The Bathroom Idea Book Total Hits - 4616  |  Hits Today - 0 Rating:   Rating Average (11)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
As its name suggests, The Bathroom Idea Book is all about ideas. In fact, anyone who views the book's 400 color photos will have clearer ideas about what they absolutely love, simply appreciate and definitely detest in bathroom design. Andrew Wormer has done an excellent job of covering enough ground to make this book useful for both the do-it-yourselfer and the homeowner who wants to paint a clear picture for an architect or a builder. Just about every bathroom style and option is covered and beautifully photographed, from antique fixtures (pedestal sinks, clawfoot tubs), to modern luxuries (a shower with a bubbling footbath and eight adjustable body and hydromassage jets), to high-tech touches (a cascading waterfall shower digitally controlled by a thermostatic valve and 10 massaging body jets), to the low-frill and durable (installing an acrylic liner over your old, battered tub). The book would be even more useful if Wormer devoted additional space to the costs of the sometimes sensible, sometimes spacious and sometimes glorious bathrooms we see. He does offer a few paragraphs on general price ranges and helps the reader understand what drives up costs (moving fixtures and walls), but this book ultimately is about dreaming, not budgeting. Read it to imagine how your bathroom could look, then worry about the price. This is not to suggest that the book lacks helpful planning tips. Overhead drawings on many pages give you a sense of the rest of the bathroom that can't be captured in a photo. And Wormer offers options for one of the trickier challenges when trying to improve the most frequently remodeled room in the house--finding more space. Among his ideas is annexing space from an adjoining area, such as a closet or hallway. Readers of The Bathroom Idea Book will find that even if their dream bathroom isn't pictured, they will be able to mix-and-match and combine features from various photos to get a good idea of what they can do.

Decorative painting - the ornamentation of wood, tin, glass, paper, and other surfaces with painted designs - requires no previous artistic training or drawing skill. The Big Book of Decorative Painting contains invaluable information on this delightful and imaginative craft for artists and crafters at every level of experience: hesitant beginners looking for a thorough and reassuring step-by-step guide; "Sunday painters" who want to perfect their color mixing and brush control techniques; intermediate painters and accomplished fine artists who want to take their art in a new direction; teachers seeking a thoughtful manual, complete with a progressive curriculum and lessons for a range of skill levels. Using exercises to develop the skills necessary for working on and successfully completing projects, chapters on color mixing, brush control and loading, basic brushstrokes, paint application and blending, and surface preparation provide a strong foundation for the beginner and an excellent review for the experienced painter. Each motif in the four design categories - brushstrokes, fruits, vegetables, and florals - is covered in three skill levels: Quick and Easy, Intermediate, and Advanced. Every lesson includes: a list itemizing the required materials and skills; step-by-step instructions for the specific project's surface preparation, decorative painting, and finishing; a worksheet that provides a detailed breakdown of how to paint the major elements of the design; and a photograph of the completed project. Regardless of their ability, readers can get the most out of the book by mixing the patterns and lessons; for example, a beginner can use Quick and Easy techniques on Advanced-level patterns and projects. Information on lettering, special effects such as faux finishes, trompe l'oeil, and gold leaf, and finishing techniques is expanded in separate in-depth chapters. The concluding chapter on how to work with patterns includes the patterns for all the project
