Well I made it to the thrift store and low and behold my headboard was still there! I was thrilled. I had been dreaming about it all night. But, sadly it was a king size and since I only have a queen it wasn't going to work for me.
I ended up getting another one. Not as nice but I think once I add the wreath applique and get it painted it will work out just fine. If not, well then I will just find another one to do. After all the headboard only cost me $3.00.
I rushed over to Home Depot and took out my list and quickly started to fill up my basket with all the supplies I was going to need to start painting. I also picked out a few flowers and ivy to put in my thrift store wire baskets that I got the other day.
The sales clerk rang me up and said "that will be $146.12". What! I almost fell over. Yikes, the headboard wasn't that cheep after all. However, the supplies will allow me to do many many projects so I was to upset after I thought about that. I also bought a humming bird feeder and some salt for our soft water so it really wasn't that much.
I put the plants outside, got a cold drink (it's still hot here) and took about a 15 minute rest. Then I headed outside to plant.
Oh no! My flowers were already wilting. I was a bit worried but I soaked them and they are coming back just fine now that it is cooling down for the evening and they had a nice big drink.
You can see the photos above. The one hanging basket can be seen in the photo with the hydrangea and then the other hanging one has the little cherub I got the other day. I think it looks cute there. How about you?
