Seventy-two step-by-step projects for modern do-it-yourself home and office design, by world-renowned designer Todd Oldham. Love the look of mid-century, modern, retro design, but don't feel like dropping two weeks' pay on an Eames chair? Todd Oldham shares his passion for mid-century modern homes with over 72 do-it-yourself projects for anyone who loves crafts and longs to add character to every corner of their home. Each project is charted through step-by-step photos and instructions until the fabulously mod end. Other projects include home-computer face-lifts, Xerox wallpaper, aluminium lighting fixtures, and cosy shoe-storage systems. In additional to Todd's brilliantly engineered projects, the book comes complete with a tutorial on modern home design in the form of sidebars and short essays throughout -everything from that now-famous Eames chair to the case-study houses of the 1950s. Handmade Modern promises to revolutionise the way the reader looks at his or her own home and capacity to beautify a space. Chic, accessible, and fun, this is the achievable new look of modern home design.… (more)

A lot of decent food for thought, although rather cheap and trashy when compared to upcycling DIY, since most of these projects still require the consumption of new projects. I also have to wonder how durable some of this stuff is...
I also thought the instructions were rather vague, especially when it came to explaining why things work/what specific materials you would need. I also thought the page layout was overly cluttered. ( )
