Weekend Furniture Facelifts 70 Great Ways to Update Your Furnishings by Helen Carey

Everyone gets the urge to redecorate--but often there's little money or time to spare. Now there's a way to renovate furnishings quickly, even on the tightest budget. More than 20 step-by-step projects--from pretty pastel chairs and divine lampshades to sparkling bathroom storage and an instant home office--are explained and illustrated with detailed photographs. A glass tabletop becomes a focal point with the help of a stenciled floral design. A bed radiates luxury with the addition of a fabric-covered headboard. Incredible color and texture effects are achieved using the latest paint and craft products. And each one of the eye-catching projects can be completed in a weekend or less.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

Lovereading does a stella job in promoting both new and established authors.

Iris Clements

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.
