*My Review*
After I requested this book as my next book to review, I got curious and looked up reviews on amazon for this book. Those reviews weren't all pleasant...& I was actually a little worried that I wouldn't like the book myself. Well, After looking through the book myself...I saw several things I liked about the book.  I liked the way the contents page(s) looked(See picture below). 
I also like the way things are sectioned off and listed for the different rooms of the house.
There are several things in the book that I WON'T make/do because it looks "homemade"...but that's because this book is all about DIY decoration. My favorite part of this book is probably the "Playrooms" section. There were several things in this part that I can't wait to make for my three girls.My favorite I personally am still happy with this book, but it's not something I would have paid money for. So, If you like to do DIY decor, then maybe you would like this book! 

I received this book for free from Blogging for books in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to post a positive review.
