Home – Building with Secondhand Stuff

Copy sent by Quarto for feature

Building with Secondhand Stuff, 2nd Edition:

How to Reclaim, Repurpose, Re-use & Upcycle Salvaged & Leftover Materials

We are having a home built as I write this and are about 2 weeks from move in. I have so many visions of wood and reclaimed decor projects for the home, inside and out. When I saw this book and it’s cover I knew it was a book I needed to have for 2 reasons. I wanted to read some tips and get some questions answered on some projects I have in mind and I wanted a fun coffee table book for the living room and it will be on a wood coffee table in a basket. I loved the cover and colors.

This is the second edition, updated by Author Chris Peterson.

There are many chapters that cover topics from stained glass, metals and all wood. I have already become inspired for a few metal projects I never would have thought of before browsing this book.

Do you know a DIY’er? This would make a fantastic gift full of resources from how-to, safety and buying guides. It is available at many book stores including Amazon and published by Quarto Knows Books. Head over to see all of the Quarto Knows Summer Titles and you can save with promo code: SUMMERFUN!
