We all love to update our kitchens from time to time, and this book has so many DIY guides.  Do not hire someone to do something that you can complete yourself with the help offered in this book written by a name we have grown to love and trust, Better Homes and Gardens.  It is fabulous, and I thoroughly enjoyed the ideas. Above are just a few of the images in the book which has 192 pages.

Great ideas. I will have to get the book. I wish I had more energy to do DIYs. I have so many ideas and no time or extra energy. A girl can dream!

This is great! I wish I was handy... Not even books can really help me! :-) I can paint, but that's it. :-)

Did you have a good weekend?

Have a blessed week!
