Measuring Tape - ruined?!?!?!?!


After letting my measuring tape dry outside...it rained that night. And I'm not talking about a little drizzle....it freakin' POURED!!! So, after the rain stopped, I figured that I needed to let my measuring tape dry outside...BAD idea. My vinyl lettering started to "droop"...I was so bummed. So, I picked off the ones that were turning side-ways and put them back on by hand. I got smart and immediately Mod-Podged them all to stay on...and set it in the BASEMENT to dry (see, getting smarter). Then I took it outside to stain...give it that old look...and it RAINED AGAIN!! But, I was bathing my children and didn't realize it was raining...so there are now water droplets all over my stain on my measuring tape.
I'm considering just starting over..........
