Before I purchased this book I had virtually no idea how to go about most home improvement projects. This book is great for a beginner. It is divided into some main sections of related projects. Each section discusses the general tools needed for the section. Then it goes into each project such as painting, flooring, repairing a wall, simple electrical, etc. This is a great starter book because projects are easy to understand. It hits on many of projects that you may be planning on doing and can be accomplished by most anyone with a little determination. This is definately a great all-a-round book but the detail is limited - So, for example, if you need to tackle electrical wiring beyond changing a switch, then you should really consider a more specialized book.

Wow--what a great primer for organizing any decorating project in your home! Not only is Decorating 1-2-3 well organized, but it's so easy to use. This book starts out with a solid foundation of color, styles, and design and then walks you through your decorating project one step at a time. Each chapter contains tips from the pros, a list of things you'll need for each task, and absolutely nothing is left to chance. I recommend reading through the book once, then referencing it as needed for future home decorating projects. From novice to experiened DIY, any homeowner can benefit from Decorating 1-2-3.
