Our furniture in the master bedroom is old and the typical matchy-matchy 5 piece set. I've wanted to make changes for a while now but our existing furniture is good & solid. Also, everything I like is pricey. An example is the tufted headboard I've been eyeing for a couple of years now. Ballard offers this one:
It would be about $610 with shipping. Pottery Barn offers this one:
Headboard only is $674 before tax.
Luckily, I learn about great deals from my wonderful blog friends. I was reading one of the "best transformations of 2010" posts about a guest bedroom makeover and a tufted headboard was used that was purchased at Target. Target - are you kidding me - who knew?! I quickly went to the Target site and much to my surprise I found the headboard and it was $299 for a queen!
So, here is our bed before:

Seeing all of the fabric at the end of the bed feels so much softer. It also feels roomier at the end of the bed - I feel like there is room for a little bench now - hmmm.
Stay tuned for a couple of other small reveals in the master bedroom.
