This handy Clever Crafter title offers more than 75 ideas for creating unique furnishings while saving money on redecorating. Terra-cotta urns, outdoor gliders and other garden pieces are transformed into lovely indoor and outdoor furnishings reflecting the popular "shabby chic" look complete with distressed finishes and embellishments like antique metal ceiling tiles. Many projects are painted using "special effects" techniques like marbling or combing, which gives the furniture depth and detail. With this great edition, even beginner-level crafters can create their own one-of-a-kind designer furniture pieces, while showing off their individuality at the same time!
