I L-O-V-E my Art Wall. It is a curated collection of things I like to look at and are pleasing to my eye. If you would like to create an Art Wall of your own, keep reading. Today’s post is a mini tutorial for creating a custom Art Wall of your very own.
Every year Pantone introduces it’s Color of the Year. This year it is fresh and sets the mood for springtime. Greenery is as crisp as an apple and as fresh as the morning dew. This color really does bring the outdoors in. So I thought it might be fun to see how we could bring in this fun color in our interiors this year. [Read more…]
I love my coffee table! Did you hear me I’ll say it again I love my coffee table! When I did the post Shop my Style – Living room, of course, I featured my table. However, it is not what I would call a bargain find. It is a little pricey (I’ll get into that in a bit). So I thought I would devote a post to budget friendly coffee tables. Ready? Here it is!
The Coffee Table
Ok, ok I will talk about my table first. Since I love it so much and just in case you decide this is the one for you too. Here it is. It is a glass topped, chrome finished, x-base ornament in my living room. This table is $500 table from Z Gallerie. They call it the Cosmopolitan. And if you do have the five hundred to drop on this table you can get it here. At the time of this post it does happen to be on sale for about $70 off at ZGallerie.
Psst … Full disclosure one of the reasons I love my table so much is because I actually found it on Craigslist for less than half retail.
Budget Friendly Coffee Tables
Even though I was lucky enough to find a table for a bargain, I thought I would see if I could find some budget friendly coffee tables just in case you would like the same look but aren’t lucky enough to find a bargain like I did.
I was even able to find a few X-base tables. But it was a little tricky to find that style so I included a few other style tables similar to my table. Wanta get the look for less? This is just for you. So if you’re looking for a new coffee table check these out.
All seven options under $300!
- Ayden Chrome Cocktail Table Coffee Glass Top Modern Part Of Set
- Safavieh Home Collection Brogen Silver Accent Table
- Monarch Metal Cocktail Table, Glossy White/Chrome
- Quatrefoil Goldtone Metal and Glass Coffee Table
- Uttermost Zerrin Coffee Table
- Square Tempered Glass Top Coffee Table with Chrome Finish Base
- Kingsbury Home Versailles Contemporary Cow Hide Fabric X-Base Vanity Stool, Chrome Finish
Here is one last option. I know what you are thinking, “What! This is not even a metallic finish!” You are right, but look at the lines of this table. Can’t you just see it in a brass finish with a glossy white finish on the tabletop? It could be gorgous. That’s why I had to include it.
I love it, except the color
There are various finishes on the above tables but don’t be shy or intimidated remember your ideal finish is just a spray can away. I personally love this spray paint for the finish that it gives.
My table is a chrome, silver finish. But if you prefer a gold finish, I also just picked up this brass finished spray paint for an upcoming project. From what I have seen it seems to give a nice, toned down gold looking finish. It would be perfect on that last table.
So what did you think about my Budget Friendly Coffee Table options? I would love to know which one you like best. Please leave me a comment below and tell me which one you would choose.
Check out this image I saw on Instagram posted by Traditional Home. Do you love it?! I especially love the Faux Zebra print rug. You know what I thought right? I bet that would be easy to recreate this look and make a DIY Zebra Rug.
So check this out, somebody already did an awesome DIY Zebra Rug video. Yea!!! Hey, why reinvent the wheel! I would just replace the brown/black paint with a silver, gunmetal or even a metallic gold paint. Or how about rose-gold?
Whenever people visit they always ask me where I bought my furniture and home accessories. So today I wanted to share some of my finds with you guys! I decided to start a post series called Shop My Style where I will go through a room in my home and round up pieces that will help you achieve the look. One of my favorite spaces in my home is my living room. I love it! I just love being in there. So why not start there? This room is really close to my heart because I curated most of the items by savvy shopping. It is where I spend the evenings with my family and entertain family & friends. I truly love every piece in that room. Some things are vintage and/or thrift store finds … but I think I’ve found some design dupes that are pretty close and will work just as well in your own home!
