Summary

Here is a makeover book for your home, brimming with tips for adapting everyday objects to suit your budget, taste, and time frame. This handy book is divided into four main sections--Furniture, Floors & Walls, Lighting, and Accessories--illustrated with before and after color photos. Petra Boase, a top home stylist, provides five variations for each example, showing alternative design ideas and materials.

Bright, appealing photos depict the miracles that can be achieved by taking a can of paint to a chair, or getting creative with lampshades. A glossary of techniques explains how to execute the projects, listing basic materials and easy-to-follow instructions. Obtaining paint effects such as crackle glaze, woodstaining, patterned glazes, and distressing has never been so simple. Brimming with trade secrets, decoration shortcuts and design ideas, Decorating Makeovers shows readers how to achieve great design with minimal cost and effort.
