I always say that most of the time, you get what you pay for.
Don't get me wrong, I love a good deal as much as anyone else, but sometimes, if it is something that it is going to get a lot of use, I want good quality. Even then, I will wait for a good sale or search for coupon codes to save a little money.
That was the case when my daughter was ready to change her bedroom.
She loves Pottery Barn, but sometimes it can get a little pricey, specially when you are redoing a whole room.
At the time, she fell in love with this collection from Pottery Barn.
And I have to say, it is the best buy we have made in a long time. After a year and a half of using it every day, her linens and drapes still look and feel like we just bought them yesterday.
Because we literally spent all our budget money at PB, LOL, we had to get creative and change the look of the decor items she already had. We did a lot of painting! :) Her mirror was black and we changed it to silver.
We also took one of the yellow pillows to Lowe's and they were able to match some paint, which we used to paint her vase and flower pot on the dresser.
And we used the same lamp on her night table, we just changed the shade which we found at Target.
We did a little decorating on top of her wardrobe using things we had at home.
I know she will be able to enjoy this look for a long while, well, thinking about it, I think she will probably get tired of it before it even starts looking old. :)
