John and I found an entertainment center at Di a few weeks ago and it was beautiful! It even had doors like I dreamed of. It was small like ours but it was real wood...with doors...and molding...and ball feet......and it was $150. Thumbs down! Very sadly I walked away. A couple weeks later we went back to DI and my beauty was still there! There were tons of people looking at her but no one was buying. I'm telling you $150 at DI is just to much. I jokingly told John I was going to go offer them $100 to take it off their hands. He said, why not? So I did. And guess what they said yes!

We brought the lovely little girl home and we wanted to give her a new black look with some wood showing through. I started that night. 7 cans of spray paint later and a new bead board back and this is what we have:

Isn't she lovely!

Want to see inside.....

What!!! Where did that come from!

Yes, my friends I gave John and early Christmas present. We got a little break with our finances and I figured that my man deserves something for him. All of our big purchases are always things like was time John got something fun for all of his hard work. We also splurged on a Blu Ray player so we can stream Netflix. And since we got a Blu Ray player we splurged for a full HDTV.

I am a happy girl, John is a happy man. Sometimes we just need to splurge a little.

Hello Ward Neighbor. I think I have seen you too. I believe you are in my friend Maria's ward. SMALL WORLD. ;)
I love your DI find but shame on DI HA! for charging a 100 or more for something. I hear the SL DI is enormous and way cheaper too. Non the less SCORE for you. She is so pretty, and real is so much better. ENJOY. Have a super day.

winks, jen
