Maybe it's one out of three ain't bad instead....

I had lots of plans this weekend to do many things that, simply didn't work. First up faux crown molding for my office. My mom bought it for a project of her own but it didn't work so she gave it to me. Since it was free from my mom, I decided to give it a try. From the beginning my husband swore it was not going to work. Of course, I made him put it up on the entire room before I admitted defeat. Sadly it fell off the wall during the night and off it came...
Here is one shot of it not looking half bad.
But if you look closely at this shot, where the two pieces overlay, you will see it's just not a good sight. There is no caulk in this world that could fix it.
Too bad I didn't take a picture of it falling off the wall. At that point, I was too bummed to grab the camera. Oh well.

Then I went to the fabric store to get burlap to cover my bedroom closet doors, these ones right here...
Yes burlap ! Well they only sold loose fitting burlap that was very very fuzzy, so that was a no go too. Back to the drawing board on that, maybe I will do grass-cloth wallpaper. We shall see ...

But in other highlights I scored two paintings for $23.00 total. That's what I call a deal. This one is for my husbands non man cave room (lol see this post to know what I am talking about NON MAN CAVE)


And then for our dining room. I love this one and on the back is a message from the painter to I assume their friend they were giving it to as a gift. So awesome.

So that wraps up the weekend goodies. I found some solutions for artwork for the other bathroom project we are doing. Can't wait to get started on that one.
