Transform garage sale finds, family cast-offs, and other junk into uniquely personal decorative pieces. Let a notable interior design star teach you everything you need to turn trash into treasure. Full-color photographs detail every step of twenty fabulous projects that range in style from traditional country floral to contemporary chic. A battered floor lamp gets a new lease on life with fake silver gilding; a plain single bed becomes a young gifts fantasy mini four-poster; a dull, double-fronted wardrobe gets a face-lift to become a French-style armoire. Other projects include chairs, cupboards, tables, a writing desk, screen, footstool, washstand, and more. Many popular decorative techniques are used, such as gilding, mosaic, paint effects, stenciling, applique, and etching to create stunning effects on wood, glass, metal, and fabric. Home decorators will enjoy learning new craft skills, gaining creative inspiration, and ending up with fantastic furnishings for next to nothing! A Selectionof BOMC's Country Book Club.
