Inspiring and achievable projects, with easy to follow step-by-step instructions, to transform the dull, the discarded and the down-at-heel into something really out of the ordinary

International designer, artist and blogger Pascal Anson shows us how everyday items, junk and interiors can be reinvented. He teaches readers to create a splendid chandelier with just a few rolls of Sellotape, cast a stunning planted pot worthy of any designer homeware store using a cheap bag of concrete mix and a recycled plastic food tub, and build a child's dream treehouse with nothing more than everyday cling film. There are ideas for projects for everyone, from the four-minute makeover skinny jeans, to repairing and reinventing worn out trainers, to bigger projects such as the wood-clad car and the stylish hairy chair.
