Color, Color, Color!

Because I like to decorate with lots of color, and because I like to take decorating risks, at some point, I almost always think, "What on earth have I done?!?!"

And this room was no exception.


Although, I don't think that now that I've got two coats up --- I can see the end. But, I was thinking that when I had half of a first coat on, and was shocked by the brightness of the blue every time I walked into the room.

But I held on to my britches, because I've been through this enough times to know that if I just finish through to the end, I'll be pretty happy with the result. 

It was also comforting to read this post by the pros at Young House Love, and see that the same thing happens to them too.


I'm also a firm believer in the fact that you can really make almost anything work --- with enough tweaking, styling, etc., and that may be the reason that I don't stress too much about my decisions, I just pick something I like, and move forward. The process will come out alright in the end.

Plus, I do this for fun, and stress just isn't fun.


What about you guys? Do you ever wonder if you've made a huge mistake? Or does fear of a mistake keep you from doing anything?
