Splurge vs. Steal: Crib

RH crib

Splurge | Restoration Hardware $849 USD


Steal | Target $199.99 USD

Target DaVinci Jenny Lind Crib


If you’re an avid blog follower {as I am}, you already recognize the Restoration Hardware crib. It’s a very popular crib, and for good reason. It’s dreamy, rustic, gender neutral, great quality, etc. Everything you would want for your new little addition. But first time parent-friendly price? Not so much.

This crib from Target, however, will fit your “I’m already saving for college” budget. It is also dreamy, gender neutral, great quality and more!

Which one would you pick?

Happy Friday! Today, I’m off to the states to pick up a chair I ordered from Overstock.com. Tonight, I’m heading to Montreal to celebrate my birthday with my husband…so this post will be short and sweet ๐Ÿ™‚
If you didn’t already know, I’m obsessed with garden stools / side tables. This post is no exception! Entryway, family room, backyard…this stool will work anywhere! I fell in love with the West Elm stool, and found a similar version on Wayfair.com for less. These stools can be found at any HomeSense, HomeGoods or Marshalls for $60 or less though {I own two}.
Have a great weekend, everyone!

Splurge vs. Steal: Pedestal Lamp

Steal | Target $24.99 USD

I fell in love with this lamp as soon as I laid eyes on it. Urban Barn knows how to make a statement. The colour of the base is beautiful and rustic, yet simple enough to fit in anywhere. This traditional shape is very popular right now, so I didn’t have to go far to find something comparable {at a fraction of the price}. You might be familiar with the #targetdoesitagain hashtag found on Instagram {there is actually an account under the same name…follow it if you love good finds}! Anyway, I think this lamp would fit into that category. Do you!?

Splurge vs. Steal: Rug

West Elm rug

Splurge | West Elm $352.44 CAD


Steal | Ikea $29.99 CAD

Ikea rug

This rug is a beauty. The colours are simple, but the design will add a touch of interest to your space. The West Elm version, in my opinion, is a “steal” in itself. At a smidge over $350, that’s a great price for a rug! Enter, Ikea. I don’t know how they do it. Seriously. $29.99 for an area rug!? And a nice one, at that! You’ve probably already guessed that I own this rug…I mean, obviously I do. I am the steal queen, after all…ugh, save queen! I need to work on that.

Which one would you choose?
