With clear, visual instruction, this guide shows do-it-yourselfers how to select second-hand furniture pieces, fix them up, and turn them into beautiful decorative works. In 12 step-by-step projects, readers will learn how to adorn their furniture with landscape scenes, trompe l'oeil, animals, fruits, florals and other decorative painting motifs. Chapters cover: the hunt for diamonds in the the rough; preparation, supplies and making minor repairs; basecoating for a smooth surface; and lastly, decorating each piece. All projects feature easy-to-use acrylics, and the author also includes simple antiquing and faux finishing techniques so readers can add their own personal touches.
