Content descriptions

Formatted Contents Note:
Rule of thumb : harsh words you need to year -- Do-it-yourself projects (for the average renter or amateur homeowner) -- Kitchens : on a budget -- Bathrooms : temple of doom -- The easy stuff : your living room, bedroom, and if you're living large, your dining room -- Icing on the cake : time to accessorize -- What's the trick? : finding time for these projects (without losing your job, friends, or family).
Summary, etc.:
"Searching for a house or apartment is difficult enough on its own; transforming it into your home is an entirely different story, especially for those who have never lived on their own before. As millennials create their first homes away from home, they are bombarded with constant DIY ideas and articles on social media. Unfortunately, many of the seemingly simple ideas are beyond the average twenty-something's means. Home Improvement Projects for the Busy & Broke aims to give you the knowhow and teach you to decorate your home while staying within your budget, all presented in an engaging and approachable way. Each project is accompanied by a list of tools and materials needed, along with step-by-step instructions. Salway uses her wit and playful personality to describe her journey of renovating and redecorating not only her two-bedroom Williamsburg apartment but also the New York farmhouse she and her husband bought as a major fixer-upper. Just like millennials today, she took on these projects while working a full-time job and sticking to a strict budget-the advice is tried and true! A resource for anyone who is short on time and strapped for cash, Home Improvement Projects for the Busy & Broke will help you turn any space into a unique home you love and are proud to show off"-- Provided by publisher.
