Annie Sloan's Painted Kitchen: Paint Effect Transformations for Walls, Cupboards, and Furniture
Traditionally the center of the home, the kitchen is key to successful living. Decorator Annie Sloan, one of the world's leading experts on color and interior painting, has produced a range of stunning professional schemes to give the most popular room of the home an entirely new look with a minimum of effort and little expense. Using her unique expertise, she shows how to decorate every kitchen area - walls, cupboards, and surfaces - providing clear instructions and step-by-step color photography. Projects range from an exuberant Mexican-style blue-and-yellow color-washed kitchen to revamping a battered family table and chairs as Swedish-style lime-washed dining furniture. Annie Sloan's Painted Kitchen also reveals simple afternoon makeovers and ingenious finishing touches, such as painting cupboard knobs or the inside of kitchen drawers in a contrast color to the outside for a fun, fashionable finish. All the projects are suitable for beginners and many feature style variations for the more adventurous.
