the dead living room come back to life

Also known as the "living room redo". You know the one I mentioned in the last post? You may not remember - that was after all a MONTH ago! Yeah, I know, but remember "she" is old and moves slow in comparison to me. Poor thing. "She" claims there's not been the time to turn on the computer so that I could post. Um, sure.....seriously?!?

But I won't complain - I am still fed well and the living room is looking better. Almost like someone lives here.

Yes, there is still the matter of the furniture. For now the cushions are turned over so that "she" doesn't have to look at the modern multi-colored pattern. Most definitely not my style. Nor "hers". So that only leaves one person who could possibly have liked it. Don't worry Dad, I won't tell them it was you.

No matter. Eventually, they will be gone and I will have something else to lounge on. They just haven't found the perfect pair of chairs and love seat, but the search is still on.

The rooms in this house are rather small and the living room is no exception, therefore the furniture will have to be smaller than a bus. A hard choice for "her" because "she" is partial to that big massive stuff. Probably why when buying for the tattered cat, the biggest and heaviest pieces are chosen. Should sign "her" up for FFAA - Fat Furniture Addiction Anonymous.

Anyway, rather than wait another lifetime to show you the totally finished living room, I thought I would share with you the major wall change. Here is a before picture, taken at Christmas time (duh right - like that tree would be there any other time):

Note too, on the picture above, the pattern on the sofa pillows....

And here is the living room today:

Yep, I know quite a difference. And you may not like it. That's okay. Really. "She" does "her" own thing and doesn't expect everyone or anyone for that matter to like it.

So knowing that, I have scattered some close up pictures of the vignettes throughout this post - hoping of course that will soothe your fur a bit. You know that theory that states 'small doses are easier to handle'.....because I wouldn't want you to leave me with your fur standing on end and whiskers all a whack.

As for when will the living room be finished?

Those of you who love to "fluff", you know that a room is never ever finished.....because there is always something that might look better over there and this over here....and oh I found a new piece of furniture.....those of you who don't "fluff", you get the picture right?

Hoping you are having a great week! It was beautiful here today - a purrfect day for sunning my whiskers and warming the pads of my toes!

P.S. - A special thank mew to all my new followers! I am honored and humbled that you have chosen to follow me. I am content, therefore I purr......
