Publisher Comments:

From the beloved and sexy carpenter on The Learning Channel's Trading Spaces comes a creative, fun, and practical how-to book for home repair and improvement projects.

Home improvement heartthrob Ty Pennington fuses carpentry with style in this practical and inspirational how-to book for tackling household projects both large and small — from decorating to home repair. Pennington shares the expertise gained from his years of experience as one of the carpenters on The Learning Channel's Trading Spaces and as a home renovation pro to create an accessible guide to eclectic decorating and renovation.

Ty gives readers a sneak peek at some of the projects he's done in his own home and shows how they can be recreated. He also gives readers the lowdown on great tools — and provides a list of his favorite cheap and easy ways to transform any room.

Filled with helpful tips, this inspirational book will help readers to explore their own personal style while building their confidence at the same time. It is a one-of-a-kind, fun, user-friendly guide, from a trusted and admired source.

Tips and techniques from Ty are included throughout the book to help readers solve minor and major repair projects — including helpful advice on:

  • Home Evaluation: The questions, plans, and checklists you need before you start
  • Painting: The secrets of the pros for fast, easy painting
  • Lighting: Bright ideas for making your own lamps using unusual parts
  • Flooring: Fast, frugal ways you can fix it or re-floor it
  • Walls: Time-saving tips from finding a stud to applying the mud
  • Contracting: How to hire the pros and avoid the cons
Also included is a sneak peek into Ty's home, featuring projects that you can recreate in you own home, and Ty's Top Ten tools.
