A Homebase bank holiday bargain…

A Homebase bank holiday bargain…

For some strange reason in the seven years we have been married, Jim and I have never bought ourselves a TV unit. Of course we’ve had lots of things that have served as TV units, like sideboards and tables, but we’ve never actually had something made for the job, so when Homebase contacted us recently and asked if there was anything we needed for our new home, a tv unit was the first thing I thought of… but could we really get anything decent for a £100 budget?

I did some research online and then yesterday first thing we went along to our local store to take advantage of the 15% off bank holiday promotion. When we arrived everything looked different in the flesh to online. Not better or worse, just different.

I wandered around the display at the front of the store getting more and more confused and then decided to go and find Jim and in doing so stumbled across another totally separate display of tv units with this little gem

This TV unit was originally selling for £239.99 and had been reduced to £119.99 and then this weekend has an extra 15% off in the Bank Holiday sale, bringing it down to £101.99. It was a smidge over our budget so we paid the extra with our nectar points!

Online it says it is “wood effect” on the box it said it was “solid and veneer.” Personally I think it feels very much like a piece of solid oak furniture and it looks like it’s worth every bit of the £240 it was originally selling for. All the parts fitted together very well and the doors have a very satisfying firm magnetic pop when you open and close them. I honestly can’t believe they are selling something of this quality for nearly £100. The sale is on in store till the end of Monday and there appear to be some codes online (here) offering the discount online till the end of Tuesday, but I bet the stock they have won’t stick around…

Lovely looking piece. It looks much more expensive then it’s £100 price tag (or just above it)
