Success Sort'a...

...When did bedroom sets become so costly..?
was the sticker shock 'cause we haven't bought furniture in ages...?

Shopped all afternoon and could not find a bed we agreed on...finally decided to purchase the mattress set and frame, then have our handy-man build us a headboard using a section of picket fence...of all things.....and did you know it's almost impossible to get a plain white wooden headboard....!!


Good ole' Lowes Hardware....first stop..!!
blinds in the right color..the right width and just a little to long...but the intsaller will shorten for a small extra fee....less than $350 for both big windows...

Everyday is a Gift


  1. Sorry you didn't find the bedroom set, but glad the blinds worked out.

  2. Making your own head board sounds like a clever idea. Nice you know someone who can do that. Glad you found the blinds. Now you'll be able to the let the sun in when you want it. I'd say you were successful all the way round. Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

  3. Lowes, and to think I have spent a lot of time writing that company telling them of the short comings and procedures, after I waited at a loading dock to find out later, yes the computer says we have 5 but we can't find them! etc. They have turned into a great place to shop. I built several houses thru them in later years.

    Yep, that sticker shock will get you ever time!!

  4. Oh, how exciting! Yes, I think there is "sticker shock" whenever we just make a trip to the grocery store! I really like the sound of a picket fence headboard! So lucky to have a "Mr. Handyman!":-)
