Hunting for a Headboard

I am in the market for a new headboard.  A fabric one.  After years of leaning against a hard wall or an even harder wooden headboard while trying to read in bed, I need something soft.  Pottery barn is always a good place to start for a little inspiration.

But the problem with Pottery Barn is the prices don’t seem too bad at first, but once you add in the processing fees, shipping charges, and sales taxes, all of a sudden a $600 headboard is over a thousand bucks.

Etsy is always a great place to find handmade or vintage items like this beautifully covered headboard from Rogersbrothers in Florence, South Carolina.

You can even provide your own fabric so you can get exactly the look you want.  Totally brill!

But I just can’t make a decision on any big purchase without checking Overstock, and wouldn’t you know I found this great neutral headboard with copper grommets for less than $300

With virtually no shipping fees, it’s a hard bargain to pass up.  Now I just need to get an address in San Francisco, so I have somewhere to send it!

Falling in love over and over and over on overstock.com

Yes, I am totally aware Overstock.com is not a sexy site.  It’s not pretty or frilly or chic or trendy, but it is a bunch of stuff (some good, some bad, some awful and some freaking fabulous) that companies made too much of and need to get rid of, immediately.  Their loss is your gain.  It has definitely been mine.  And athough I love going into specialty stores and I think it’s important to support local businesses and there is often nothing better than seeing or feeling something in person, there are lots of times when getting an awesome deal is better than all of those things combined.   Way more awesome.

Like this timeless chrome faucet.

Or this pair of lamps.

They want to get rid of them so badly they’re selling two for the price of one…and they’re gorgeous!

Or this funky, cool mirror.  It is such a great piece for over a bed or couch!

 

You could seriously decorate your entire house using this site alone. And come on, the shipping is $2.95 per order no matter how much you order!!!  I swear I am not a paid sponsor of Overstock – I just recognize things of beauty at incredible prices, especially when they come delivered right to your front door!
