This review is from: Young House Love: 243 Ways to Paint, Craft, Update & Show Your Home Some Love (Hardcover)
As a longtime follower of younghouselove.com, I eagerly bought the book. However, I love YHL for the large-scale home transformations such as their former home's bathroom renovation.
I was hoping this book would provide more insight into similar, larger scale, more permanent projects: how they chose their homes and why, the process they go through, step by step, in a reno project, tips for those also updating older homes etc. This book just does not contain this sought after info.
Instead, the book offers many "crafty" projects ranging from not-so-great to really clever. I think it's telling that many of the projects were said to be gifted or donated, only a few were kept by the authors.
I'm glad I own it, but I think of it more as "fan gear" for a blog I love than a truly useful guide for my home.
