Inspirations in Painted Furniture
Painting furniture can be fun, creative and economical. In this book, you will discover clever ways to transform old or unfinished chairs, tables or beds into one-of-a-kind show pieces for your home (and for a fraction of the cost of new, factory-finished furniture!) A remarkable range of techniques are clearly illustrated with step-by-step instruction: staining, bleaching, waxing with colored waxes, stenciling, faux finishing, hand painting, stamping, distressing, wax resist, crackling, gilding and more. The book is organized into six chapters by decorating styles: Fruit and Flowers, Figures and Animals, Classical, Geometrics, Finishes, and Distressing.
