Owning one-of-a-kind, bespoke furniture is no longer a privilege of the wealthy or the realm of professional designers. Upstyle Your Furniture shows the rest of us how easy it is to create custom pieces of furniture with a bit of imagination and easy-to-find materials. Why spend a fortune on designer furniture when it's so easy to simply restyle old or inexpensive pieces? Inside, readers will find everything they need to create a look that complements their unique personality and style, including:
  • An introduction to design basics, from tools and materials to understanding how to work with surfaces like wood, glass, fabric, and metal
  • Dozens of tutorials for faux painting techniques; refinishing and distressing surfaces; embellishing upholstery with trims, printing, and embroidery; and much more
  • Resources for supplies, great websites for extra advice, a glossary of terms, and lots of money- and time-saving tips
    An engaging feature of this book lies in its use of "case studies." These brief profiles explore the challenges faced by non-professionals who tackled a project on their own and achieved great results. More than 300 full color images throughout.
    Transform timeworn furniture with this indispensable guide. Discover tips on painting, refinishing, embellishing and more with over 300 full color images, case studies, and more.
