5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful introduction to buying antiques 9 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Don't let the title fool you - this is NOT just for antique dealers. As someone who is interested in antiques, but who doesn't have a lot of money, this has been a great primer on how to pick items and how to clean, fix and generally improve the the things purchased. Instructions on marbelizing, sponge painting, rebuilding lamps and stripping and refinishing furniture are all easy to understand.

This is the most helpful book I've read that in very succinct style tells how to buy, fix up, and possibly resell antiques and other second hand stuff. If you love "shabby chic", but can't afford the prices, this book will make it easier to achieve that look. This book is not for people who worry about getting their hands dirty.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I was looking for 29 May 2013

I was searching for information on how to restore some chairs I purchased some time ago. Although there are some suggestions it isn't very clear and lacks illustrations. Not really for a furniture fixing virgin like me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific book on how to fix antiques. 6 July 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought an antique camel-back trunk that needed lots of restoring and didn't know how to start. My friend recommended this book, and I am so glad I bought it. Not only did it give step by step on restoring a trunk but it also had a refrence page on suppliers for trunk parts. I highly recommended this book to anyone who needs to repair trunks, lamps, pottery and frames. The furniture repair section was sort of brief; I would have like to see more on this topic.
