Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gilchrist, whose At Home with Pictures and Decorating Your First Apartment provided practical information and decorating projects, here demonstrates how wallpaper can be used creatively in interiors and on decorative accessories and furniture. She reviews the various types of wallpaper now available-such as textured and faux-finished-and gives well-illustrated instructions on the basics steps of wallpaper application. Farkas (Painted Furniture: New Looks in Faux Finishing, Texturing, Stenciling, & More) provides the designs for the wallpaper projects, which include a photograph of the completed project with step-by-step instructions. Nontraditional wallpaper materials (e.g., playing cards, brown paper) are employed, and some projects include wallpaper's use as decoupage material on decorative accessories and furniture. Recommended for public libraries whose patrons desire more books on interior craft projects. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
