Do It Yourself Books

Two really fun Do It Youself books came out recently from the popular magazine, Do It Yourself. So many fun ideas, and all for the person who loves to tackle the project themselves! First up, Do It Yourself: Kitchens (Better Homes & Gardens Decorating).
Full of inspiring kitchen makeovers for $1,000, $2,500, $5,000 and $10,000. Loads of great before-and-after photos, complete with budget breakdowns, which is really helpful for planning your own makeover. I also loved that the book has space planning tips, and of course, a lot of smaller projects that anyone can do to make their home more personal.

By far my favorite, likely because our kitchen is all made over, is the next book, Do It Yourself: 100+ Paint Projects (Better Homes & Gardens Decorating)!

Talk about tons of fun ideas! I am planning to do some of them very soon. The book has great photos of projects, how to tips on how to choose the right paintbrush for the project, and tips for painting on all kinds of different surfaces. I loved that there were even design templates included in the book. If you are ready to get some creative juices flowing, both of these books will help you do just that!  

*We received copies of both books for this review. As always, my opinion is my own.*
