Fantastic Furniture in an Afternoon
All it takes is paint, a little time, and some inspired, quick, and easy decorative ideas to give old furniture a new lease on life. These 29 ways to use stenciling, stamping, sponging, distressing, stippling, and glazing techniques will result in magnificent, strikingly original focal points for every room in the house. Choose a style: some are whimsical, bursting with color and fun details, like the "busy bees" that embellish a honey-colored cupboard. Others, including a Southern Magnolias Armoire, add a touch of old-fashioned romance. And, still more are just right for a child's room.
