I absolutely loved this book. It was such an excellent buy that even if I wasn't crazy about it I wouldn't have felt ripped off. Books like this cost a lot more money in a book store. I would definately purchase more books from Amazon.Excellent buy,,excellent service, rapid delivery. The whole experience was positive.

I really like this product although it's not as easy as the book would suggest. I would still recommend it however as , as far as I know, there is no other product like it.

The book is okay. There are a lot of explanations and tips, but the pictures are not as pretty as i thought they would be!

A Book Well Worth Buying! April 19 2012
By handpapermaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: 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.

Quick and Easy Paint Transformations: 50 Step-by-step Ways to Makeover Your Home for Next to Nothing Oct. 31 2011
By AntiquariusV - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

Easy Furniture Transformations Sept. 17 2010
By Andy P. Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Good ideas, but not what I hoped for Feb. 6 2013
By amie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are lots of good ideas if you want the aged, antique look, but not many for a fresh new look. I was hoping for more of that type.

Inspirational Book and Author March 14 2011
By Casual Cottage Chic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Annie Sloan is such a delight in person, and just like her book, makes it seem so easy to transform a plain piece of furniture into an "antique treasure" for your home! Great photos and easy to follow directions. The great thing about the Chalk Paints and waxes...flexible! If you don't like the results it's so easy to re-do until you have the perfect finish you want for your furniture piece. Love Annie; love her books! If you paint furniture, this book is a MUST HAVE along with Annie's fabulous CHALK PAINTS and special waxes. You can order directly from a USA stockist; just find one near you by going to Annie's website.
