Pottery Barn: 1, Taylor: 0

I was SUPER EXCITED when the lady from pottery barn called me to let me know my shelf finally arrived (2 months later). It was the last touch of the never-ending project of decorating my room in our b-e-a-uuuuu-tiful townhouse! But of course the shelf was self-assembly, and I had no one in sight to pout and force to do it for me.


While I have a lot of great qualities, patience and direction following are not my strong points. I'll leave it at that.


So it came in these boxes so I thought it might not be that bad




UGHHHHHH POTTERY BARN WHAT AM I PAYING FOR


Took me like 20 minutes to realize I was supposed to use an allen wrench instead of a screwdriver....
 Then I proceeded to screw in the wrong size shelf because apparently attaching them in descending order was past my college graduate ability

But finally....IT'S DONE! and all by myself! Eric be proud that I am surviving without you :)


Oh, and I hung these metal stars too since I was on a roll! (such a bargain by the way they were 60% off at Jo Ann Fabrics!)


FINALLY after endless hours and blowing basically all of my graduation money...MY ROOM IS DONE! :) :) :)

So intense. Eric would be so proud. All you need is a sex canopy and you'll be all set. Did you take these pictures knowing you'd be blogging about it???? Once you start mentally prepping your posts ahead of time...that's when you know you're a blog addict. SO PROUD.
