    This review is from: Quick and Easy Paint Transformations: 50 Step-by-step Ways to Makeover Your Home for Next to Nothing (Paperback)
    I just completed reading Annie Sloans newest book, Quick and Easy Paint Transformations. Chalk paint is a unique and historical medium and with it you do not have to prime your piece first, saving both time and money.

    I found this book very helpful as I learned many “Tips & Trade Secrets” that would had taken me years to learn through trial and error. I particularily like learning how Sloan selects which colors for which projects, how she uses her paint in layers and her unique color combinations. It was a complete and deightful surprise to learn that this paint can also be used on metal, cement, floors, walls as well as wood furniture.

    I recommend also buying the $5.00 handpainted paint chart as well. I liked having that chart in hand to review the colors of each project and to not have to flip back and forth to the back of the book where the other chart (printed on glossy paper and not as accurate to my eye)is located.

    If you are interested in restoring or beautifying furniture or plan to do any DYI hand painting, this is the book for you.

    This is a beautiful book to look at, however I felt the specific details in obtaining the final finished product were lacking.
    I had many questions about the waxing aspect and felt like it could have been more detailed.

    This is a beautiful book – it makes you want to buy a piece of furniture just to learn how to paint like shown in the book. I didn’t think the instructions were detailed enough or had enough information about the type of paint to use (unless you purchased the paint from the writer or one other place in the US). But, I found the book to have excellent examples of what can be done with an otherwise ugly piece of furniture to revive and make it beautiful.
