Just Giddy!

Between Yesterday and this morning I have been having awesome luck!
The boys and I went to HomeGoods yesterday after school and I was able to purchase a few of these damask print curtain panels. They have had them for the past few weeks and I looked at them every time I went in there. I just could not decide if I wanted them or not but yesterday since there were only a few left they had to come home with us. I have an idea in my head on what I want to do with them but you will have to just wait!;)

Then I was thrilled when we went down the linen isle and saw these french tea towel sets! I just loved them to pieces and actually purchased several of each.

Though both of those finds were great this mornings find beats them out by a land slide!! I have been trying to hunt down my next piece to refinish. I am VERY picky on what I purchase and also sometimes I am not quick enough to get pieces before others in the area get to them but this morning I was first in line! I am beyond giddy over this purchase!

Just look at this french desk!! I made the boys get dressed as fast as they could because the fella said he would not hold it for me for very long.You have never seen a gal slap on some clothes and make up so fast!

It even has a drawer! Now for whatever reason the seller wiped it down with some stain before hand. I know this because it was still VERY VERY tacky. When ya touch it the stain gets on your hands. I am hoping he decided to do that this morning before listing it and that it will dry soon. If not it will make my job of making it beautiful more complicated. I hate it when stain stays tacky!
Well worth the rush though. I was wanting to wait till after lunch to go and get it because I had a bloggy pal coming by to purchase something from me and thus I was  going to use that cash to buy the desk. Well instead I had to get a loan from Oldest!;) Thankfully he loves his mama and remembers that I float him cash from time to time so it all worked out.

So what are you up to this weekend?
Don't forget Treasure Hunt Thursday is still going on! Be sure to join in on the fun and link up your treasures or projects!


Linking up to Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays over at Linda's place!:)

  2. What a beautiful desk! If the tacky doesn't go away, maybe you could lightly sand the drawer, or mod podge paper in it. We joke that our 15 year old son is the bank. He is so focused on saving money that he always has cash on hand -perfect when we don't have time to go to the 'real' bank. This weekend I am trying to get some work done on a few little projects.
