Knack Studio founder Barb Blair is famous for her "knack" with furniture: spotting classic pieces and transforming them into modern showstoppers. In this inspiring book, Blair goes beyond the nuts and bolts of furniture refinishing to show how to style rooms with each customized piece. For instance, she transforms a well-worn coffee table with a painted ombré design, and then reveals how to incorporate it into a bright and sunny den, a cozy reading nook, and a cheerful bedroom. With instructions for 15 before-and-after furniture projects—dressers, tables, beds, armoire, and more—in Blair's signature bold style, a "toolbox" section detailing her favorite techniques and materials, and photos of dozens of inspiring interiors, Furniture Makes the Room unlocks the secrets to decorating livable rooms around statement pieces.
