Sherry and John Petersik insist they knew nothing about fixing up a house when they bought their first place in 2006. Since then, they’ve earned their home-renovation chops and a slew of fans who follow their progress through their blog, Young House Love.
Now they’re sharing even more ideas through a book by the same name.
The Petersiks’ goal is to make home improvement less intimidating and expensive while still producing first-class results. In the book, they’ve compiled doable projects and tips designed to give their readers not just ideas, but confidence.
Most of the ideas are their own, but they also tap the talents of guest bloggers such as Ana White of Ana White: Homemaker and Jessica Jones of How About Orange. Even their Chihuahua, Hamburger, makes frequent appearances in the book.
Young House Love: 243 Ways to Paint, Craft, Update & Show Your Home Some Love is published by Artisan Books and sells for $25.95 in hardcover.
