All the cheesecloth & macrame you can eat

I got this 70stastic book for £1 from a charity shop, mainly because of the pictures. The textual parts are worthy and Blue Peter-ish, with lots of making things out of tea chests and copydex glue (why doesn't tea tend to come in chests these days?), guides to home tie-dying, and sentences like "and kitchen foil gives a touch of glamour".

I'm not sure if you'll regard this as inspirational, or more as a sort of cautionary tale in interior photos, but anyway, here it is...

The text suggests collecting carpet samples to create a patchwork effect.

Sorry about the slightly grainy scans. The pictures are quite small in the book, and not the best quality printing, but I've tried to do the best scans I can.

This one is made out of wallpaper samples and a cupboard from a skip

Check out Mr Suave and his open-necked shirt and fancy stereo. The text part of the book vaguely explains just how this music student managed to cram a piano, hammond organ, recording equipment and a bed and sink into one room.

Grainy view of the piano under the bed. (Will I ever have cause to type that sentence again?)

A studio photo? You don't say?

The glamourous bacofoil corner. I wonder if anything in here is also made of washing up liquid bottles or sticky backed plastic?
