The Repair Shop: A Make Do and Mend Handbook [9781785944604]

(1 review) Write a Review

Which glue should you use to mend a cracked vase? How do you colour match the varnish when restoring your old desk? How can you fix a favourite armchair that's sagging, or unpick your child's beloved, tattered teddy bear?

We all have items in our homes that sit about in a state of disrepair while we mull over how to fix them but never actually get round to it.

Direct from the Repair Shop's 'Workshop of Dreams', this one-stop practical guide will help you repair and maintain those ageing treasures and heirlooms around your house, stashed in the attic, or gathering dust in the garage.

From furniture and toys to ceramics and clothing, the Repair Shop experts will give you their tips and advice on the art of restoring and conserving everyday items, so you can give new life to your most prized possessions.

With clear step-by-step instructions and simple illustrations, they will show you how even the most battered of your cherished belongings can still be your new favourite thing.
