Keeping Fingers Crossed

So today has been more like a Monday really. So far none of my projects ...well one...have turned out the way I had hoped. I received the valances for the Kitchen that I had ordered a week and half ago from Kmart. They looked so pretty online. Almost had a faux silk look to them in the picture even with the zoom in field. Let me tell ya they came and I did not even take them out of their packaging they were that awful! I guess sometimes ya get what ya pay for and seeing as they were $6.99 each I over estimated their quality. So now instead of saving money I am actually wasting it by having to ship um back . $14 in shipping for $21 curtains. Ummm what is wrong with that picture. I may just sell um on the local yard sale site. So buyer beware! DO NOT purchase the red pouf valance from Kmart!

I am kinda worried because I ordered some of the Country Living line from them as well for our guest bedrom and paid rush shipping so it would be here in time for the in laws visit. Right now all is in their bathroom is a plastic see thru shower curtain and a blow up bed. How inviting uh!? Here is the shower curtain. It looks like it has soo much potential.

Here is the bedding. I ordered the eyelet shams to match as well. Again keeping my fingers crossed since the Country Living name is involved they won't be a complete loss.
Look at yet another wonderful inspiration project by The Nester. I had purchased a door over the weekend at Lowes to make something I saw on another site but instead decided against it since I had no where to put it. I took the other style door back for this style door like The Nesters in hopes of doing the exact same thing. I was so excited and even had purchased a $5 can of Oops paint to paint it and distress it. Got home and I did not even think abt the length of the door just the width. It is to tall. I refuse to return the door and for $19 I can figure out something to do with it in the future.

I did pick up my foyer light this morning and it is out in the garage drying from a few coats of antique bronze. It actually had a brown and blue speckled thing going on. Mind you with it hanging in a two story foyer nobody but me would have known but it still would have driven me crazy! It is HUGE and I have no idea how they ever had it hanging in their dining room. I mean really its gigantic! I will share pics soon.

Look at these pretties! I was inspired by Peanut Petunia and her sconces that she fauxed over the holiday weekend so when I saw these on the local yard sale site...yes I am addicted... I had to snatch um up! They were only $6 for both!

So there ya have my day in a nut shell. Littliest and I did go to Open House and meet his teachers! That was fun and what is more fun is that he starts school TOMORROW! I am throwing a party ya'll! Ya wanna come!?;) I am so counting down the minutes till bedtime. I LOVE my boys more than anything but ever since Oldest started school the afternoons have been rather testing.
Have a good one ya'll!
