cheap chic - side tables

April 1, 2011

So I figured I would start a new type of post and if I get some interest, maybe I'll make into a series. I thought that since I'm always looking for a cheap thrill, I would pick a category, a dollar amount and go with it - finding "cheap chic" things for those of us who really appreciate a small price tag. Today, I'll be focusing on side tables under $35 because I'm currently on the look out for side tables in our bedroom (goodbye lack tables) and the sunroom. All of today's cheap chic are currently on clearance on

I think these nesting tables are adorable, and a little reminiscent of Elieen Gray, no?  The fact that they come as a pair for only $28.00 in black, and $32.00 in white is only icing on the cake.

These little babies remind me of the Hemnes side table that I couldn't get my hands on before it was discontinued (sad face). Good thing Wally World has something comparable. For $25, this little baby in  white or black is so charming! What can I say? You know I'm a sucker for sexy legs. Also, let me add that these scalloped end tables have a 5-star rating. Pretty impressive, huh?

Or perhaps your space needs a little pop of color! These bright end tables could be the center of attention for any room. They even have a little slide out drawer to store your little goodies. $30 for the pair? Not bad.

Cute, simple coffee table? I'm throwing this one in just for kicks! This Metro X coffee table is only $29.98. I was thinking this might look pretty swell in the sunroom. Perhaps painted gray or burnt orange? The wheels in my head are turning...
The side table version is adorable too. They come in either white, purple, or orange. I wouldn't use them in the same room with the coffee table because it would read a little matchy matchy for my blood, but alone, X marks the spot, plus they're only $30 for the pair. I actually like the thought of white ones on either side of our bed. Hmmmm...

Last, certainly but not least is the multifunctional tray table. Magazine rack or table? You decide. I just like it. And it's only $15. Excuse me, we knew that Walmart was cheap, but when in the world did it become so chic? Go ahead and get one - oh yeah, and use that free site to store shipping while you're at it.
