The projects in this book are painted on "found" objects, from antique stores, resale shops, at yard sales and in closets. They are unique objects that cost very little, but may need some minor repair or refinishing. Reduce or enlarge the design as necessary to fit other items. The projects shown are a guitar, a cabinet, a mitten bowl, canisters, a green glass container, shoe lasts, a sewing basket, napkin holder, mug, lap desk, key cabinet and a trunk. Most are painted in the Telemark style, some in Valdres or Rogaland. Great ideas you can adapt to your own found treasures.
