I like it! I'm probably not realistically going to make anything out of it myself...but whereas when I say that about a craft book, I'm normally consigning it to charity shop...this is REALLY unusual, effective and funky. If I was a bit younger, I think I'd have a go at some of projects. Definitely worth a read!! ( )

Lots of interesting, appealing projects, mainly things to use around the home. I love the recycled magazine trash can, which I'm hoping to make when I get a burst of energy. His recommendation for a brand of spray paint (Krylon H2O) was spot on. ( )

This book is as awesome and as edgy as it’s name! Full of fun, inexpensive, avant-garde arts and crafts, most are incredibly functional and easy-to-make.

My favorite projects are the ones that incorporate old, unwanted books for repurposing, such as framed silhouettes (p 9), a laminated chandelier (p. 72), decoupage plates (p.134), placemats (p. 215) and stitched note cards and envelopes (p. 306).

Mr. Montano even shows, with step-by-step instructions, how to make your own beautiful, personalized bound journal/notebook (p. 53).

Using this book as inspiration, I made a recycled rolled-book basket (p. 281) that I donated to my local library for their “monthly auction” -- it’s a fundraiser to help pay for a new, larger location and I thought that it would be a creative way to show my support. ( )
