Library Journal Review

Using her farmhouse as an example, blogger Fourez (LoveGrowsWild.com) shows how simple, handcrafted items can add a rustic touch to any home. She begins by providing a list of toolbox essentials and a guide that groups projects according to the level of difficulty. The bulk of this volume contains more than 50 projects, with the majority requiring minimal crafting skills; however, others demand a bit more direction than presented in the two-page instructions supplied for each project. Fourez concludes with a list of sources for the design elements in each room. -VERDICT The mass of designs, with straightforward instructions shown in more than 300 color photographs, will give any DIYer plenty of inspiration for adding a country touch to their home. © Copyright 2016.
