There's no place like home!

And that's why we're back. Dare to Repair, Replace & Renovate is the sequel to Dare to Repair, the national bestselling home repair book for women.

In our first book, we taught you how to fix a leaky faucet. In this book, we teach you how to replace it. In our first book, we showed you how to change the direction of ceiling fan blades. In this book, we show you how to install a new fan. We've gone from basic repairs to easy projects that can make your home more comfortable, more beautiful, and more valuable. We will show you how to:

  • Put up a tile backsplash
  • Install a closet system
  • Install a deadbolt lock
  • Replace a medicine cabinet
  • Mount blinds, shades, and shutters
  • Install landscape lighting

And we provide easy, step-by-step instructions so you can get rid of the things in your home that are making you crazy:

  • Ugly chandelier? Gone.
  • Outdated vanity? Out of there.
  • Broken garbage disposal? History.
  • Torn wallpaper? Buh-bye.

Incorporating detailed illustrations with witty and encouraging instructions, Dare to Repair, Replace & Renovate will allow you to turn your project wish list into a can-do list.
