When it comes to buying things for the house, I usually lust after what is currently in my favorite stores like Pottery Barn but then try to find less expensive versions elsewhere.
So was the case with the beds in our house. I had recently been eyeing the Pottery Barn Coleman bed (pictured below) for the guest bedroom but definitely did not want to spend $750 plus $150 in delivery charges.
I can't take credit for finding this less expensive version (my sister-in-law found it) from Overstock.com .
With a coupon I had, it came to just under $300! The reviews were really good, it was pretty easy to assemble, and it is sturdy and feels like good quality.
As for the master bedroom, I have always liked the Crate and Barrel Colette bed but again,
couldn't fathom spending $1800. Yikes!
But then I saw this blog post from Honey We're Home and immediately tracked down the bed on Overstock.com . This version was about a third of the cost of the Crate and Barrel bed!
I am also very happy with this bed and glad I bought it!
I can't seem to find this exact bed on the Overstock website anymore (our bed was purchased a year ago) but it is on there in a different color.
Don't you love a good (and cheaper) find?
