How You Can See My Fear of Commitment

I have a lot of blank, undecorated walls in this house, because what if I pick a wrong, ugly, unfortunate décor? This is a very specific fear. I have no qualms about designing or selecting elaborate ballgowns. Furniture is fine too. SwingDaddy and I can choose tile, tile trim, paint color, and fixtures for an entire bathroom over one lunch hour. But how should I decorate the boys' bedrooms?

Momma to LG painted this great graphic on her daughter's wall, but paint is so . . . permanent. (Yes, I know you can just paint over it, but bear with me for a moment.) So I found these cool wall decals on a site titled, "Blik. Wall graphics for the commitment phobic."

That completely describes me. I found an airplane and alphabet design that might work.

In fact, I thought I had ordered them, but as it turns out, even removable wall decals were too much of a commitment. Until today. Her Bad Mother and Sweetney launched their new shopping site, We Covet, and they linked to the mother of all wall decal posts on Real Simple. Through them, I found the perfect design for Q's wall.

Yes!

I love, love, love wall decals. The kids' rooms would be absolutely blank if it weren't for them.

That's a great decal you chose for Q.

Even as a not-a-commitment-phobe abotu decorating, I'm considering wall decals for The Bun's room. Ironically, though, I'm more indecisive about the decals, because if I paint something and I don't love it later, oh well, but if I order something and I don't love it later, it has cost me. Hence I tend to just paint. Saw a cool tree design on a Toronto deisgn show last night I might hijack for my own purposes...

First I started with wall decals because of the kids' rooms, then it spread to the bathrooms and finally it's all over the place!
