Perpetual Projects: Doesn't Everybody Have One?

Warning this post is rated: O.K. (for OVER-KILL) 

I'm posting pictures today of my living room AGAIN! 
I didn't know I was such a procrastinator...really. 
...AND! it doesn't help when life gets in the way either. 

I've made changes.  Most are subtle... like the entertainment center-- Remember when the TV was on top?

I've acquired some *new furniture-- like my Grandmother's Glass Hutch. 
I re-arranged wall art and accessories...
I searched for inspiration regarding Billy Bass

I struggled with Lighting... and came to terms with it.

Guest came to stay and the spare bedroom HAD TO BE CLEANED...
... No more procrastinating!
I finally figured out a way to arrange everything with style all my own ...or so I thought!

*************** so Without further Ado ... hem-hawing around... Here's my before and afters.




Thanks to everyone who initially commented ...oh i dunno, about 6 months ago, and contributed insight and comments and much needed encouragement! 
May God Bless all of you!
