Lucite Bench Envy

January 14, 2015
You know how every once in a while you stumble upon those pins on Pinterest that just make you green with envy?  Well, I've been secretly coveting a lucite bench for quite some time now after seeing the following pictures:

Are you sensing a theme here?  I just love how sleek and glam these gray lucite benches are...the problem is that every one I've seen online is well over $400!

This bench (above) is the cheapest one I was able to find, and it's being sold for $469 on High Fashion Home...yikes!

So you know why I'm sharing all of this, don't you?  Well...drum roll please...I found one that looks EXACTLY like this for $89 at Ross!  Can you believe it?  As soon as I saw it I picked it up and walked around the store with it until I was finished browsing. (No surprise that I found nothing else.  In my opinion Ross is rarely worth the visit, although I did score my beloved coffee table/silver trunk at Ross too, so the furniture selection can surprise you sometimes). 

I placed it at the foot of our bed at first, but decided to free up a little more space by tucking it under my lucite-console-table-turned-jewelry-table.  Isn't it fabulous?  I just love a good bargain and can't believe I got such an amazing piece for under $100!  You can see a bit of the gallery wall I'm currently working on, but it's not quite ready yet.  I'll share it soon though!

  1. Dear Katie,

    Was it hard maintaining a feminine identity at West Point and later as an officer in the US army? I read your article in the nest and feel very curious about your life.


    1. Hi Ellie,

      I did not find it difficult to maintain my femininity. I've always been a bit of a tomboy and a girly girl at the same time, and I didn't let my profession change me as a person. I've always loved getting dirty and doing difficult things, but I also like getting dressed up and love pink. The Army was great for me because I was challenged in ways that I enjoy, but I never felt the need to hide the fact that I was a woman. Plus, to tell you the truth, there were many feminine women at West Point and there are countless feminine women in the Army, so I was never out of place. Thanks for reading and I hope that answered your question!

  2. You find the best stuff and at great prices! I love that bench!

  3. I love this and feel like stalking Ross now... I feel same way about Ross- except in Hawaii- it was the only store we had that was somewhat discount!!
