SOME OF US HAVE ALWAYS SUSPECTED that decor treasure lay hidden in the aisles of our local home-supply store, but in Home from the Hardware Store, (Rodale 2010), Stephen Antonson and Kathleen Hackett uncover a mother lode of unabashed (and easy-to-duplicate!) decorative style. Under the pair's tutelage even the severely unhandy can transform hinged doors into a stunning folding screen, galvanized elbows into a sleekly UFO-esque coffee table, frames for casting walkway pavers into a lacy room divider, screw posts into cufflinks, and on and on. Lovely and straightforward photos by Leslie Unruh give the completed projects their due and support uncomplicated instructions. To follow? Two of our favorite projects from the book a lamp fashioned from drain grates and faux boiserie created with stock molding.
