I am not a person that is really that big on redecorating. I mean I like the idea but I don't really have the will power to want to do something I see in a magazine. Yet, I still like to read articles and get ideas. Wow, this book was really good. The author wrote everything in easy, understandable language and in organized fashion. I like that the author really did her research. She listed out all the different items that I would need to pick up at any hardware store. Which I like as some books list items that I have never heard of and are costly. The author was thinking of her readers being on a budget. So she was very thoughtful in this way. No hiring a contractor. All I need are my own two hands, some money, and time. If anything after reading this book, I was very inspired to start reorganizing my kitchen. I realized that I am not using it to the fullest potential. I see an upcoming weekend project for me to do.
