{Guest Post} Kate at Centsational Girl

Today marks the final day of this fun series. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as me, and discovered some new blogs along the way. Blogging has become such a blessing in my life, as I’ve met the most inspiring, talented and kind-hearted people….and all on the internets!

I was honored to have such a lineup of stellar bloggers for this series, and it’s only fitting to end with the Grand Puba herself….Kate from Centsational Girl! Her blog was one of the first I fell for (and fell hard!), and my head almost popped off when she featured my son’s room on her blog. Her projects are impeccable and affordable, and her tutorials easy to understand and follow. She has helped to instill in me the power and satisfaction of Doing-It-Myself!


Hi all, it’s me Kate, visiting today at Cassie’s place. Please excuse me while I take off my shoes and kick up my feet on her coffee table. Just makin’ myself at home! Heh heh. I’m a little tired cause I’ve been busy!  2010 brought three new favorite spaces to my place. Here are my three favorite room makeovers from last year, filled top to bottom with all sorts of DIY projects.  Enjoy!

Thanks Kate!! I loved the rooms then, and even more now!

Thank you to all the fabulous bloggers that shared their time and projects with us during this Best of the Best series! We are so inspired by you and can’t wait to see what projects you accomplish in 2011!
