This book is best suited to a complete novice to home projects. The storage solution in most rooms were to reuse glass jars as containers but was said in such a way as if it was a new revelation in each room. The only thing I hadn't thought of was rolling jeans up instead of hanging them. Nicely written though but glad it was a free book!
The stupidest DIYs I may have ever come across. Take an old tire from your yard and turn it into an ottoman. Seriously? Is this a joke? If you have a bunch of tires in your yard, making an ottoman should be one of the last things on your to do list. And I would be remiss if I didn't mention how poorly this ridiculously stupid household hacks book is written. So bad. Don't waste your time with this dreck.
What a lovely book by Ariana Hunter. It's delightful, honest and there's so many nice 'n nifty little things to learn from it. But as she said "big changes can happen from small changes". Organizing your closet can declutter and decorate your room, it'll feel better being there. It can improve your mood and the way you work. The garden is a wonderful place for DIY projects. A DIY cozy garden set in a DIY nook can make a fantastic corner for reading and get together with your friends. No need to spend money or go somewhere else when spending quality time with dear ones. I recommend this book for fun-loving and resourceful individuals who want to learn more and improve their homes and themselves doing DIY stuff.
This is a short book 23 pages of content not counting introduction and conclusion. It has no photos or diagrams one would expect in DIY project book. Some projects are so simple that most people will consider them tips, not project: tip 1 - roll jeans for storage rather the fold them, tip 2 - roll scarves for storage. I was already familiar with most of the useful ideas, some of the odd ideas were new to me but not so appealing. When I was done with the book I was left wanting more useful content.
This 27 page book is a guide to household DIY projects which are briefly explained. However, there are no photographs nor diagrams to guide the reader. Some items used, for instance, paint hangers, used in managing boots, is not familiar. Perhaps this was one of several typos and meant to be " pant" hanger. Most of these hacks can be found in other books.(I have seen them all) or on the web. One particular project was of concern to me due to safety reasons-- using g a chalkboard painted mirror in a child's playroom. Children can easily break a mirror and the potential for a severe injuy is extremely high! It is safer and less expensive to simply paint the wall or use a sheet of luaun (a thin wood) or cardboard.
This is a short book that is fun to read and it opens my eyes to many more options I can try by myself in different parts of my house; it also gives me beautiful ideas on how I can reuse some of the old items at home. I particularly enjoyed the DYI projects for the kitchen space about how to extend kitchen space and create a chalk board where I can make lists, write down recipes, and share notes with my family. For just a little investment, you will so many fun and creative ideas. I loved this.
