My home before and after (but forever being redone)..I love changes.


When I first moved in I didn't have much of anything, so I worked with what I had to try to make it nice. I have put a lot of time and effort into it so far and am finally getting there...:)
my humble living room before..I even did my own 4x4 paintings to brighten the place up.
another shot of the before living room with another of my paintings.
This grouping has replaced one of my paintings in the living room so far..
My $45 entertainment center..I hung paper Chinese lanterns behind the tv (they light up)placed my candle holders ( I made out of bird feeders) on top and added another picture grouping.
The final grouping in progress....total cost so far... $78 (not including the tv)

    I sell it private if people want to buy it or have me do them a painting of their choice. I get them done and ready to go usually within a couple of hours.

    I love changes too as did my mother and 2 of my 3 sisters, as for the 7 of the 8 boys they could live with the same "stuff" for the rest of their lives. I guess that's like most men, men and then there are the other kind of men who really know how to decorate and redecorate. I wish I had one of the latter living near me. I love hometalk! One gets so many ideas from other followers. "E"
