If you haven’t heard of the new book Furniture Makeovers by Barb Blair. You are missing out!! This is a great resource for DIY tips and techniques on restoring, updating, painting, and fixing furniture!
Here’s Barnes & Nobles Overview:
Furniture Makeovers shows how to transform tired furniture into stunning showpieces. You’ll never look at a hand-me-down dresser the same way again! The book offers 26 easy-to-follow techniques that can be applied to all different types of pieces, from bookshelves to desks: painting, applying gold leaf, wallpapering, distressing, dip dyeing, and more. In addition to the core techniques, author and Knack Studios founder Barb Blair shares 30 beautiful before-and-after makeovers from her studio and outlines how to achieve each look. With helpful step-by-step photographs, a visual glossary explaining all the tools and materials needed, and a lovely contemporary aesthetic, Furniture Makeovers is a treasure trove of ideas and instruction for the home decorator.
I don’t know about you but I LOVE before and after pictures, especially ones with tips on how they did the makeover, and a story behind the piece. This book is not lacking this at all! Barb goes into great detail about how she made these pieces new that are easy to follow and wonderfully informative. My favorite part of each of these projects? She has a materials list! You’ll know exactly what you need before you even start the project!
Thanks to this book giving me some serious inspiration, I decided to do a makeover pieces myself!
We’ve had this corner cabinet in our family longer than I can remember and it’s been passed down to me! I love the idea and the functionality of it but in it’s current location – it sticks out like a sore thumb!
