, the second in the From Drab to Fab series, shows you how to save money and have fun revitalizing old furniture and flea-market finds.
The From Drab to Fab series follows the same philosophy that made Country Sampler Decorating Ideas America's favorite how-to decorating magazine. Like Walls That Wow, the first book in the series, Furniture Fix-Ups starts with the basics and introduces readers to the materials and techniques they'll use to transform furniture pieces. Each chapter covers a different style or technique, and then presents four separate step-by-step projects complete with four-color photos of every part of the process, including before and after photos. Along with the in-depth projects there are also "Quick-Hit projects," offering simple techniques that make a big difference with very little effort.
Furniture Fix-Ups will introduce you to techniques ranging from decoupage to stains and dyes, painted patterns to transferred images. You'll learn to create a crackled paint look, use punched tin to give a cabinet new life, and use stenciling to add interest to an old armoire, plus many more inspiring projects!
The Country Sampler name is a powerhouse in the magazine industry. It's where do-it-yourselfers turn for tips on everything from full-on down-home country looks to a more modern, rustic style of decorating.
Country Sampler Decorating Ideas is America's favorite how-to decorating magazine. It brings readers the best in today's country styles by showcasing innovative projects with simple step-by-step instructions and full-color photography to help readers personalize their homes.
