Danny continues to inspire me with his unbridled creativity and ability to truly upcycle, turning lowly stuff into truly fun and attractive creations. The difference is that Danny has a great eye and knows that you can infuse "stuff" with spirit if you think of it as a heartwarming and personal project, not just a chance to cover something up and hide it.
Danny's new book is a straight ahead tour of almost 100 projects, which is a ton, and there's something here for everyone to DO in the next few months as the holidays approach and we get into fall nesting. My favorites? The Wine Cork Bathmat (p. 36) and Paint Stirrer Lanterns (p. 122).
