Young House Love: 243 Ways to Paint, Craft, Update and Show Your Home Some Love, Sherry and John Petersik. New York: Artisan, 2012. 336 pps. http://www.younghouselove.com/
Young House Love is a first effort by blogging couple Sherry and John Petersik with a blog by the same name. They hail from Richmond Virginia where they are fixing up their fixer-upper home. The ideas are fresh and creative. The results pop from the glossy pages of photographs. One does not need tons of money and a private paid designer to do the projects ideas included in the book. This is a book for regular folks.
sapphoq reviews says: Young House Love is an outstanding book and one worth having for folks who are frugal by nature and enjoy paint splatter. I usually prefer country style/farm style stuff myself. But the projects in this book suited me. I have plans to try some of the crafty ideas in Young House Love .
Recommended for folks like me who fix up flea market and thrift store finds, young couples, and country style / farm style afficiandos.
