Funky-fabulous DYI

The Big-Ass Book of Home Decor: More than 100 Inventive Projects for Cool Homes like Yours by Mark Montano is a treasure trove of fashionable, fun, and funky do-it yourself decoration projects. Montano has easy decorating projects to suit all decors as well as fabulous tips and tricks to disguise tacky hand-me-downs or generic big box buys. Most can be done for a few dollars in an afternoon or a weekend at most. His style has a definite edge, but never looks too crafty.

Mark Montano is a designer and well-known host. He has been on TLC’s While You Were Out and 10 Years Younger, We’s She’s Moving In, and Style Network’s My Celebrity Home. He is the author of CosmoGIRL Cool Room, The Big-Ass Book of Crafts, Super Suite, and Dollar Store Décor. Montano is based in Los Angeles and New York.
The Big-Ass Book of Home Decor is a great Mother’s Day gift for crafty moms with a chic side. Get it for yourself, if you have been dying to give your place a makeover, but have the recessionista blues.
