This review is from: Young House Love: 243 Ways to Paint, Craft, Update & Show Your Home Some Love (Hardcover)
I am a big fan of their blog, but this book just isn't up to the standards of it. Many reviewers have already mentioned that this isn't really a coffee table book. The quality isn't there. I wouldn't mind, but the book is written like a coffee table book. It's almost entirely based on the images. The descriptions of how to tackle the projects sounds like a summary, missing many key elements. Also, almost half the projects are documented by illustrations, which really aren't helpful in an inspiration book.
I knew buying the book that it would be more about inspiration than how-to, but I still expected some how-to. Hopefully their next book is what this one should have been: a collection of how-to advice on updating your home.
