A few years ago, decorative painter Sunny Goode created Sunny’s Goodtime Paints with a single goal in mind: giving everyone the means to reproduce the beauty of old fresco plaster, stone walls, or glazed finishes in their own homes. Paint Can!—a lavishly illustrated, inspiring, and instructive primer on how to add decorative flourishes with paint—is the next logical step in her mission. She offers a complete on-the-page course called “Paint 101” and explains just what paint can do, from highlighting architectural details to making small rooms appear larger. And almost every technique is here: colorwashing, working freehand, stenciling, glazing, imitating stoneblock, and adding patterns to a surface. It’s the simple way to add color and personality to every room.

Comments: awsome ideas and easy how to! I did it! I like how I could achieve any of the rooms I saw without having to guess on colors or products. At first I thought it promoted her paints a little too much, but now I see why!- you can do any of the rooms in the book easily.
