Furniture Makeovers shows how to transform tired furniture into stunning showpieces.
You’ll never look at a hand-me-down dresser the same way again! The book offers
26 easy-to-follow techniques that can be applied to all different types of pieces, from
bookshelves to desks: painting, applying gold leaf, wallpapering, distressing, dip dyeing,
and more. In addition to the core techniques, author and Knack Studios founder Barb
Blair shares 30 beautiful before-and-after makeovers from her studio and outlines how
to achieve each look. With helpful step-by-step photographs, a visual glossary explaining
all the tools and materials needed, and a lovely contemporary aesthetic, Furniture
is a treasure trove of ideas and instruction for the home decorator.
