We've blogged numerous techniques for transforming furniture, including decoupage, liming and staining. These techniques are not limited to furniture. They can also be used to transform walls, floors and ceilings.

Whether the obstacle for doing it yourself is time, patience or just plain old clumsiness, you might consider calling Kate Hoffman. With a degree in fine art and 16 years of experience as a specialty paint-finisher, she can manifest your idea with speed and beauty, whether it's a mural for your dining room, a skim coating of Venetian plaster for your living room, a mosaic in your garden or, what we've already talked about having Kate do for us, clouds on the ceiling of our bedroom with stars painted in paint that glows only at night.
