Fun book for a new homeowner or experienced decorator. Great tips and a variety projects for any budget!
Sherry and John Petersik started their blog in 2007 when they bought their first house and started a kitchen remodel. The blog that started as a way to keep family and friends updated on their projects now gets over five million visitors a month!
This is the bloggers' debut book, and all 243 projects feature creative, budget-friendly projects to spruce up a room. They also have tons of helpful tips about decorating and DIY. Projects are broken down by time and expense, and range from stenciling a rug to updating old coasters to making an upholstered headboard.
I started reading Young House Love about six months ago and really enjoyed their book because it has tons of inspiring new projects and ideas. As a new homeowner, they make the very overwhelming process of decorating a home seem attainable and fun.
I work with kids and adults at the library. I'm a new mom, so these days you can find me reading board books, singing silly songs and wiping drool off my clothes. When I have some spare time, I enjoy reading and listening to audiobooks, doing yoga and cooking with my husband.
