Ordinary Made Extraordinary, Paperback


This book provides 24 inspiring and achievable projects - with easy to follow step-by-step instructions - to transform the dull, the discarded and the down-at-heel into something really out of the ordinary.

International designer, artist and blogger, Pascal Anson shows us how everyday items, junk and interiors can be reinvented: create a splendid chandelier with just a few rolls of Sellotape.

Cast a stunning plant pot worthy of any designer homeware store using a cheap bag of concrete mix and a recycled plastic food tub.

Build a child's dream treehouse with nothing more than everyday cling film.

There are ideas for projects for everyone - from the four-minute makeover skinny jeans, to repairing and reinventing worn out trainers, to bigger projects such as the wood-clad car and the stylish hairy chair. "A resourceful attitude and way of working is key to me but so is fun, playfulness and sometimes magic." (Pascal Anson).
