I also gave this book to my daughter. she has never painted furniture
I've always admired wall finishes that I see in my day-to-day travels - in restaurants, public spaces and magazine photographs. With Debbie Travis' book I can now recreate a wall treatment in my kitchen that I first saw in a trendy Seattle restaurant. I can't wait to get started!
OK to be fair this book teaches different painting techniques successfully. But throughout the examples it seems like they HAVE to paint everything possible. Rather than put a real plant in a room, they paint one onto a wall. Rather than install a tile floor or brick wall, they paint fake ones in. It all just has sort of a comical feel when finished. If you flip through a Pottery Barn catalog and consider that tasteful, then these designs leave alot to be desired. Buy this book for technique, but consider others for inspiration.
