Debbie Travis' Painted House : Paint has long been a fast and creative way to give a home a fresh new look. In this wonderful book, Debbie Travis shares the well-kept trade secrets that have made her one of today's hottest painted-finishes experts. Based on her ground-breaking philosophy that spectacular paint effects need not be the product of messy oil paints and complicated techniques, the book offers complete instructions for more than 35 incredible finishes, all created using worry-free water-based paints and glazes. Each project -- from a simple color-washed wall to an elegant faux marble mantel, from a time-worn antiqued sideboard to a contemporary "sheet metal" table -- is accompanied by detailed full-color photographs and step-by-step instructions, as well as tips for ensuring truly professional results.
