rather too keen to paint over potentially stylish early 20th-c pieces rather than trying to restore the wood, she does succeed at brightening up her junk-shop finds for a variety of uses around the home. Some of the best projects involve simple upholstery methods and changing the doors on wardrobes and cabinets. The clarity and accessibility of her methods should inspire confidence in even the most novice of DIYers.

This book is brilliant. Shows you how to see past the Junk and what you can achieve. You don't have to copy the book, Linda Barker actually gets your design juices flowing (we'll she did mine) with the new paints on the market you can just go for it. Well impressed.

It was useful but a bit dated, still though the old tricks and tips never really go out of fashion
