One area that really gets me stumped is HOME DECOR! I am not naturally blessed with the gift of decorating my home to look like the magazines. I can't always decide what will look good.
Our family room is a case in point!! I haven't been able to decide what to put on the walls in our family room so I just haven't put anything on the walls….for over 5 YEARS!!! Yes…you heard me right….we have lived in our current house for almost 6 years now. The walls have NEVER had anything on them!!
My plan has never been to take THAT long to decide what to put up….I think about it regularly. I just don't make a decision and go with it! My husband asked me the other day if we were ever going to put anything up in that room…that is when it hit me how LONG it has been!!! Sad, I know.
The back wall of the room has a small shelf and chair rail type thing that runs the whole length of the wall. It goes all the way over the stairwell to the basement. That makes the upper wall a little more narrow….so that has thrown me off. I will get an idea…then decide I don't like it…or I can't find exactly what I want at the store…you know what I mean.
BUT…with my word of the year being “INTENTIONAL” I have decided that I can't put this off forever. I actually bought some frames last year for this room…now to just get them on the wall.
I guess it boils down to the simple fact….action is better than just doing nothing. I may not love the end result…but at least I will have tried. I can always change the decor (in another 5 years…ha,ha,ha) if I don't like what I create!
So…here is to some accountability! My goal is to get the decor hung up before the end of January and post the pictures!
