Crisann, you made it thru another round!!! (I did the last round with you and did get a lot done, but really haven't been doing as much sbing lately so just couldn't do this round.) You're an angel for guiding everyone thru again. Congratulations to all of you who took the challenge this time - it's a lot of work, but well worth it.
Hope you all got your porch project under way - shoot, you're probably done with it by now. You have all that youth and energy going on.....

Thanks Crisann for guiding us through. My space is so much better organized now and I don't think anything needs to change again until we move when we retire in the next year or two. Hoping then to have an entire room and not just the corner of one!!
My favorite decor item(s) are a framed page and 2 smaller framed cards that are over my shelving unit. I made the page and a matching one to celebrate 40 years of friendship with my best friend. One of the cards is made by that same friend and the other I made to compliment it.
I will try to get some updated photos posted, it is dark and raining here today so they won't come out too well if I try now.

Thank you so much for doing this. I'm at the make-it-pretty stage and I'm very stuck. I have the Galant desks and some cabinets, the M's cubes and a big armoire that is sort of a darker cherry. So, the wood is an ecclectic mix, but I need to make it pop. My walls are a sage green w/a light purpleish trim around the windows and door. I'll be looking at this thread all day. I just can't seem to make it pop and it's driving me nuts.
I'd like to help you out. Which way did you come in?

Although I wasn't able to participate as much as I wanted due to helath issues that kept me off computer and out of scrap room for many weeks...I can happily say that I have managed to transform my space and stuff with much help from dh and dd21! Thanks so much for this weekly burst of inspiration, Crisann!
My room is very plain right now, so focusing on pretties will be a good thing for me. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait until mid-June to have time/money/energy to do it--hosting a grad open house for younger dd on June 16, and right now everything's directed toward that!
My fave decorative item? I'll pick one from my scrap space for now. Years ago I made a clock with photos of my family on the face, using Daisy D's Girlfriends line. Those are my favorite colors, and I love that clock. It's been on my craft room wall for years. In my re-vamped space, I intend to use it on the main accent wall (the only one not broken up by furniture/shelves) and use the paper I've saved (yes, I have the whole line still!) to create highlighted words in a quote I'll mostly cut in vinyl. The quote is "Life is too important to be taken seriously" by Oscar Wilde. The photos on the clock are of my family laughing and enjoying their favorite activities. I've been planning this wall in my head for a very long time!
