Bloggers and best-selling authors John and Sherry Petersik have generated an international following as they share the adventures-and misadventures-of renovating an older fixer-upper residence in Richmond, VA.
The couple appears at the show Friday, January 25 with a special presentation for showgoers at 1 p.m. followed by a book signing of their New York Times bestseller, “Young House Love.”
John and Sherry will share some tips and advice on Do-It-Yourself projects that came out of their own home renovations, mistakes and all. Armed with a little bit of know-how and a lot of enthusiasm, they put their creative, common-sense spin on how to make the most of home projects of all sizes.
With millions of unique visitors, “Young House Love” grew from a little blog created to track the progress of the Petersik’s kitchen remodel for friends and family. After nearly five years of putting daily (and twice-daily) posts out there, it grew from a passion and a hobby into an actual job.
Their widely read blog shares with their readers some of the “home-wisdom” learned along the way. Some of the most popular projects include making no-sew curtains, painting kitchen cabinets and refinishing furniture. Other quick tips for the allusion of space and drama include painting a brick fireplace, going bold with built-ins and even raising the shower curtain height.
Show hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Wednesday through Friday (January 23-25); 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday (January 26) and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday (January 27).
