Captializes on the public's booming interest in bargain hunting as evidenced by the popularity PBS's Antiques Road Show and Furniture on the Mend. With clear, visual instruction, this guide shows do-it-yourselfers how to select second-hand furniture pieces, fix them up, and turn them into beautiful decorative works. In 12 step-by-step projects, readers will learn how to adorn their furniture with landscape scenes, trompe l'oeil, animals, fruits, florals and other decorative painting motifs. Chapters cover: the hunt for diamonds in the the rough; preparation, supplies and making minor repairs; basecoating for a smooth surface; and lastly, decorating each piece.
