FOR YOUR HOME is a half-hour home and garden program hosted by do-it- yourself expert Vicki Payne and daughter Sloan Payne-Rutter. FYH features step-by-step instructions for home enhancing projects that bring out one's individual style and personality. Because of its breadth of topics -- covering creative concepts in home decorating, remodeling and gardening -- this magazine-formatted program is the perfect complement to (or replacement for) other more niche-targeted programs. Its mission is to give viewers a whole range of practical, easy-to-understand, and do-able information "For Your Home."
