School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-A creative, thematic approach to decorating using basic craft techniques and materials. The book offers projects that are appropriate for preadolescents and young teens who want to change the decor of their rooms without extensive remodeling. The author suggests unique screens; shelving; storage solutions; and displays using contrasting colors, textures, and unexpected everyday objects. Readers are instructed on the need for a plan of action and there is a section on "Decorating Basics" that covers painting, varnishing, cutting, and materials. "Sorting Your Stuff" offers numerous ideas for organizing possessions from clothing to collections. Many decorative ideas are given to make the rooms reflect the tastes and personalities of their occupants. Both genders are represented in the projects and collections shown. The title, the cover, and the brightly colored photography will attract youngsters. A welcome addition to craft sections.-Elizabeth Stumpf, Clearfield Middle School, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
