4.0 out of 5 stars Good Beginner Book, November 6, 2012

This review is from: Young House Love: 243 Ways to Paint, Craft, Update & Show Your Home Some Love (Hardcover)
Five star blog, but didn't quite transfer to a 5 star book. For those that religiously follow the blog, (probably most of us getting the book!) it seems like a lot of these ideas you could gain just from watching them do their home projects on their blog or from reading other design blogs. Definitely agree with the reviews of the grainy quality pictures, it does make it seem of a lesser quality of book when compared to books like Decorate and Design Sponge which have crisp, clear pictures. It is a fantastic beginner book for ideas if you are just starting out in the DIY design world, especially in terms of the projects being on the less expensive side (a good thing!), but I was expecting a little bit more in terms of the ideas. Should you get it? Probably, especially if you love the blog. I don't think you will be all that unhappy with it because it is great to have books that contain many clever ideas all together, but don't expect anything that you haven't really seen before.
