Get Crafty

By Tiffany Yannetta, March 26th, 2010

Anyone who’s ever crammed all of their belongings into just about any apartment in Manhattan understands the importance of making the most of the space that you’ve got. For those of us who might need a bit of help, Mark Montano has you covered with his Big Ass Book of Home Décor, hitting coffee tables everywhere April 1st.

As a follow up to his Big Ass Book of Crafts—which was crammed with recipes on how to customize everything from your iPod case to your undies—the Big Ass Book of Home Décor will give you some pointers on how to take your spring cleaning a bit further this year. With “Incredible Ikea Ideas,” a chapter based solely on how to revamp all of that Ikea furniture you’ve stockpiled, to projects like “Must Have Matting” and “Chinese Mat-Covered Table,” Montano has all sorts of odds and ends instructions on how to make your home a little more kitschy—in a good way, that is.
