You snooze..you lose....

Didn't get much sleep yesterday. Lisa was sick during the night and had to get up twice with her. Then to top it off the second time I went back to sleep all I could hear was Fred's snoring.... what does a girl have to do to get some sleep!  Anyways, what I am getting too is I was so tired this morning I forgot to get up early to go to a garage sale that was just down the road.
Well, Fred ended up going to this garage sale on his way to the hardware this morning and what did he find? Only something that I've been on the look out for! You have to be kidding! I have been after a vintage desk or table that I can put my computer on and they had one, the only thing is, it was SOLD! I tell you, if my leg was long enough I would have given myself a kick up the booty!!! Well you know the saying.. you snooze, you lose!

Last week though I did go to a garage sale and found this shelving cabinet..


I think it will look really nice in the laundry or perhaps it could hold some of my sewing bits and bobs... ofcourse like everything else it will get a shabby makeover.. so stay tuned.  Ok ladies, hope you have all been well, have a great week end, Maryann  ps. Lisa was much better the next morning (nothing worse than when the kids are sick)

Hi Maryann,
I hope Lisa is feeling better. Nothing worse than broken sleep too.
I love your new cabinet, it will look fabulous where ever you put it.

Hi Marion love that shelf will look amazing white but I am even thinking a nice shabby green or grey with white snippets coming through.
Your right snooze you lose - thats why I am usually at the markets early. Not today however we have had 6 inches of rain overnight and its still pouring. Have a good Sunday Sandy x

Hello hon, do you know I was here this afternoon reading all of your latest posts. I didn't realise i hadn't left a comment, then you left one on mine and I was so pleased. So came back here and realised I hadn't commented on yours. So funny we found each other the same day. Anyway, love the wooden draw shelf thingy. It will look super sweet painted, in fact I could use a few of those very things in my studio. Good finding cutie. ox talk soon, Ali

Hi Marion, I do hope Lisa is feeling better now. Sorry to hear you missed out of the desk but I think these things happen for a reason...that was not ment to be your desk and there is another out there (much nicer) with your name on it. You just have to find it :) Love the shelf you found...it will look stunning once you are all done.

Siobhan

p.s. thanks for your input on paint

Yup I agree with Siobhan who is a clever cookie, I'm sure there is a desk waiting out there for you to find it! Besides that wall shelf is fantastic!!
