In Blog Love with Young House Love

We’ve Got a Blog Crush…

Young House Love is a blog by a DIY couple, Sherry and John, who have transformed their home one step at a time while on a budget. After four and a half years of dedicated renovation they have moved – and are going to start the design process all over again. They are beautifying the world one house at a time.

Here’s a Peek at Some of Our Favorite Posts:

Don’t worry, no butterflies were harmed in the making of this artwork. Much as they come to life, these faux-butterflies were made from a print-out. In a shadowbox, they create a sophisticated yet whimsical piece of art. They look so realistic they could fool just about anyone.

Sherry and John show how they refinished a Veneer Dresser and turned a $20 Craigslist bargain into a timeless piece of furniture. Sometimes all you need is a little paint to really spruce something up. The dark color of the stain added a gorgeous, rich color to the dresser that looks fantastic.

Would you believe that these beautiful built-in bookcases were a DIY project that only cost $10? After arranging the shelving and figuring out the design, Sherry and John painted the back of the bookcase for a pop of color. With the bargain knick-knacks they found to furnish the shelves, their room took on a total transformation.
