Now granted, as part of the Dave Ramsey program my husband and I adhere to, we each get $20 blow money a week that we don't question each other about. I decided to wait, however, and go with the chance that it might still be in the store when I absolutely couldn't stand not having it.
Well, last night I was at Walmart getting some last minute groceries and THERE IT WAS on the clearance aisle, for $15! I had just gotten my $20 blow money for the week out of the bank, and decided this was a sign. It quite literally flew in my cart since there was only one left. I think I actually did a quick glance to the left and right of me, to make sure no one else was going to get it before I did, then I quickly put it in my cart and flew down the aisle. I couldn't stop smiling.
This is where I decided to put it.
What I had there was fine, but a little small for the bed. So, here it is, the new frame!
I added the ribbon and the old fashioned door handle, and the berries, but the frame is what it is.
Just look at the added detail to each corner.
And the background color goes so well with my wall color.
This is an old door handle that came from our first house in Goshen. A 100 year old house that I miss greatly for it's character. I hung it on a nail above the frame.
Here is the end result. I'm very pleased with my purchase. It just goes to show, you never know when a deal will be made. Just don't get in my way if I see it first!
