The Change Up

Something interesting happened this weekend. I found an incredible bar cart online with the intention of using it in a clients living room. My plan was that when I got it home I wanted to style it and then photograph it for reference/portfolio work. When I picked it up I started to like the idea of having shelves to store books and accessories  then when I styled it I realized that it was a better fit in our space then the other one we already had!! It didn't even look like it was going to fit- but it was meant to be- fit like a glove!! Oops!! 

Has that ever happened to you?? I remember when I was little my mom would pick up really great presents for my friends birthdays and I would be so tempted to open them( I resisted) but I think I might have persuaded her a few times!!
