Fabulous Painted Furniture
Fantastic and fanciful designs, simple and irresistible techniques, and projects that give new life to old or unfinished furniture: all it takes is paint, stain, and paper to decorate to your heart's content. Nothing could be more fun than watching these wonderful pieces emerge from your paintbrush. A sea-blue chair dazzles with an ocean full of smiling fish, while a crackled and distressed metallic table features dragonflies in flight. Daisies and ladybugs adorn a charming miniature chest. Patterns and easy-to-follow instructions for chairs, tables, chests of drawers, cabinets, and children's furniture make each project easy. 8 1/2 X 11. all in color
