Cure For Decorating Dread

With the impending arrival of the next offspring in our household we are reaching that joyous point where it is time to forge an acceptable living space for it. I enjoy renovating and all manner of household repair but for some reason the circuit in my brain that handles the painting and papering is broken. I find more joy in a Lawrence Welk marathon or perhaps being the victim of extreme dentistry(My teeth don't look bad do they?).

I have found a way to keep even the lives of me interested in decorating though. Stomach the painting long enough and you can buy a whole manner of stickers for your walls to make it suit your lifestyle or mood. Blik Surface Graphics makes decals for the walls of your home that can give you all the detail and beauty of stenciling without the hair removal that follows when you get your stenciling all smudgy and misaligned.

The wife won't go for my personal choice for the new nursery but I can try to get her to see it my way. Or maybe I'll just wait till she's out and put it up anyway. If you're like me and do something this suicidal, or maybe you have the attention span that TV networks clamor for, then you will be delighted to find that it is all removable so that you can replace it with a different style when you grow weary of your fashion sense (Or when your wife stores footwear somewhere unpleasant).

If you have a favourite piece of writing you'd love to see in huge print, or maybe a blog entry you'd love to throw in the world's face, then you can check this one out. As a married man I am very nervous about letting the wife stick large letters on the wall. Imagine the honey-do lists you'd get then. THAT SINK IS STILL LEAKING FATHEAD!! in one foot tall letters on the wall beside the bed! EEK!

Once you've wrought havoc upon the interior of your home you can move on to all manner of object with their surface decals for everything else that you want to tag. Personally most of my tattered crap could benefit from a little blik-bling. I'm thinking there are many fun, marriage endangering applications to this product that the creators haven't thought through. Then fun I can have.......

Okay, I have to have some of those. So cool! Maybe I can use them to cover up the portion of my kitchen that I still haven't finished painting.

Funny post! My cats always run and hide when I read your posts because I burst out laughing when they least expect it.

My daughter is going to love those bliks.

Your teeth look fine but your head looks awful!

Oh, that is SO funny...

You could do what my husband does and say "That's YOUR department".

Actually maybe I'll send him to your blog and he'll hire you to come and decorate our nursery for him since you are so experienced. Of course, then we'd end up with space invaders on the baby's wall. :)
