The Best of Painted Furniture
While the art of painted furniture can be traced back to the Egyptians, the French were first in the West to develop a method for glazing and coloring furniture, objects, and paneling. In parallel movements across Europe, craftsmen adapted ideas and techniques. Various chapters discuss these embellishments and treatments from high art elegance to folk art simplicity, and there is a short chapter on the care of painted furniture. It is an inspirational idea book, and is invaluable when trying to capture the feel of a certain era. Famous decorative paint artists from each coutry are discussed and featured, and the evolution of certain styles of painting, for instance chinoiserie, are examined. Ideas from the past four centuries unfold in a unique and creative way. The author shows how the painted furniture styles of past centuries blend into modern settings, also examines painted metal, papier-mache furniture, as well as the care of painted furniture.

ReadyMade: How to Make [Almost] Everything: A Do-It-Yourself Primer
A partly serious, partly humorous look at materials we usually discard, the work provides step-by-step instructions on how to transform paper, plastic, metal, wood, concrete and fabric into such unlikely (and undesirable) household items as a chopstick clock or a colander light sconce. Berger and Hawthorne (the editor-in-chief and publisher, respectively, of ReadyMade magazine) also include acknowledged failures, such as the water bottle lounge chair, too fragile and noisy to sit on. Each section begins with a history of the "raw" material, designed to make readers more aware of the environment and the uses of these materials. In addition to proposing new uses for Fed Ex boxes (a CD rack) and plastic detergent containers (an "ultraclean coatrack"), the authors also offer how-to advice, both silly (how to write a love note) and useful (how to self-publish). The playfulness extends to noncraft instruction on what to do with plastic ("how to start a business on credit cards") and glass ("how to break through your own glass ceiling"). Inspired by Marcel Duchamp, who coined the term "readymade," the authors are interested in encouraging creative thinking as much as, if not more than, making re-purposed objects.
