When Sterling Press came to me and asked if I would write the definitive book on painted furniture, I jumped at the opportunity. Within these pages, I share all my secrets. When HGTV began with shows like Christopher Lowell, Kitty Bartholomew, and Carol Duval, I was a regular guest expert showing off my painting techniques.

More than half of the 132-page book is step-by-step procedures and along the way, you get a smattering of feng shui color awareness, a sense of groupings, and tip-offs on the trendy."
