Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Paint and wallpaper guru Santos (Faux Finish Secrets) is here to help you save your walls. Cheesy self-promotion aside, this guide contains useful information for wall treatments. The practical and reassuring advice includes important directions on what not to do. This is nitty-gritty do-it-yourself, with outstanding prep instruction, tool selection, well-thought-out tips and tricks, and technique photos. While inspirational wall-treatment photo books abound (e.g., This Old House Weekend Remodels: Paint Ideas & Projects), this is the guide you'll need to achieve those looks. Highly recommended.
