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.


Ps. August Home, you really need to get on the social media bandwagon. Use your Twitter Account, Facebook Page and DIY-Decor Bloggers like me!  No need to sell me, I love you already and use your products. I make a great partnerships :)

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?
