It's easy to add a pinch of panache to any d├ęcor with these unique and gorgeous painted designs for chairs, benches, shelves, even pillows. Just transfer the patterns to the furniture, follow the color placement instructions and detailed worksheets, add shadows and highlights as explained, and you have a beautiful piece that would have cost a fortune in a retail store. Decorate a drop-leaf table with colorful fruits of the season: purple grapes, golden pears, luscious peaches, and ripe red apples. An old flea market chair becomes worthy of royalty when given a fun "Queen of Hearts" motif. Or try the Fairest of Them All Mirror, Le Jardin Twig Footstool, Just for Her Cabinet, and other fabulous patterns.

Priscilla Hauser's : Book Of Painting Patterns (USD 24.95 @ RM 83)

The only recourse to expensive home accessories, whether Jay Strongwater's picture frames or antique folk-art trunks? Follow Hauser's path, as her sixth book offers more than 10 painted patterns to copy. Often nicknamed the First Lady of Decorating Painting, she attacks the actual art with gusto, including a minimal number of pages on basics (for instance, paint, brushes, equipment, and a few techniques). Her attention turns to dozens of full-color, full-page illustrations, ready to transfer; sections that feature flowers, fruit and vegetables, animals, and other things of nature; and the popular "a little something extra" (also known as border art and Christmas season visuals). No directions hamper the pictorial parade; a couple of finished pieces--a suitcase, a picture frame--are inserted within the patterns. For those with a good handle on decorative painting.

The acknowledged queen of decorative painting has a gift for those who love to pick up the brush: more than 200 of her most striking patterns. These are the most popular designs among Priscilla Hauser’s many students, and they include florals, fruit, folk art, garden motifs, baskets and other containers, animals, and holiday ideas. It’s a goldmine…and there’s still more, because Priscilla supplies plenty of information on using and transferring the patterns; choosing supplies; and
mastering such techniques as shading and highlighting, blending, changing colors, and finishing the piece. She also covers preparing and painting on different surfaces, from glass and fabric to wood and metal. Finally, each pattern is painted by Priscilla in color, to inspire fellow painters.
