Christophe Pourny learned the art of furniture restoration in his father’s atelier in the South of France. On this, his first book, he teaches readers the whole lot they wish to know about the provenance and history of furniture, in addition to methods to restore, update, and take care of their furniture―from antiques to midcentury pieces, circle of relatives heirlooms or funky flea-market finds. The heart of the book is an overview of Pourny’s favorite techniques―ceruse, vernis anglais,and water gilding, among many others―with full-color step by step photographs to be sure that readers can easily replicate each and every refinishing technique at home. Pourny brings these techniques to life with a chapter devoted to real-world refinishing projects, from a veneered table to an ebonized desk, a gilt frame to a painted northern European hutch. Rounding out this comprehensive guide is care and maintenance information, including methods to properly clean leather, polish hardware, fix a broken leg, and replace felt pads, in addition to recipes to make your own wax, shellac, varnish, stain, and more.
