I continued shopping and went to the till to pay for my purchases. The lady in front of me at the till was trying to return something she had previously purchased and when she was finished with her transaction I paid for my other items and left.
That night I was sitting at home thinking about my day and started to wonder if it was "my" bed that she was returning.
Or, could it?!
So, trying not to get my hopes up, I went back to the store the next day and sure enough - it was still there WITHOUT a sold sign on it! "Meant to be!`` I told myself!
The sales person was so impressed with my dedication to the hunt, she knocked $10 off the bed for me!! So, since I was scared to lose this opportunity I told them I'd take it home with me right now!
Now comes the hard part. I get really excited about new projects and when I'm in the mood to start one, I want to start NOW, so I took the bed home in my a Pontiac Sunfire... Thank goodness it wasn't a king size!
The bag on the end of the bed was the only thing in the store with some red on it that they could give me to tie on, so I have blurred out my license plate and house number so that I don't get a ticket. I have ALOT of driving issues - enough to fill a whole other blog!
(Today I knocked over a fountain with a truck and trailer - not kidding!) oops
Anyway, I got the bed home and started in right away with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint LOVE IT!
And it's turning out beautifully!
