Here, Better Homes and Gardens provides a book full of painted furniture projects for beginners and more experienced do-it-yourselfers alike. The numerous color photographs depict painted furniture and decorative accessories shown in dining rooms, in bedrooms, and even on porches, with captions detailing how to incorporate them into your decor as well as a reference to the project instructions for each piece at the conclusion of the book. The directions give skill level for each project, a great help since the instructions lack illustrations, which might intimidate beginners. A great addition to large public libraries.
