Format: Paperback
I was having a hard time getting started painting furniture. I highly recommend this book for beginners like myself. My first projects are painting over furniture that has already been painted. They were painted black and I didn't have a clue whether it was possible to paint a lighter color on top. With the tips in this book, and with a good paint primer, it IS possible! The author has kept her instructions down to the minimal most important tips. So, I'm not overwhelmed by it. I love how she photographed all the necessary supplies and tools on one page. She has another book she co-wrote that I looked at in the library; it features full rooms of special paint techniques. That book is overwhelming for me. '50 Ways' shows small pieces of furniture, which is very manageable for the beginner, like me. I highly recommend this book!

I'm a beginner and I found a few holes in this book. It doesn't go into preparation of surfaces very thoroughly, especially furniture that's already painted or stained. There also isn't much info on distressing furniture. It gives one example of using blue and white paint underneath, and doesn't explain what other colors you might need to achieve a different look. I found this book to be too bare-bones and limiting... who needs a table painted like a checkerboard?

This book gave me lots of ideas for painting furniture without a lot of artistic talent. A+ there. However, many of the techniques list one type & color of paint with no discussion of why or possible substitutions. Some discussions at my local painting store gave me more insight.

As a decorative faux painter, I am always looking for new ideas and inspiration. I found both in this book. Glad to have in my library.

saving one piece of used furniture is the best, to be able to re-paint and have a like-new finish is wonderful, it saves $$ and it gives the painter great boost of " I can do this" and that's a great feeling, that makes a "positive" for everyone

Book could be more helpful, and not try to cram so many ides into it w/out giving clearer directions. I guess people want more for there money these days so this is why so many ideas.
