WDCP or wall-decor-commitment-phobia
My head is easily turned by pretty things and perhaps this is why I have a fear of commitment when it comes to pounding nails into walls. Especially walls that I myself have primed and painted, which is 99% of them and is a job I do not really enjoy. I'm reminded of this confirmed-wall-bachelorette status each time I purchase wall art and must decide where it will hang.
Some proof. Take note of the various things decorating this wall of the Girlie Office.
A few things are hung using painters tape, one bulletin board holds both a clock and a calendar, and just last night I hung a birdcage memory board by tying it to a light fixture.
The same fixture that is embellished with magnets. So to borrow a concept from comedian Jeff Foxworthy, if you do some of the following, you might just be wall-decor-commitment-phobic, too.
Do you hang art with removable hooks (left)? Do you frame fabric rather than cutting it?
Do you use tension rods? Adjustable bookcases?
Do you prop art on ledges rather than hang it?
Do you frame wallpaper rather than adhering it permanently?
Because if you do, you just might be WDCP (wall-decor-commitment-phobic) and I understand.
