Furniture Hacks by Hester Van Overbeek

I do love starting the week with a good book and I'm really happy to be sharing this inspiring and creative book with you today. "Furniture Hacks" by Hester Van Overbeek is a brilliant collection of ideas to help you transform furniture and items in your home. 

Furniture Hacks by Hester Van Overbeek

The book is divided into five chapters, with ideas for the Living Room, Kitchen & Dining Room, Bedroom, Home Office and Outdoor Space. What I really love about this book is that it covers a great range of projects from a fairly simple project of using washi tape to update a chest of drawers to a more complicated one showing you how to make window shutters. And even a table made out of all those magazines that you can't possibly throw away! 

I love this idea for updating your cutlery with nail varnish!

And after spending the weekend in the garden I really like the Outdoors chapter with ideas for pretty, mismatched pillow covers, an apple crate table and a fantastic shower curtain canopy!

We are moving house this month (yes, again...no, not our choice...but that's for another blog post!) and I am really looking forward to trying some of these projects soon. Watch this space! 

At the end of the book there is great section on Tools & Techniques, so you don't need to feel daunted by any of the more advanced projects. It really has made me excited about making stuff for my home. Thank you Hester. xo
