I have to say it took me a little while to warm up to Pinterest, it wasn't that I didn't like it, I just kept forgetting about it. But as I've learned how to navigate it better I have become kind of addicted. It is a super awesome place for eye candy and inspiration.
You already know this.
How do I know?
Because you have also spent too much time pinning and re-pinning away an hour when you just meant to check your email for 5 minutes.
I know how it goes... it's a time sucking monster.
But being a time sucker is not my real problem with Pinterst. My problem is all of the inspirational lovely-ness causes me to be indecisive.

I start questioning my current monochromatic redecorating plan... am I doing it in neutrals because I won't have to paint a room with a vaulted ceiling? Because I already had some neutral bedding and decor? Because it's "safe"?
Pinterest is making me a bit indecisive and slowing me down.
It's not Pinterest's fault, it's mine.
It's not like this didn't happen before Pinterest, it did.... when I'd come across a great room on a blog or HGTV or BHG or even a great piece in TJ Maxx. I'm just easily distracted by beautiful decor, I can't help but want to recreate it and put my own Chic on a Shoestring Decorating spin on it.
Pinterest makes me want to decorate
Am I going to give it up because of the Pinterest problem?
No. Stinking. Way.
How about you... do you play the second-guessing game when you're decorating? Has Pinterest made it worse (or am I just a crazy person)? Yes, I know I'm kind of a crazy person but that's why you read this, right?!
