Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This glamorous book features wall and floor treatments and paint effects on furniture, cabinetry, and fabric. Particularly stunning are the painted stair runners. All these lovely projects have only minimal instructions for completion, and painting technique guidance is tucked in the back. This book is similar to This Old House Weekend Remodels in showcasing great ideas for inspiration but lacking instruction. For good painting technique how-to, see Painting and Wallpapering Secrets from Brian Santos, The Wall Wizard. Recommended for libraries that can afford another painting idea book.
