My Home My Style

I actually could have done without the cheesy models on the cover!


I love receiving "Premier Issues". I love Decor Magazine & Books. My name is Beachbrights and I am a Decor Book-Aholic.

I signed up to receive this complimentary issue of My Home My Style. I am a big fan of Work Bench Magazine (you can read my Going Green Spotlight) which is published under the same group, August Home. I love a magazine that gives you great ideas, basic instructions and is simple to follow. I guess you could say I am a sucker for an easy DIY project.

There are not a lot of bells & whistles in this magazine. The illustrations are helpful, materials list are resourceful and there are no advertisements. I can't figure this last one out but I like it!

Here are a couple of the projects that got my attention:

Cute "fold away" table.

I love projects that make life easier!

Here is an example of how the instructions are laid out. This is for turning a door into a desk. I did this project here (without the tutorial).

This is an inexpensive project ($20 or less). I love how they used PVC pipe to create this wine bottle holder. Brilliant!

Again, a project that is practical and makes life easier. This is a very DOABLE project for all skill levels.

As you can see there is really something for everyone and every budget. The magazine has 63 pages without advertisements.

XOXO-

Love the little mudroom. :) I love magazines and books like this, and I agree--the models were overkill. ;) Stop by if you have a chance today. I have a Giveaway going on for my new look. :)

Thanks for sharing this. I just ordered a free copy too. Wonder how they are doing it with no advertising?
