Weekend Furniture Facelifts 70 Great Ways to Update Your Furnishings by Helen Carey

Everyone gets the urge to redecorate--but often there's little money or time to spare. Now there's a way to renovate furnishings quickly, even on the tightest budget. More than 20 step-by-step projects--from pretty pastel chairs and divine lampshades to sparkling bathroom storage and an instant home office--are explained and illustrated with detailed photographs. A glass tabletop becomes a focal point with the help of a stenciled floral design. A bed radiates luxury with the addition of a fabric-covered headboard. Incredible color and texture effects are achieved using the latest paint and craft products. And each one of the eye-catching projects can be completed in a weekend or less.
