  23. I love YHL!! I randomly discovered them when I was looking for tips on how to repaint my kitchen table (my first DIY project) and from there discovered the whole world of DIY home decor blogs. Now I'm obsessed and it has opened up a great accessible way to express my creative juices and make my home more pleasant to live in all at once. I'm always inspired by their projects, so I'd really love a copy of their book.

Their explanations are helpful, and I've referenced the blog a number of times while doing some reno's in my own home.

  59. I've read YHL every day without fail for the past three years - it's my absolute favorite blog for so many reasons: the decorating and design (on a real budget!), their personalities, how they constantly switch things up and change things to make them better even when I thought they couldn't get any better, their DIY tutorials, I could go on and on. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!
