One Table, Three Ways

Ah the never ending task of furnishing my family room!  Never ending, because like the saying goes, "the cobblers kids have no shoes"!

One of the things I have purchased are end tables.  I first spotted this little cutie on Joss and Main. 

It was love at first sight, but it was not inexpensive at $330.  It was more than I wanted to spend on a side table.  But given that I had spent WAAAAAY less than I budgeted for rugs, I figured I had a little wiggle room for the end table.  The table arrived a few days later and I absolutely loved it.
In fact, we loved it so much that we decided we HAD to have a matching set (heaven forbid!).

Panic set in!  The table was originally purchase on a "flash sale" sight for a "deal". Surely there must be another table some where in this world?!?   After a quick web search, I found it on Overstock.  And get this... it was on sale and $100 less.  I couldn't believe it and I am now the proud owner of a pair.

But wait, it gets better. Seriously.

Last week, I was perusing one of my favorite design blogs House of Fifty by Janell Beals (and if you haven't seen her online magazine House of Fifty, it is a MUST!) to see her DIY makeover of an inexpensive $49 table from Target.  Look familiar?
How awesome is that?!?!  You must click over to see the step by step magic she worked!!  It just goes to show you where there's a will, there's a way!
