Anyone just looking for French style books, like I was at the time, might be as disappointed as I was originally tho.
Original review: I found this book a bit bland, just not very informational compared to many other "French look" books I've gotten.
Pictures weren't very inspiring.
I'd read someone's review that didn't like it and I thought maybe they were just being picky...but turns out I felt the same about it.
I love books and keep most all of them I ever buy...I love books on French style and have many of them...this just was not worth the money and I don't even care to keep it as part of my decorating collection, that's how uninspiring I found it to be.
But i'm giving this book 2 stars because of the rather sad list of projects or ideas Annie Sloan has decided to create a book out of. There were nice vivid photos - but not all the projects were focused on painting. In addition - I was expecting more ideas of "french look" color combinations - for painting furniture. Just not worth my $$. I would've returned it - except I don't believe in returning items such as books - especially when the service has been wonderful!
