Book Club Friday

Young House Love by John & Sherry Petersik


Design ideas for every style, skill level, and budget, from the beloved couple behind
This debut book by bloggers Sherry and John Petersik is filled with hundreds of fun, deceptively simple, budget-friendly ideas for sprucing up a home. With two home renovations under their (tool) belts, 5 million blog hits per month, and an ever-growing audience since the launch of Young House Love in 2007, Sherry and John are home-improvement enthusiasts primed to pass on a slew of projects, tricks, and techniques to do-it-yourselfers of all levels. Whether an experienced decorator or a total novice, on a tight budget or with money to spend, a any homeowner or apartment dweller will find ideas for his or her own home makeovers here. Learn to trick out a thrift-store mirror, spice up plain old roller shades, "hack" your Ikea table to create three distinct looks, and so much more.

Packed with 243 tips and ideas--both classic and unexpected--every project pictured was exclusively executed for the book. With more than 400 photographs and illustrations, this is a book that readers will return to again and again for the creative projects and easy-to-follow instructions in the relatable voice the Petersiks are known for. Adding a little wow factor to your home has never been more fun!


I ADORE their blog. You can find a link to it here. If I even had a pinky's worth of their creativity, my house would look completely different. This is not really a book that you sit down and read, but I have been randomly leafing through it for a week so far. The one is smaller than I thought it would be (about the size of a normal book). But it has some great ideas on ways to spruce up your living space. And since they are true DIY's - most of the ideas are easy on the wallet. 

And even if you don't get the book, I suggest checking out their site for some great ideas!
