Thirty-two-year-old Danielle Proud grew up in the 1970s with a mum who was obsessed with craft. She passed on her passion to her daughter, who now regularly writes craft columns for the Guardian and Observer . Danielle has supplied Topshop with thousands of craft packs, as well as carrying out demonstrations in-store. She is currently in negotiations for a major primetime TV series. House Proud shows you how to get designer style for your home on a shoestring budget, whilst doing your bit for the environment along the way. As Danielle says, 'This book will be hip craft for the 21st century - shunning Ikea and the beige sofa land that is today's interior style and using a 1970s how-to ethos to make seriously cool furniture yourself. It's environmentally friendly and means that instead of everyone buying identikit high street chairs and coffee tables they'll start putting personality into their homes - just like when choosing an outfit to wear in the morning.' House Proud is a funky, stylish and contemporary take on craft for your home.

Danielle Proud, the British queen of cheap-chic is the ultimate recycler, reclaiming forgotten treasures with tried and true crafting skills. With great detail and lots of pictures she demonstrates each step in a multitude of projects: turning a threadbare 1960's dress into oven mitts, past issues of Vogue magazine covers into placemats, vintage plates into an attractive roller blind (yep, roller blind), a boring IKEA-like dresser into a one-of-a-kind objet d'art, and a shark into a door-stop (yep, a shark)...
