My Review: Exactly like the title says, "Real-Life decor."  This book has over 100 thrifty projects & ideas. All the projects have clearly written instructions, materials list and a color photo. The book is divided into 7 chapters that cover the following:

Furniture Fix-ups
Soft Touches
Surface treatments
Stylish Storage
Artful Collections
Easy Accents
Nature Arts

Here are some of my favorite projects:
