Product Description & Reviews

Create distinctive floor coverings to match your home's decorCanvas floorcloths are an inexpensive way to add style and beauty to any room in the house.Whether your style is contemporary or Victorian, elegant or whimsical, a custom-designed floorcloth will transform your ordinary floor into a work of art. And you can do it yourself - it's fun and surprisingly easy.In Fabulous Floorcloths you'll find projects for all skill levels - from the novice crafter to the experienced artist. The complete easy-to-follow instructions and step-by-step illustrations help you create exactly what you want. No more paying high prices for custom carpeting or area rugs - canvas floorcloths are inexpensive to make and long-lasting.Choose from the 15 projects included or design your own to suit your individual style.Techniques include:Stamping and veiningPaintingStencilingLatticePaper decoupagePaper and fabric appliqueDoily sprayFrom "Rainbow Hopscotch" for the game room, "Victorian Lace" for the bedroom, or "Stained Glass" or "Santa Fe" for the family room, you'll find a floorcloth project to complement any decor. If you want to create an exciting focal point for a room or disguise a boring floor, a colorful floorcloth may be the solution. Created from heavy canvas and adorned with paint, stencils, stamps, paper decoupage, or fabric appliqué, a floorcloth can be a simple accent or a work of art. Consult this book for excellent directions on materials, preparation, finishing, and an array of decorative techniques. The 15 step-by-step projects are divided into simple, intermediate, and advanced, so you can jump in at whatever skill level feels comfortable. Greet visitors with a stenciled welcome mat bordered with paper-napkin decoupage, perk up a bedroom with a Victorian lace design made by spray painting over paper doilies to form the delicate pattern, step into a pool of light with a circle of faux stained glass, or bedeck a table with a runner sporting classical Greek figures. The designs are pleasant and the color illustrations adequate; more photos of the finished floorcloths in actual rooms would have been nice to give a better sense of scale and context. But the thorough instructions and smattering of helpful tips make the book worthwhile. --Amy Handy
