Summary

The task of transforming a house (or apartment) into a home can be daunting. This book makes that process simple and fun. Using 350 color step-by-step photographs and easy-to-follow instructions, A Comfortable Home shows crafters at all skill levels how to change their environment from gauche to gracious - and even gorgeous. Dozens of functional and decorative projects incorporate a wide range of materials and activities within most people's grasp - paper, stamps, stencils, beading, mosaics, painting, and sewing for transforming everything from windows, linens, and upholstery to lighting, furniture, and storage, indoors and out. Advice on methods and techniques makes simple work of customizing projects to suit any style and add a personal touch. A section on holiday decorating rounds out all of the cozy touches to make any environment beautiful.
