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.
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?
