I feel mean giving this just three stars, as the book achieves what it sets out to do ~ that is, offering tonnes of ideas for small(ish) projects to beautify your home at low cost. So if stand-alone ideas are what you're seeking, be sure to check out this book. John and Sherry are clearly talented, creative and hard-working, and they deserve every success.

But... from their blog and the before/after pics of their own home, I believe their unique talent is in complete space transformations, or at the very least, taking whole rooms from 'OK' to 'Wow'. Other bloggers can (and do) provide information on how to paint a single chair or make paint chips into art: I would have liked to have seen this pair given a bigger 'canvas' with which to work. Since the Petersiks already had such a huge following before the book came out - causing queues round the block at their book signings - I was disappointed the publisher didn't offer them the budget to makeover entire rooms. Perhaps we can hope to see that in book number two? If so, I'll be happy to get in line. ( )
