Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Got a couple of free days? "52 Weekend Makeovers" has some suggestions for what to do with them. The book offers a year's worth of ideas for improving the inside and outside of your home - projects such as building a mantel, installing a wainscot, painting a room and tiling a floor. In fairness, some might take most do-it-yourselfers more than one weekend, but the instructions are simple enough that people without a great deal of home-improvement skill should be able to follow them. Included are some useful tidbits, such as information on helpful tools and warnings about what could go wrong. "—Akron Beacon Journal"
