Young House Love: a bushel of DIY ideas

A review copy of Young House Love just arrived. It's John and Sherry Petersik's labor of love, stuffed with 243 marvelously doable project ideas for the home. You might be a reader of their blog by the same name. Those two are funny, warm, and completely endearing. So is the book.

Each project gives you a heads-up on the cost, time involved, and how much sweat you'll work up while attempting it.

I loved this idea: take apart a couple of inexpensive Lack tables from IKEA and assemble them into a shiny headboard.

Turn plain canisters into periodic table glassware with a fun etching project.

Get ideas for things you can use to make an interesting backsplash in your kitchen (removable for renters, if needed). I should do this. Our wee kitchen has only painted walls where stuff gets splashed Jackson Pollock-style.

Some projects from guest contributors are sprinkled throughout the book, too. Hey, there's our door.

You can buy the book here at Amazon. And to see what happens to your house when you make a book, check out Sherry and John's awesome behind-the-scenes post!
