End of the Bed Bench

For forever, I’ve had my eye on the Colette bench from Crate & Barrel for the foot of our bed.  I love the sleek design, linen fabric, and nailhead trim, and the dimensions were perfect.

 

 

But I couldn’t bring myself to pay that much for it- $599 plus tax and shipping charges.

So, I kept looking for less expensive alternatives.  I found some below and of course, pinned them to my Pinterest board.

 

 

 

 

 

I finally chose a bench after seeing a reasonably priced one on Overstock, at just $250 including shipping!  It’s the Renate Coffee Table Ottoman

It got good reviews for the fabric and I think the dimensions are right (18 inches high x 28 inches wide x 48 inches deep) since I didn’t want one that was too short for our king-sized bed.  I’m thinking of painting the legs, but we’ll see after it arrives, which should be Monday! I love fast shipping!

    Great choice. I like the contrast it will give to the bed…not so matchy matchy!

    That one is perfect.. Plus it looks like there would be enough space underneath if you wanted to add a basket or 2 for extra storage..

    Would be hard to choose for me, I like them all! Love the fabric on the one you opted for & not a bad price. Hope you love it when it arrives.

    Have a wonderful 4th!
