I thought I'd share what my daughter scored for me for Christmas
I saw this at a thrift store and mentioned it to her. I did the elbow measure test...I took my arm....measured the depth of the cabinet...came home and placed my fingers against the wall to see if the cabinet passed the elbow test. IT DID! I KNEW she'd probably not go for it....not wanting to get me a gift from a thrift store....but it's what I really wanted! It's a TV cabinet but I wanted it for my computer...I could not STAND looking at all the cords laying around behind my desk.
so now my cords are hidden! I'm going to strip it and paint it white and distress it. I could not wait though. I'm going to throw down drop cloths and paint it right here! My family just gave me "the look". I'm not patient. I had to have everything disassembled and put together on Christmas Morning! Karla had a little bit to do with this though.....my daughter EMAILED her to ask for ideas....Karla gave her some great ones too! (I ended up with a subscription to Romantic Homes!) AND Karla told her about the armoire! So ! Great gift!
Last weekend I was coming home from my moms and noticed a thrift store I'd never seen before. I slammed on the breaks and went in......look what I discovered-
I also found these trees at Michaels for 70% off! I lit the candles and one almost caught fire....well...I mean one almost caused a fire!
My husband showed me a cool program we had on the computer that I can add all these fun words to my pictures! I promise not to abuse the privilege though.
I also just have to show you his decorating skills. He ALWAYS comes along behind me after I've created a little display...and he tweaks it and makes it his own. It's an ongoing joke around here...he tells me I have to "find" what he fixed. You never know what you'll get. I found his Redskins hat displayed on top of my dress form with my wedding dress one time.
I had to point out all the little things he did! I did think the little pink tree on the mirror with the beads was kinda cute. Maybe he is learning a thing or two from me! I was afraid he'd think I was nuts with that footboard thing. He actually liked it and even commented it was already painted "Robin style"!
Hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Years Eve!
