Happy Tuesday! I'm taking a week break from work and I am getting loads on my to do list crossed off. It's amazing what 7 hours of no work and my daughter sent off to school will give me: precious alone time. I am definitely taking advantage of it.
Did I ever tell you how much I love HomeGoods? Did I? Did I? Oh yeah, I have...plenty of times. Well, let me tell you again - I LOVE HOMEGOODS! It seems I never walk out of that store empty handed. During my last trip, I snatched up this baby before anyone else can see the unbelievable clearance tag attached to it.
I whistled and sang some happy "I just scored the best deal ever" tunes during my drive back home. As I set her down inside the house, I saw this:
A humungo chunk of glass was missing from the bottom drawer!!! Whhhaaaaaat??? By the time realization had set, I was fuming and bewilderedly yelling, "I can't afford to have that drawer face replaced!" (It's about a hundred bucks around here, kiddos - no joke) "I can't fix that myself!"...or could I?
I had a light bulb moment and decided not to sweat the minor detail any longer.
Do you remember my Executive Desk Makeover? I used a paintable wallpaper by Allen & Roth to cover up all the ugly. I decided this is what's going to save that side table from being smashed into tiny bits from my frustration.
|56 sq ft for $17 at Lowes.|
I decided on covering all the drawer faces with this fabulous design. I still have tons of this wallpaper left over from my desk project and I only needed to use a small portion of it.
|Yes, I did this while watching some HGTV in my Living Room|
After some careful consideration, I opted to keep the wallpaper white.
|This took approximately 30 minutes from start to finish.|
Now I can continue onto my happy dance...
