I would like to announce that I am no longer a Hobby Lobby virgin. After hearing about this place all over blogland I decided to check out their website last week and was shocked to find that the store actually existed in NJ. Not near me or anything, but still, it was there. I swear I have never heard anyone mention it out loud. So today after I picked my little ones up from preschool, we took a road trip to Hobby Lobby. It was a joyous hour-long ride with them watching Horton Hears a Who for the first time. (I know, it’s like they live under a rock!)
Anyway, despite my son having a royal fit and screaming for the first 15 minutes we were in the store, and the fact that I had to buy M&Ms from the Easter aisle because I felt like I was going to pass out, we had a great time. I didn’t find any fabric I loved, which I desperately need to reupholster my seriously beat up chairs. But I did have good luck in the knob aisle. Well, pretty good luck. I was disappointed they didn’t keep a larger stock of each knob. I would have bought new knobs for my kitchen cabinets, but I need 27. Hobby Lobby had like 5-8 of each. I got a pirate treasure chest pinata with my coupon and some gold doubloons, because my little guy turns 4 this month. Oh, and I also picked up some craft paper. The paper and knobs were 50% off. (Read about my son’s Jake and the Neverland Pirates Party here.)
I sanded them right away, and brought them inside, but then forgot about them. In the mean time I lost the knobs. Doesn’t matter, because I found these. (The full post on these side tables can be found here.)
I got six of these for my craft room cabinets that have been knobless forever. They don’t really need knobs, but I always meant to put some there.
Oh, last but not least, I got two of these for my 11-year-old because she is obsessed with the “Keep Calm and Carry On” posters. These days I hate to buy her anything without her being with me, because she tends to hate everything, but I figured we could always spray paint them hot pink to match the pulls on her huge desk. It’s been missing 2 knobs since I painted the thing. OMG! I am such a slacker it’s ridiculous! I will try to DIY better. I will try to DIY better. I will try to DIY better!!!
See ya later! Tomorrow is my birthday!!!
