Giveaway: Furniture Makeovers Book

July 26, 2013

Furniture Makeovers

I recently worked on my first (amateur) refinish, so the timing felt perfect when Chronicle Books invited me to take part in their latest blog tour!

Barb Blair is the founder of Knack Studios and also a miracle-worker with furniture pieces that are past their prime. Her book, Furniture Makeovers, has over 26 techniques to transform old furniture and 30 examples of before-and-after makeovers with instructions on how to do it yourself.

If you’re interested in getting your hands on a free copy along with a tote back from Knack Studios, just leave a comment below! Giveaway closes next Saturday, August 3rd at midnight EST. Good luck!

Furniture Makeovers

Update: Congrats to Marty, comment #28 for winning the Furniture Makeovers book!

    I was just looking for this book tonight at my local B&N! (They didn’t have it.) I need some Ultimate Refinishing Wisdom and Help. My kitchen table surface and I would be eternally grateful for this book. Pick me!

    We are buying a new house and will need a bunch of new furniture – this would be perfect to help us create some unique pieces!

    Could absolutely use the inspiration to DIY and personalise some lovely pieces for our place – we moved into our current house three years ago and still haven’t finished “moving in” and making it our home.

    I love everything I’ve heard about this book! I’m sure I could resurface every piece of furniture in my house.

    I could use a copy… I tried myself once or twice on furniture and was never really happy with the result. We have some old furniture in our basement that are waiting to be transformed… so I could use some tips…

    I have just started a make over to my mostly dark furniture. This book would help me greatly.

    I would looooove a book about refinishing furniture, as it’s been a passion of mine for a while now. I’m kind of flying by the seat of my pants so a book with great tips would be insane!

    I’m always looking for fun ways to update and recycle. This book would just be the perfect inspiration collection that I was looking for!

    I love a good furniture makeover! We painted and updates a bunch of old furniture from my grandparents’ house and parents’ garage before we moved. It was a lot of work, but so worth it in the end! I would love to have a copy of this book to get some more ideas!

    I loved how your sideboard turned out and I could definitely use some motivation when it comes to refinishing. (I say this as someone whose bathroom cabinets doors have been removed and waiting to be refinished for over a year. Gulp)

    Would love to have this book! I’m looking to work on a credenza and definitely in need of inspiration!

    Super cool! I mostly wing it when it comes to furniture — having real instructions would be good. ;)
