Have you noticed? Noticed that there have been quite a lot of bloggers writing books lately, not just e-books, but hold in your hands and display on your coffee table kind of books.
It is so exciting for me when I see the books on the bookstore shelves and get to say….
…I know her!!!
That is the case with my blogging buddy, Karah from The Space Between who wrote DIY Wood Pallet Projects, 35 Rustic Modern Upcycling Ideas to Personalize Your Space.
She can now add published author to her resume!
I met Karah at a blog conference a few years ago. I remember immediately enjoying her company and wanting to know everything about her island life and what she did to her Caribbean home. She now lives in Key West.
Then back in May, she was one of my buddies who went on our girls trip to Anna Maria Island.
Her book is a reflection of her laid back beach style.
If you have been to Karah’s blog then you know she has skills …skills with power tools to transform a run down space into a desirable home. She also has impressive skills with a wood pallet and turns them into swoon worthy decorative accessories and furnishings, even holiday decorations.
She walks you through everything you need to know about pallets from finding them to cleaning and taking them apart safely and then shows you how to make 35 creative budget friendly ways to upcycle the wood into beautiful projects that will help fill your home and yard with style and personality.
If you’ve never picked up a power tool or even a pallet, don’t worry. The easy, step-by-step instructions guide you through the entire woodworking process as you recreate your own works of art.
My favorite projects are this wine rack, a dog bed – (she has two very cute dogs, Marley and Mico), and the full length mirror frame that looks like it came from Restoration Hardware. Oooohhhh! and the hanging bed!!! Dreamy!
The book is available on Amazon and makes a perfect holiday gift for your DIY loving buddies. Would you like to win a copy? I have one to give away.
