I'm no longer allowed in Menards by myself. I ran up there today to see if they had any yard games discounted - we're having some friends over this weekend and I wanted to give them something to do other than the usual eating, drinking and merriment. I don't know why, they seem to be good at the usual.
Menards was out of the aforementioned games but oh did I find goodies! For those of you who don't have a Menards near you I'll explain. It's a strange store. I don't typically enjoy shopping there but today, by myself, without Ken dragging me through the lumber department I was in heaven! Retail therapy heaven. I called my friend Lisa and told her I was no longer allowed in Menards and why. She asked, "Did you buy a gallon of milk?" I didn't but I did see it there. Milk and lumber. And plumbing and appliances and windows and beef jerky and barrels of cheese balls. It's so strange.
Anyway - I did find some good deals, This table for example:
real wood. $34 but it doesn't match my coffee table you say?
Head over to the paint department. One can of spray paint later and we have this:
a table that does match my coffee table. that's were the industriousness comes in. I even got a marriage proposal for being so crafty and clever.
And how fortuitous! Menards is close to a yarn store I love but don't get to very often because it's so far away (and Ken is usually with me when I go to Menards).
This lovely hank needed to come home with me. It's Jitterbug "Gauguin" and not surprising at all it's the same colorway Cami chose for herself earlier this year when she was yarn crawling through Milwaukee. We're connected that way.
That's all I got for today. A new and then improved table and yarn. It's been a good day.
