Did not go that well... :(
Lowe's had the Kitchen Aid mixer that I have been watching for a while at $149.50 (original price $299.00) plus a $30 Mail in rebate... So it would have come out to be around $130!!!! Lowe's But of course, only my luck when I went to check out they were completely sold out, so option 2 run to Bed Bath and Beyond and request a price match! Unfortunately when I arrived at BBB they searched Lowes.com and the special was over with... :( This has showed me to never waste time by trying to search for any other deals when I already found one, just grab it and pay for it ASAP. I have also Found this really neat site that keeps you updated on the latest deals, http://slickdeals.net/. Any other sites out there like this one? Plus, if you do a lot of online buying you have to sign up with Rebates to earn cash back.

We've had our bedroom set for over 8 years and its starting to show some wear and tear. I have to admit we should not leave our cups on the nightstands since they drip and will wet the wood, but where do you put a cup when its super late and always forget the coaster???? Well it happened... the 'wood' eventually started to chip.
So we sanded the everything down, primed and painted. Step 1 - Gather all your supplies:
- Sander With 60 grit sand paper
- Wood Filler (if you are replacing your hardware with something that won’t fit the existing holes)
- Primer (Water-Based)
- Paint (Either Semi-gloss or full Gloss)
- Foam Brush and Foam Roller, or a good brush for no stroke mark
