Item description for Budget Makeovers: Give Your Home a New Look by Editors of Woman's Day...
Judging from the wealth of TV programs dedicated to room redos, Americans are mad for home makeovers. The idea of a home makeover is seductive, but not everyone has scads of cash to spend revamping a room. With 200 full-color photos and 50 color illustrations, Budget Makeovers reveals how do-it-yourselfers can attain a professional polish at an affordable price. The book features 12 real-life makeovers, showing how to transform boring or outdated rooms - be they kitchens, baths, family rooms, dining rooms, living rooms, or bedrooms - into fresh, beautiful, and livable spaces. Each room featured includes color before and after photographs (200 in all), a description of how the room was updated, a list of what the owners loved and hated about the space, the tab on how much was spent, and a breakdown of how long each phase of the makeover took. How-to projects specific to each room, valuable trade secrets, decorating shortcuts, full color illustrations, and design ideas are included with each redesign.

Reviews - What do customers think about Budget Makeovers: Give Your Home a New Look?
Creative & stylish but affordable May 19, 2006
I read the book in a day - easy and fun to read. The book is composed of various real-life makeovers for various rooms. Each contains before and after shots as well as information on how the look was achieved, how problems were solved and the final budget tally. I will refer back to this book for ideas from time to time. It's biggest strength is that the ideas are realistic and affordable (but not cheap).

Since the TV crews haven't made it to my house yet, I keep reading these books for tips to transform my home. This one is particularly appealing, since it spells out the costs and time investment for the projects. The sample rooms are in real houses and include living rooms, dirning rooms, kitchens, baths and bedrooms. Good color photos accompany the text.
