Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These four books supply a multitude of projects for the do-it-yourselfer. The Paper Shade Book, for instance, illustrates various styles for all types of lamps, while Making Decorative Screens demonstrates how to make framed and solid-panel screens using various techniques such as decoupage, paint finishes, mosaic, and fabric; each give well-written and illustrated instructions for each project. Both Painted Chairs, which shows whimsical painted decorations for all types of chairs, and Floor Style, which employs techniques such as stenciling and staining for indoors and outdoors, show the finished product with well-written instructions but few illustrations, which makes these two books better suited to experienced crafters. Purchase for public libraries where there is an interest. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
