More painting fun, less tiresome preparation, and great results: that’s why these techniques are the best for creating heirloom-quality home d cor. For 15 years, designer Karen Petrus Williams has experimented and developed an array of shortcuts, which she reveals here along with her finest projects. All are done on flea market purchases with acrylic paints, using simple yet eye-pleasing processes of building and blending on the surface. Color photos, worksheets, and patterns guide even beginners through 20 lovely pieces, all exquisitely embellished with such vintage-style flourishes as floral wreaths, scrolls, and cartouches. The items include a topiary armoire, panel of roses trunk, and oval cameo desk, and there are tips to customize the pattern for other
furniture types.
