Summary

Summary

This book makes painting furniture fun, creative and economical. Readers will discover clever ways to transform old or unfinished chairs, tables or beds into one-of-a-kind showpieces for their 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.


Author Notes

Annie Sloan writes about decorative painting of furniture and interiors in The Painted Furniture Sourcebook: Motifs from Medieval Times to the Present Day and Decorative Antique Effects.
