Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)...

I promise this will not be a post on Cinderella. Even though I know if you are in my age bracket you are humming that tune in your head as you read this {smile}.

A few weeks ago during our family vacation I was snapping a shot of Hannah with Alice in Wonderland. We moved a few steps over for a picture with Mary Poppins and NOTHING!!

After recharged and then a new battery still nothing. So off to the Canon repair shop it went.

It wasn't until she was gone, and I had to revert back to my ole' point-n-shoot ,that I realized just how much better my SLR was. So with that all said please forgive the photos. My sweet baby is do back this week. Hopefully refreshed and ready to go.

Ok, onto the point of this post.

After dropping off Hannah Friday morning Gabe and I were on our merry way to Pre-K. When he spotted a yard sale. My boy has a great little eye and is my sidekick shopper. So we had a few minutes to spare and pulled over.

I feel in love with this!

Honestly, I have been looking for a table like this for years. It had a great structure and was sturdy. But she was asking $35.00 for it. What can I say I'm cheep! This was the first day of her sale and it was 7:55 AM so I figured no way she will come down this early. So as I was walking away I thought to myself, what the heck she can only say no. So I turned and offered her $25.00 and she took it. Yippee!! After some light sanding and a nice new coat of stain here she is...

I did not apply a top coat because I wanted to have a more distressed look.

Aren't my walls pretty? That's a new two color look and another subject. Just for the record they are not yellow. With school starting and work picking up I had lots of free time to start a massive painting project at home. I will let you in on it real soon.Of coarse I need to also find some new tabletop goods for this cutie!
