Lesson learned...

Ya gotta move fast. That's the lesson I've learned. If you see something you love(or really like A LOT), nab it. Because for sure, someone else will swoop in right behind you and take it.

I'm kicking myself this morning. I saw this shelf on one of trips to Old Towne Orange. The sign stated, "$25.00 Firm". I was smart enough to take a picture of it, but not smart enough to get it right there and then. I went back a few days later and it was gone.

Now before you say or think to yourself "Ooooo, how ugly", just wait.

I was opening my e-mails this morning and, lo and behold, a picture of what would have been. Sigh.

You can see the complete transformation here.

Oh well. Ya win some, ya lose some. Lesson learned.

OMG! I am laughing so hard right now:) I was floored when I saw the "wood"-have-been shelf! Talk about twins! Amazing. It's also good to see I wasn't the only one who saw potential in this old thing. I am also so excited you featured me! Thanks a million:)

My jaw dropped when I saw that picture. I couldn't believe there was more than one of those out there!

I had the same experience this weekend as I drove past a garage sale and spotted a rolling metal cart. It was gone when I finally was able to stop.

Rolling metal anything will make me stop! Darn!
