"What's old is new again" is the theme of this lush, inspiring, hands-on guide. Salvage Style for Outdoor Living celebrates the beauty of everyday objects and shows you how to uncover treasures in antique shops, junkyards, and flea markets. You'll learn the ins and outs of transforming antique trinkets, discarded materials, and architectural details into stylish patio and garden furniture and accessories.
From turning scaffolding into a picnic bench and wooden ladders into ladderback patio chairs, to making old slate into a tabletop and discarded windows into outdoor lighting, these 30 inspirational projects are proof that you can reuse and recycle without turning your back on style and sophistication. You'll find dozens of inspirational ideas and tips that will make you see objects that others have discarded in a new light.
Moira and Nicholas Hankinson are pioneers of reclamation, and they hope that you can discover, as they have, the pleasure in taking an object that has already had one life and turning it into something new, beautiful, and original. Moira and Nicholas Hankinson left London behind and with it their careers in design and the art world. The call of the country took them to rural Somerset, England, where they set up their company, Somerset Creative Products, to produce an internationally acclaimed line of furniture and accessories for the house and garden. Passionate about their subject, they are well known as pioneers of reclamation, using salvaged wood, glass, and metal in many of their creations. Two of their previous homes, both restored using rescued materials wherever possible, have been featured in decorating magazines. They are also the authors of Garden Ornaments and Salvage Style in Your Home and have appeared on television to share their remarkable design ideas.
