After my son's soccer game on Saturday I headed to an auction. If you are one of my facebook friends then you have seen my post about this brass dresser that I wanted so badly.
The auction was at an old mansion and there was so much cool stuff.
I'm still angry about the outcome though. I was outbid again by the same guy that outbid me last time when I was upset about two matching baker dressers that I wanted to use as nightstands for our bedroom! Those furniture dealers that come to the auctions and just buy anything and everything with an outrageous budget just bug me. And now I'm more mad at myself for not continuing to bid on that gold dresser. I actually left right after he outbid me. There were a couple of other cool things there but I saw the same guy checking out all the stuff that I wanted and just left.
I googled brass dresser and came across these cool pieces and am convinced now that I needed that dresser, haha. I want, I want, I want...darn it! I don't know where that brass obsessions is coming from? I thought I hated brass! It's somehow sneaking itself back into my home. It started with the gold chevron lamp shades, then the gold on my coffee table...Where is this going?

Saturday evening I was talked into going out with the neighbor ladies. What a bad and horrible idea. There is a reason I usually stay home. I'm embarrassed to admit that I was sick all day yesterday. A perfectly beautiful day completely wasted by my own stupidity. That said, I have to tell you that I'm not finished with the project that I wanted to share with you. Hopefully I'll be done with it on Wednesday.
I win the moron of the week award for this weekend.
So check back on Wednesday to see if I'm done with the project, ok?
