Photographs and text show budget-conscious readers how to transform a room into a stylish and functional space without spending an excessive amount of money.

Simon and Schuster
Room by room, Thrifty Chic explains how to give old furniture a new lease of life and how to bring vintage charm to a room through an inspired use of fabrics and paints. There are ideas for window dressings as well as bed and table linens. There are projects for jazzing up old wooden furniture for both house and garden, and suggestions for pulling together mismatched items into cohesive schemes. The all-important finishing touches – display, china and ceramics, glassware, paintings and frames, fabrics and trims – are covered in detail, and you can learn how to create a variety of stylish accessories for your home. Get insider tips on what to look for at antique markets and in charity shops, and how to care for and restore your bargain purchases. Whether you are creating your first home on a tight budget, or wanting to give your existing home a new look, Thrifty Chic contains a treasure trove of irresistible ideas.
