Do Over

I have been sooo careful about purchasing anything. When you go to a thrist store and you see

This large shelf, what is one to do??? First...look it over...then think, I've seen this in antique stores for a lot of money, and then.....look at the was marked down from 14.99 I paid....are you ready...$8.00

It was stained, solid wood.
Home Depot carries Martha Stewerts paints now
and I found the exact color I needed.
I did a do over (aka - make over)
I have to call it a do over because this week is
"D" over at Jenny Matlocks class.
check it out at
Show and Tell Friday

Some things are not meant to pass up...I think you would have kicked yourself if this didn't come home with you. Love the do over. Patty

Oh my goodness, you paid 8 dollars? And I love the bead board that you put in behind! Such a beautiful cupboardy thing.
