I've been a little too busy to post. My Pottery Barn catalog came in the mail yesterday.
I wanted to give it all the attention it deserved.
I love Pottery Barn. I can't afford anything that comes from there, but I love looking through the catalog for decorating inspiration. How great is it that they list the paint color that they use for each room? And those new Style Tips every couple of pages! Awesome.
Despite not being able to afford it, I do own a few things from Pottery Barn. I've found that resistance is futile. But at least I go small.
I bought all of our bedding there, but have been scared to put it on our bed. Because it's so expensive. So that didn't turn out too well. I can't bare the thought of it getting puked or peed on, so it will probably stay in plastic bags until we're done having children and they are old enough to lock out of our bedroom.
I combined a few gift certificates that I've been saving over the years and got a three pieces from the Daily System for a kitchen wall. LOVE it. The key holder and a corkboard sandwich the whiteboard calendar. I don't know what I did before I had this!
I also splurged on a Charging Station. I believe the proper termage is Bedford Smart Recharge Station. The picture shows it in white, but ours is black. It keeps all of our cords nicely tucked away, and all of the cell phones and other crap that ended up in my fruit bowl end up here instead. This was truly worth the money.
Other than that, my house is basically PB free. Our budget keeps it that way.
Which is why I can't believe I'm insane enough to even consider it, but I am in LOVE with the chair on the cover. It's gorgeous!
Just look at it!
I never in a million years would've thought about owning a chair like this one, but I feel it calling to me. It would really snazz things up.
The only problem is that it's $729! And with the $65 bargain shipping, that brings the total to $794. But it's HIGH QUALITY. So that makes it okay, right?
I could pull Gabi out of preschool for a few months to pay for it. Or cancel Netflix for, like, 44 months. Okay, so that wouldn't be a good option. But the preschool thing could work!
Okay, back to reality.
I really do wish it wasn't ridiculous to spend that much on a chair. Well, ridiculous in that we're not loaded. If you have the money, go for it! If I had the money, I'd buy it in a second.
And hope it was more timeless than it looks.
