I have blank wall phobia!



I know blank wall phobia is not a real condition but it should be! We have been in our house for a year and a half and I am trying to take my time with the decorating and not rush because I want everything to be perfect. I have a thing about blank walls, I don't like them. I am trying to not put up something on every blank wall that we have but the big ones have to have something on them. Well, I have moved onto the dining room! I did a sketch for a painting last night. I can't sleep until I get my ideas on paper. I bought the canvas today, brushes and paint too. I have penciled in the lines on the canvas and I am hoping to find the time to start painting soon. I will certainly do another post as I get working on it.

I look forward to seeing your painting! I hope you'll post a picture when it's done.

LOL, anonymous! I have a phobia of online infomercials. (The theme from Jaws starts playing)

Glad to see that I am not alone, thanks for the advice, and yes I will add pictures while I am working on it!

I know that feeling too! At least your walls are painted. I haven't done that yet and I've been in my new home over 2 years. I'm tired of looking at eggshell color on my walls! Ha!

I know just what you mean! Bare walls look so forlorn and lonely. I'm excited to see what you will come up with!!!
