I am very worried about being naff.

yes it is sorry, words full stop are pretty much over I'm afraid.

For me, mildly acceptable in a child's bedroom only. But that's me.

Yes, naff, sorry. Unless you went a bit off piste in which case you could have big fun smile

I think it's been done to death. But it's your home so do it how you like.

Horribly naff.

Out of interest what do you why to write?
I love a bad quote but he comedy would wear thin quite fast

I wanted to have over my bed "Sleep peacefully, God's awake".

Please comment on my other threads about naffness!!!

Yeah, I'm sick of "Love" and "Home Sweet Home" and all that.

Very Linda Barker in the 1990s.

Naff, but we are buying a house and almost every home we see has one, so you are not alone!

If it's in your bedroom and you've no plans to sell or go on Come Dine With Me then do what you like.

Yes, very

I'm naff though and love it

ClashCityRocker Sun 09-Aug-15 08:46:20

If you like it, go for it. Everything's naff sooner or later.

NoArmaniNoPunani Sun 09-Aug-15 08:48:50

I prefer 'shag enthusiastically, god's awake'

NerrSnerr Sun 09-Aug-15 08:55:49

If you like it then go for it. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

Northernlurker Sun 09-Aug-15 08:58:34

Yes it's naff and yes the quote you want is VERY, VERY naff. But it's your room so feel free. Just get the wording on straight!

I have the live, love, laugh one in my kitchen. I do sometimes worry it's naff, but hey ho, it's my wall, I like it.

I was actually looking for a piece of artwork for that particular wall, months and months of looking and finding nothing I liked I stumbled across the stickers for £1.50 or something on Amazon. It'll do until I find something better.

Naff as it comes, however when I decorate my middle child's room he's having a minecraft theme and he's asked for 'eat, sleep, mine' to be on his wall to match his hoodie <sigh>

LeftMyRidingCropInTheMortuary Sun 09-Aug-15 15:49:00

Lol, thanks for the advice, guys!
I have no plans to sell or go on come dine with me.
Or invite any guests into my bedroom...
So I might just DO IT!

WIth your cheery disposition, I think you might just carry it off, OP!

Nice to see someone taking "yup, it's naff" on the chin and saying "what the heck, I like it".

LeftMyRidingCropInTheMortuary Mon 10-Aug-15 12:38:13

Thanks Lavender!

I've just looked on Pinterest and there's lots of examples on there. Do what makes you happy OP. It's your home. Enjoy.

Why do you care if a bunch of internet strangers think its naff or not? If you like it do it.
