Decorative Paint Projects offers a wealth of ideas on how to transform inexpensive furniture and accessories at minimal cost, using a comprehensive range of different paint techniques to decorate items around the home. Popular techniques such as distressing and stencilling are included, as well as some of the more unusual ones, such as tarnishing, lacquering, and creating mock animal hides. The projects are divided into two sections. Part 1 looks at rejuvenating old or plain furniture in each room of the home, from an elegant marquetry dining table to a rustic country-style dresser. Part 2 includes projects for smaller furnishing items, giving advice on how to work with a range of surfaces.
