You'll pry my books off my cold, dead body. By the time you shift them all I'll be flat and dessicated.

Home from the Hardware Store: Transform Everyday Materials into Fabulous Home Furnishings - Kathleen Hackett, Stephen Antonson, Lesley Unruh Nice short read to get some preliminary ideas about making useful furniture and decor items from hardware supplies. The authors' taste is very much in evidence, and I happen to like their sort of funky, makeshift style. If you prefer substantial antique pieces or like everything to match, this book is not for you.

Anyone want to make me a chandelier out of balling wire?
