Decorative furniture, in Dewberry's viewpoint, means painting in the one- (or a few-) brushstroke technique--not the sponging, ragging, and stenciling that Jocasta Innes articulated. In fact, the entire how-to and project orientation here focuses on painting; there's nothing about preparation, stripping, and other preliminary methods needed for a clean, ready-to-decorate surface. Yet for fanciers of this traditional technique, the sky is virtually the limit of possibilities--10 projects show, from background to final varnish, the best effects of applying colorful flowers and fauna and displaying blue-and-white china atop chests of drawers, tables, trunks, and screens. Great step-by-step photographs help master this art. Resources appended. Barbara Jacobs
