Hello there.  So glad you’d love to talk to me!

Got a question about a DIY project you’re working on?  Well, I’m honored you’d think to ask me! Have you browsed the Project Gallery for the answer?  It’s there you’ll find all of the things I’ve ever written from how to paint furniture to my basic instructions on how to install board and batten, your answer may be there in the archives. And be sure to browse the relevant categories at Best of DIY where you’ll find over 1,000 fantastic DIY projects and ideas to inspire you!

Want me to feature your latest and greatest project? I love showing off innovative talented folks like you, and I do it with a team of contributors in biweekly series called ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ and also feature them at Best of DIY.  Feel free to send your link to bestoftheblogosphere[at] for consideration!

Are you interested in becoming a sponsor?  Review all information on my sponsor page, then please fill out the new sponsor query.

Want to submit a guest post to this site?  I have a few guidelines, so please review my blog policies for more details.

Are you looking for decorating advice on a space you’re struggling with?  So flattered you’d think of me! At this time, I do not offer decorating services. I’ve written many articles on decorating and also answered several reader questions under the ‘Ask Kate’ category. If you don’t see your question answered there, or if you have a design dilemma that others may share, feel free to suggest a topic to me with an image or two, I’m always looking to write about material that will help readers {that means you!}.

Please note, I receive over 100 emails per day, so response times to contact via email will vary, and it may not be possible to answer all inquiries, but best efforts will be made! Irrelevant product pitches, mass audience emails, and press releases will likely go unanswered, sorry. If you just want to get social, find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest too!

If the above didn’t answer your questions, or you just want to send me a kind note {I love those most of all} please do send it my way to centsationalgirl[at] Whew, that was a mouthful.  That said, here’s my email contact once more:  centsationalgirl[at] or you can simply fill out this form:
