I wanted to add window film to our bedroom windows, which have a fantastic view of our neighbor's kitchen.
well, our windows are 4 panes of 28x26, which will come to a grand total of $100. I did not realize that the windows were so large until I had already bought the film, opened it, filled a spray bottle with soapy water, and windexed the glass. FML.
I wanted to wallpaper the top of a dresser, which I was going to paint white:
but I wanted to use this paper, which from Target costs $69 (!!). There is no cheaper wallpaper out there, and Target does not carry any wallpaper at their stores, and neither does Home Depot. I did not realize this fact until I had already visited both Target and Home Depot. FML, twice, than three times.
And Target doesn't carry the lamp in store. FML... I've lost count, but you get the picture.
So I saved my $240, didn't buy anything . returned what I had purchased, and felt sorry for myself / angry at Target for being so expensive / annoyed Craigslist had nothing good. Back to the drawing board on the bedroom makeover.
Gaw. On the other hand, I went to the Mariners and Sounders games, and while they lost, the beer I drank and the hot dog I ate were very, very delicious. So it wasn't a total loss of a weekend.
