Centsational Girl Blog Swap!

22 September 2010

Hey Remodelaholic fans, I’m proud to be here today visiting with all of you.  I’m out of town, and Cassity is guesting on my blog today, so were talking about projects we’ve tackled at home. 

My name is Kate a.k.a Centsational Girl, and I’m lawyer turned DIY blogger living in Northern California.  I’m what I call an incurable DIYer ~ if I don’t know how to do something, well I just teach myself.  My husband and I have been remodeling spaces for years and even survived a huge home expansion a few years ago where we acted as our own general contractor.  Ever since that sawdust settled, I've been busily engaging in all sorts of DIY adventures in decorating, crafting, cooking and home improvement.  I hope you’ll follow along! 

I really like to build stuff, especially things I think are overpriced that I can recreate myself, like this laundry room drying rack.  For years, I had wanted the Ballard Designs version, but then I just decided to make it myself ! 


My most favorite thing is rescuing a sad piece from a thrift store or Craigslist, like this chair I repainted and reupholstered.  It was yellowed and awful until it was saved.  




I’m a crafter too.  I wander the aisles of hardware and craft stores and try out new products all the time, like the silver leaf on this lamp, or the Mod Podge used to create artwork, or the silicone I found to attach sparkly beads to a wine glass.


I can get myself into trouble in the kitchen too, but all’s well that ends well with these adventures in candy making where I taught myself how to make salted caramels.



Mostly, you’ll find me teaching myself how to do things that many others simply hire out, like hanging grasscloth wallpaper or installing wainscoting on our walls. 



Thanks so much Cassity for letting me guest today !  Hop on over to my blog to see what Cassity has to share!
