When Things Don’t Go As Planned….

A few weeks ago I received an email from Restoration Hardware Outlet for an additional 40% off their already reduced prices.  Excited.. I convinced my husband to make the hour and a half trip there.

Once we got there I was in RH overload.  So excited, could have bought everything.  But, decided to behave, instead focusing on botanical prints.  I have been actively looking for a set of four for our master bedroom.  I saw a set of five, with a sign for a set of six.  I went to the counter, explaining that I only need four and the full set of six isn’t on the shelf.  I purchased four botanical prints with the retail price of $595 each, for a total of $200, only $50 each!  Saving $2,180 off of the retail price, I was beyond thrilled!

I went to hardware store to purchase hooks to hang the prints.  I purchased these new ones I found, don’t know what made me purchase them and not the usual ones, but I did.  I even had that funny feeling and knew they didn’t look sturdy.  Wondering how are these going to even hang on these hooks? But, still I purchased them.

I took the measurements and began hanging them.  I was so excited with the results!

Look they are up! Looking good!

Look they are up! Looking good!

My husband and I decided to take a walk with the baby.  When my husband closed the door.. the unimaginable happened!

NO!! Can't Be!

NO!! Can’t Be!

I hear the crashing of the prints coming off the wall breaking onto the floor! I was upset.. My husband apologized and I knew it wasn’t his fault. It was those little funny hooks I decided to purchase without reading their use.

With my pouty face.. I pulled the remaining pictures off the wall and placed them away.

A few days passed, my husband said would you like me to drive to RH and purchase the last remaining print they have to replace the one that broke?  I couldn’t believe it.  Three hours in a car with a toddler to buy the print!  Not a whine not a complaint, but pure love to do it for me, just to make me happy.  He did it and I was beyond thrilled!

And look.. with new hooks that actually hold them to the wall.. I am so thrilled with the look!

Love!!

Love!!

You know what they say Happy Wife.. Happy Life. Thank goodness for my amazing husband.
