Book was published in 1977 but many of the techniques still apply! Great book that offers basic techniques on repairs, how to buy & tools and materials needed for transforming old tired vintage furniture!

This item was bought at full price & not a review item!
This is a great book to have on hand, even if you aren't looking to repurpose anything specific, it makes for a very useful reference tool. I know that these days there are a lot of websites that provide similar ideas, but you need to know exactly what you are looking to do: this book is great to have on hand because it can give you insights on how to turn some of your own "junk" into something useful. It's also great to flip thrrough before going to your local goodwill or flea market. The fact that it is hardcover is a bonus, making it a good coffee table book as well.
I liked this book mostly because it had some few interesting effects. . . but for the most part, I wish there had been more detail in the techniques, and fewer photos of 'projects.' So for that reason it gets 2 stars. Not horrible, but also not terribly useful.
bought this for my boyfriends mom for christmas since she likes refinishing stuff and she loved it. she cannot wait to try out some of the ideas
Lots of great information in this book, can't wait to implement the color blocking on my kitchen chairs!
This book is a good book for people who like things that really stand out. I was kinda disappointed in reading the instructions because they are kind of vague. Again, this is a good book for people who like furniture that is a conversation piece.
I enjoyed the book and got some good ideas!
This book has great ideas and instructions, with pictures. The styles may be a bit outdated but can be adapted to any style.
