I did expect something more unique to find in this book just because Annie Sloan is a big name and she is famous for her chalk pain line. The reason I made this purchase was I wanted information on the chalk pain finish, and it is not there. So it was a waste for me, but as I said, it is an o.k. book for someone who needs to know more about stenceling, different paint tecjnics etc.I have already book from Home Depot, and to buy this book was waste of money. Will resell it.

This book is great for the faux finisher, teaches you alot of tricks. great buy!

I really enjoyed this book. I just wished there had been even more techniques especially the old world techniques. I am already working on one of the finishes as I write.

The person I bought this for is really into fixing up old furniture -- especially with Annie Sloan paints and techniques. The book was in excellent condition and really has some great ideas.

I wanted a book of ann Sloan's that was about chalk painting - this one was not - probably my mistake
