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.
