Thank you for your interest in reading the Guide to Furniture Finishes e-book by Christa @ Stories of A House and us here at European Paint Finishes! Read on to learn more about our book and new affiliate program where you can earn commissions.
The idea to write this step-by-step how-to guide came as a result of scouring books and the internet to find answers to our questions when we began painting and refinishing furniture. Answers were either difficult to find or confusing, and there definitely wasn't one place where we could find everything put together in an easy-to-read format.
After spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars and hours on trial and error to produce our finishes, and due to the many emails we receive asking us how-to questions, we realized there was a need for a comprehensive guide like the one we have written. For less than the cost of a gallon of paint, you get to benefit from all of our trial and error. This is the book we were looking for when we started to paint and refinish furniture!
The book is 60 detailed pages long, and includes pictures and hyperlinks to short videos. Our goal during writing was for the information to be well organized and as concise as possible. It is a great resource to explore what is involved in producing high-end finishes from not just one but two reputable refinishers.
- refinishing (stripping & staining)
- painting (recommended products, primers and priming problems, painting by hand, painting with professional equipment)
- weathering techniques
- protective finishes
- project clips (these are short videos demonstrating techniques with captions describing what we are doing, and why.
We are receiving great feedback!

"Best $30 I've ever spent! After reading this book I realized I didn't have a clue as to what goes into refinishing furniture and the necessary products used. Thank you!"
"Although my experience in refinishing furniture is non-existant I want to make my whole house over in black and white. I bought your new e-book and just love it. Really appreciate so many videos. I thought I needed to get rid of all my furniture and start over but now I can see the great lines in each of my mis-matched pieces and can’t wait to make them all look great in black and white. Going to do my kitchen cabinets and woodwork too!"
