FACT: I love Pottery Barn.
FACT: I love a bargain more.
A bargain, a deal, a sale, a steal trumps any love I could have for something full priced, even it is the mac daddy of all home goods, Pottery Barn. Since we’ve moved into our new house, I’ve been dreaming of a vintage-industrial-wooden-chic theme (if such a theme exists?), which also means I’ve been ogling this dreamy coffee table for quite some time.
With an unfriendly price tag of $599, I knew better than to invest so much in one single piece if I would be remodeling the entire home-front. But lo and behold! – after a long day of shopping and curtain hunting (a whole other drama for a whole other day), we found the table. No, we hadn’t wandered into yet another Pottery Barn – we were in (strangely) World Market, and we were seeing double…
This table is that table’s identical twin – except much more affordable and absolutely perfect! We actually circled it half a dozen times before leaving the store, still contemplating if we really needed a new coffee table. That is, until I returned home from class last night to see it sitting pretty in my living room, thanks to the greatest husband in all the land – such a chic surprise from a man who knows me best. Disregard the sloppy couch and dull motif – remember, this new house is a work in progress that will be 100% worth it in the end!
Happy bargain hunting!
