Whether you want to freshen up your bedroom walls or add copper leaf to a picture frame, you can do it in a weekend-as long as you have these simple and attractive techniques for adding decorative finishes. Just one look at the 20 projects will inspire you to exercise your creativity and transform your home. Everything's easy to follow: the basics section with its information on tools, materials, and supplies; the instructions for the actual applications; and the handsome photos with such detail they almost seem to guide your paintbrush. So take that boring white wall and give it a finish that resembles aged Venetian plaster; the soft texture or real suede, or even alligator skin. Bring ethnic flair to a room with a floorcloth that features a faux batik design, "age" a wooden chest of drawers with paint and a rag, and lots more!
