Hi LBD'ers, Beth here from designPOST interiors and I am so happy to be guesting here on Elizabeth's blog! Not only can I unload a dirty little secret, but I also get to virtually hang with one of my favorite bloggers out there! I am always anxiously awaiting Elizabeth's next project and she never disappoints!
Ok, so confession time. There are so many weird habits I could confess to but I am going to try to keep it relatively normal. At least I hope it's kind of normal? I have major procrastination issues when it comes to my own home decor. I have tons of end visions and half-started projects but somehow other things always get in the way...client work, kids, The Real Housewives, life. I recently had a client casually say, "I should just come to your house and get ideas" to which I promptly had a panic attack. The thought of being judged as a "decorator" based on my own house scares me a majority of the time.
Part two of my fess up is that the only time things do get done around here is when I have some kind of big event coming up. The last time I tackled all of my half-done projects was right before my daughter was born last November. And now her first birthday is rolling around and I am suddenly unstoppable. My husband loves this about me, by the way (sarcasm, sarcasm). In the last two weeks I have literally finished: painting and recovering 5 chairs- all rescued from the trash or Goodwill and all have been sitting around unfinished for months, hung 2 sets of curtains, hung a gallery wall, painted some frames, and found a lamp shade for a lamp that's been naked since it's purchase. No lie!
I am exhausted and probably won't have the energy to finish another one of my projects for another 6 months. And the cycle continues....
Thanks for letting me come to your confessional Elizabeth - I feel 10 pounds lighter!
It looks like I'm not the only one who works best under the gun. I love the chair Beth!
So tell me, do you wait until the last minute? Is a ticking clock a good motivator? Does anyone else wish we really could loose 10 pounds by fessing up?
