I was tempted by this...
That Pottery Barn sure does know how to lure you in. But, just as I was close to convincing myself that this was indeed a logical decision, I spotted this...
Good ole Ikea comes through with this amazing option. I noticed it was used in the Southern Living Idea House...
And, it's only $169. What?? I'm sold. I told my husband we needed to road trip to IKEA (the closest one is 2 hours away) and bring that bad boy home. I have to get this room going, and I can't very well do anything until I have a bed for it.
Well, just as I'm mentally mapping out our trip to IKEA... which would, of course, include stops at Ballard Designs and PB outlets (how much fun is this going to be??)...
I decide to check craigslist one more time.
(I know. I can't help myself. I've still got a little "hunt" left in me.)
What did I find, you might ask. Or not.
I'll tell you. I found a very promising option for 50 bucks. I'm going to see it tomorrow. So, if you could all send me some good vibes tomorrow around 1pm, I would be eternally grateful.
If the craigslist bed is a winner, it will save me money, time and effort. Of course, it also means my shopping road trip is cancelled.
Which is a big bummer because I noticed that this week's doorbuster at the West Chester Ballard Designs Outlet is the Macau Arm Chair.
Regular price: $249. Doorbuster Price: $69.99.
So, if anyone heads to the West Chester BD Outlet this week, grab me one of these and I'll pay you back, okay?
Hopefully, I'll be back tomorrow with a new, old bed. Fingers crossed.
