The paint is dry, baseboards are going in Saturday, I think, and it's time to start the fun stuff! I dropped my boys off at church this afternoon at 5:15 for Bible Quiz practice (they memorize scripture and travel to other churches in our conference to compete) and their first Wednesday night program for the year. I had almost three hours before I needed to pick them up, and I was so tired I almost went home, which is about 15 miles one way, but I decided to go inspiration (window) shopping instead. It's not often I get to do that by myself.
I went to Home Depot, got some ideas, but bought nothing. Same thing in JoAnn's, except no inspiration. Our JoAnn's store is pathetic. Sorry JoAnn's, I love your big store downstate, but you could do a lot better in Alpena!
Then I hit Big Lots, and oh my did I get inspired! I love their clearance aisle, although you have to check often, as there is usually a lot of junk, and often broken junk at that. But tonight I scored 4 major pieces for Jared's room, at rock bottom prices. Of course they will need total makeovers...but that's the fun of it!
My last stop was at Tractor Supply. Stop laughing! I got a curtain "rod" for about $9, and you will never guess what is was.
I'm so excited I could nearly bust. Do you get like that when inspiration strikes? Here's a teaser photo of some of the things that will be going into his room, before their transformation.
Sorry to be a tease, but I hope you think the wait will be worth it. I'm at T minus 14 days for the next Gitter Done project post. So much to do, so little time!
