It is almost impossible to look through this book and not want to start painting immediately. The colors are delightfully different from what is usually shown in project books for painted furniture. The best part is the project actually turns out like the picture, even if you are trying this craft for the first time.From Booklist:
The rage to paint furniture, for the most part, has centered on re-creating time-honored finishes and decorations, from sponging to imitating malachite, all to a traditional effect. Weaver veers from the tried-and-true as she incorporates both contemporary and old-fashioned techniques very frequently in one piece of furniture or a project. Sponge-painted rockers, for instance, are also the recipients of some folk art^-type freehand motifs. A man's plaid chest, as another example, appears to the manor born but is actually finished with modern-day watercolor pencils. Instructions for each of the 27 projects are fairly comprehensive and include a variety of color photographs, but rank novices had better check first with a primer such as Inne's Paint Magic.
