Most of you have seen my bedroom a bazillion times by now.
Please bear with me. I had to use this room for what this post is all about. 🙂
When I first decorated this room, I couldn’t believe my nerve.Would I get away with this?!?
I remember the doubtful yet curious comments when just showing the ‘befores’ of the components.
But I went ahead and created what was in my head and posted it anyway.
Nerves of steel I tell ya.
The room was a hit. So I continued to add additional unique components to it hoping they would be equally well received.
Which they were. Right down to this torn sheet lampshade I created in 5 minutes which derived from a need to cover up an otherwise dirty one for a Christmas showing of my home.
And where is this ‘way out there’ bedroom now?

The moral of this story?
If something scares you, try it anyway.
Step slightly out of your comfort zone each day.
Try something you’ve never done before.
Put together something you NEVER think will work. Then make it work.
Beg, borrow and steal from freebie piles with an open mind.
Choose ‘uniquely you’ over copycat decorating.
Create to your heart’s content, no matter what others may think.
Try what’s in your mind. It’s there for a reason.
There aren’t many that desire to take these kinds of risks.
Hence, there isn’t much competition in the risk category. So, why not be one of them? 🙂
