PART 2 OF MY NEPHEWS BEDROOM MAKEOVER



Alrighty then.....let's get going on part 2 of putting together a room in a week!  I left you hanging about our trip to the Pottery Barn Outlet.

It was an insane day.  We found so many bargains that we changed the plan to take advantage of them.....I mean you gotta be flexible right?

That is the beauty of having free range in the design process!

So....here is the headboard we ended up getting.
It is the Lewis Headboard with a linen slipcover. 
Retail:  349.00  Slipcover:  199.00  Total is 548.00
We paid: 199.94 [brand new in box]

Here is the rug we got.
Retail price:  399.00
We got it for 149.97

Now here is the info about the dresser.  Oh they had it alright but it did not have the feet.  AND....they could not be ordered....so we found another one for 100.00 cheaper!
 The retail on this puppy was 1019.00
We paid 249.97
Can you believe that?  I did cartwheels down the isle.  Glad I had my pretty panties on.

Here is the desk we got
They did not have the one covered in grasscloth but they did have the metal one.
Retail:  499.00
We paid 249.97

Here is the chair that we scored...
Retails for 269.00
We paid 136.98

And the last thing we got was this bookcase.
Retail was 399.00
We paid 82.97

Unbelievable right!!!!  I mean we had to go back the next day to pick it all up....in my sisters OLD truck with the airbag light on the whole time...and no windshield wipers.   

Death trap.  Feared for my life.

We also scored a coverlet and a task lamp.  

Picked up these beauties from Target....
On sale I might add....

We were in a frenzy putting it all together and my sister mistakenly cut her finger while she was using some scissors.  Geez...she was slinging blood everywhere.

We could not find a bandage so I fixed her up real nice....
Toilet paper and painters tape.....now get back in there and finish painting the bathroom.

Sudi is helping me out by getting the pillows finished so I can give you a little reveal on Friday!  Isn't she the best!

Of course I raided my hoarding closet as did my sister.....and made a few donations.  I am always happy to get rid of some things for a good cause.

I know you can't wait until the reveal...cause y'all are whores when it comes to a before and after.

One more thing before I cook dinner [who am I kidding....putting in a frozen pizza]....I know it is that time of year when people start fixing up there homes.  I would like to give you some info on Sudi's fiancé Michael, who is a wonderful builder....just in case you get the urge to rip out a bathroom or kitchen!  Do It!

This room is going to be amazing! I love all of the things you have found so far, and I can't believe the great deals you got!

Loi Thai, Tone on Tone said...

OK, now I know where that cool bureau / chest came from. $249?? Seriously? Gotta track down a PB outlet in our area.

William Gulliver said...

I've noticed that the furniture and other items you've got there matched with one another. That's awesome! I zeroed in on the bookcase though. I have lots of books at home, so I can't make do with my bookcase. Aside from being functional, it is a great centerpiece too, which could be a conversation-starter. :)
