You have a problem. Your current home "décor" is ugly, shabby, and boring, but you can't afford lots of new stuff. Or maybe your house is filled with tired old junk that you just can't bear to throw away. Or maybe you bought all your furniture at a big box store, but it irritates you that it all looks like you bought it there.

You have a solution-or, rather, a whole houseful of solutions. In this newest Big-Ass Book, do-it-yourself guru Mark Montano presents 105 practical, simple, and decidedly unboring projects for every space in your home. Montano's wizardry-accomplished with masking tape, spray paint, and glue-transforms everything from accessories, to walls and windows, to lighting, to major pieces like headboards, tables, dressers, and chairs. (And there's even a chapter on turning the anonymous items you got at IKEA into one-of-a-kind treasures.)

This is a huge waste of time unless you think gluing crap to other crap makes good home decor. Honestly, at one point there is an "eagle lady statue" where they took the head off a lady statue and glued it to the body of a bird statue. That's the whole "craft." It actually gets worse from there. The author also makes an inaccurate/ridiculous reference to H.P. Lovecraft to really drive home just how off base he is with this book.
