So we have budgeted and J has let me buy a few new things - yay! Of course, I had to promise to try and get good deals on everything and not just walk in Pottery Barn and drop a month's paycheck. Well ladies, I'm SUPER proud of my most recent purchase!
We have a small entryway/foyer and I had been on the hunt for something to put there for storage (coats, shoes, etc). I came across this beauty at Pottery Barn and fell in love:It's the Samantha entry way collection. The bench with storage and then the upper shelves to hang up coats - literally it's perfect and exactly what I wanted! However, I did not love the price - for the whole set, it would be $529, and that doesn't include any of the baskets or the cushion for the bench. Yikes, no thanks.
But then I found this:SHUT UP!! Randomly I googled "entry way bench" and this came up at JCPenney - yes, for real! I have never really shopped at JCPenney before, especially for furniture. My mouth literally fell open when I saw this...and then I saw the pricetag - $199! Seriously, I about died. And that price INCLUDES all 6 baskets AND the cushions for the bench. I was still a little bit nervous, but the website had like 85 reviews of the product (and yes, I read every single one of them) and they were all positive. People said the quality was really nice and that it's basically the exact same as the Pottery Barn one.
You better believe I clicked "order now" as fast as possible. Oh yeah, and then I got FREE SHIPPING. I really think it might have been my lucky day. The only bummer - it's backordered until November...but we got such a good deal, I don't mind waiting. Once it's here, I will take pictures and post MY review of it! LOVE!!
