When DIY Dorks and Bookworms Collide

Sherry and John Petersik are one of those likable young couples that drives you nuts. Not only are they hopelessly photogenic (and charmingly self-deprecating) but they’ve managed to turn their love of fixing up their old house into a bankable career. The self-described “DIY dorks” will be in Fort Lauderdale on Thursday for a book signing and discussion of their recently released guide to home décor, Young House Love: 243 Ways to Paint, Craft, Update & Show Your Home Some Love. The book, based off their wildly successful blog Young House Love, explores budget-friendly projects both big and small. The book talk and signing is 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday inside Books & Books in the Museum of Art|Fort Lauderdale, located at 1 E. Las Olas Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. There’s no cost to attend. A copy of the book can be prepurchased for $25.95. Call 954-262-0255, or visit booksandbooks.com.
