The Martha manual : how to do (almost) everything

Stewart, Martha (author.).

Summary: "Martha Stewart is America's go-to source for organizing, celebrating, cleaning, decorating, and any number of other life skills. Whether it's setting the table, carving a pumpkin, or fixing a leaky faucet, these are the time-tested, Martha-approved strategies for frequent challenges and basic how-to knowledge that everyone should have at the ready. Also included are plenty of solutions for not-so-common conundrums, such as how to reupholster a chair or even groom a cat. With hundreds of expert tips and useful insights, this manual will show you how to do (almost) everything--the Martha way."--Back cover.
