Once again, Kerry Trout displays her work with beautiful photography and easy-to-follow instructions. I'm ready to hit the flea markets and start painting!!!
I bought this book knowing in the back of my mind that I'd probably read it and never actually finish one of the projects. Then the rustic fruit box labels caught my eye. I had an ugly huge box of plastic wrap sitting out in the kitchen because I use it constantly. Well, to make a short story long, I took that carton, primed it, chose one of the label designs and followed all the directions, which are very precise, just what I need. When I was almost finished, I looked at that box and confidently put a few extra peaches on the sides of the box, thinking to myself, "This really looks great. I'm proud of it." (Because the box could possibly come in contact with food, I finished it with a couple of coats of pure shellac.)
This book is full of great ideas to re-purpose flea market finds. I live in central Florida and really don't have a need for a heater, but this book has inspired me to start searching for an old kerosene heater so I can paint it similar to the one in the book.
I bought this book because of the old milk can on the cover; I fell in love with the old kerosene heater instead. I went on a massive search to find a kersoene heater and once I found one, I had it cleaned and painted in one weekend. This book has great ideas and easy to follow instructions. I will definitely use this book again.

I do a lot of flea markets and antique places and the book has helped me keep a sharp eye out for items.
Great book arrived quickly and was in great shape. Very Happy!
Product was exactly as described and in excellent condition.
