On Our Way to Big Boy/Big Girl Furniture!

Nope, not for the baby's room, but for our master bedroom! We went to a few stores furniture shopping and went to Haverty's and everyone was already having their labor day sales so we browsed around. I still wanted the upholstered headboard look, but a little more grownup. Here was one of my inspiration pics.
Well, we found a bed we liked and purchased it! I don't waste any time. We didn't love the matching end tables or dresser as they were too big, bulky and expensive. We decided to go with the bed and bench and find other things later at a better price. The bed is a dark wood so I am a little worried about finding someting to match, but I am optimistic. We headed to Pier 1 and a few other places and I found this interesting side table that was beige/cream and I wondered if it would match the upholstered fabric on the headboard. I wanted to check out Home Goods because they always have interesting finds at great prices. Well I walk in and find almost the EXACT same table that was at Pier 1 (except it had 2 drawers and not 3) but everything else was the same and it was $100 cheaper. We scooped it up and I went to another Home Goods yesterday to find a matching table since they only had 1. Mission was successful and we are now waiting for the bed to come in on Wednesday.
I put a collage together of everything we have purchased so far. The side tables are the Pier 1 ones since Home Goods doesn't have their items online, but they really are similar minus the 1 drawer. I am just not sure on mixing and matching the wood colors. It might look like crap or it might be a nice contrast and look. I am in love with the tables already so I am not sure I can part with them.
This is the Home Goods Table. Isn't it so similar? We got free delivery for the bed and bench after pretending we were going to walk away from the purchase and they called a few times saying they lowered the delivery fee, but we said we'll think about it. Later that evening the manager called and gave us the free delivery and set up. It pays to play hardball and cash.
I also found a duvet set at Home Goods that I really liked. Look at the picture of the actual bed and isn't that pillow underneath gorgeous. I am not sure on all the colors, but it's an option. The next step after figuring out if the side tables will work is picking out lamps, curtains, a chair/seating area and bedding to coordinate with our new grownup furniture. Pin It

Like the two drawers better on the home goods one. I wish up north had a store like that. I think it will all look fantastic!
