Publisher Comments:

Bring old furniture to life or transform an inexpensive, unfinished piece into the stunning focal point of a room.

Synopsis:

Give old furniture new life or transform an inexpensive, unfinished piece into the stunning focal point of a room. Use the decorative painting techniques of sponge painting, wood graining, faux inlay, lacquer, stenciling, combing, and crackling. Try sand masking, vinegar painting, rubber-stamped images, marble and stone finishes, and distressed effects. Scaled patterns accompany 27 fantastic projects, including an exotic-looking faux-Oriental lacquer table, a charming contemporary folk art cabinet, and a springtime-fresh garden bench decorated with a garland of pansies.
