"The First Lady of Decorative Painting" has already taught more than a million people around the world the pleasures of creative painting, and now she reveals how to turn "seen better days" old furniture into extraordinary works of decorative art. Anyone can do it, simply by following her no-fail instructions. Just trace the patterns and follow the color photographs that illustrate the techniques, from prepping the furniture to adding lifelike illustrations of flora and fauna; from creating distressed and "crackle" finishes to preserving the finished piece with a variety of sealing and trimming methods. The projects include a British Colonial Palm Tree Chair complete with climbing monkeys, a Lollipop Roses Desk, a Fly Fishing Stool, and other beautiful and fun items.
