Like I said before, Pottery Barn is one of my favorite places to "borrow" design ideas from. Because I am lucky enough to live near (well, within driving distance) a Pottery Barn Outlet Store, I can actually buy some furniture pieces without breaking the budget. A few years back, I got a mailer which advertised a beautiful buffet for a steal (if I recall correctly, it was around $300-$400). It was an special deal and was good for one weekend only. So I dragged my husband there and loaded it in the back of our SUV. I should mention that we lived in a tiny condo at the time and had no space for this huge thing. But I knew I loved it and I knew it would work perfect someday in a new house. So I stored it in the basement (in the box) for over two years!
I was finally able to break out this beauty when we moved last winter. And I loved it just as much as the day I bought it when I finally got it out of the box. If I hadn't gotten this piece, I always would have been looking back and wishing I had. I hope you keep that in mind next time you are at the store and see a piece that you just have to have that won't be around for long, but know it won't work for you right now. If you love it enough, you can make it work!
