Synopsis

'Filled with inexpensive and relatively easy do-it-yourself design projects for the home. Step-by-step photos show you how to do everything from dipping vintage cutlery in paint and reupholstering an armchair in shoelaces to covering a wall in mirrors' - Telegraph

'True original Pascal Anson urges us, with winning wit and idiot-proof step-by-steps to turn ''dad'' jeans, an ugly table, holey trainers, mismatched cutlery [...] into desirable stuff using the alchemy of imagination. His brief? Low skill levels and high concept' - World of Interiors

In Ordinary Made Extraordinary designer, artist and maverick-maker Pascal Anson shows how easy it is to transform everyday items into extraordinary statement pieces.

Make ordinary a thing of the past with 24 inspiring and achievable projects including:
- Create a chandelier with just a few rolls of Sellotape.
- Cast a stunning concrete plant pot.
- Build a child's treehouse with cling film.

There are ideas for projects for everyone - from repairing and reinventing worn out trainers, to bigger projects such as the wood-clad car and the stylish hairy chair.
