Welcome to the final day of my series.
If you missed the previous posts in the series this week, you can catch up on all of them:
For this post, I am highlighting some amazing room makeovers from Myquillyn aka The Nester.  She has been renting for 7 years. If you take a look at her blog, Nesting Place, you’ll see that her motto is “it doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful”. I need to adopt this motto pronto.
At first glance, her gorgeous house may seem like it just cannot be a rental. Oh but it is. She has done such a great job decorating it that her home has been featured in Better Homes & Gardens DIY Magazine, Ladies Home Journal, Cottages and Bungalows and this Christmas will be in Better Homes & Gardens Christmas Ideas.

Here are some of my favorite rooms in her house with links to full tutorials showing how she updated each one.

I don’t know about you, but after seeing all the amazing inspiration this week, I am so motivated to start some makeovers in my own house. 
Thanks for reading this week!
Let’s Keep in Touch!
