The Look for Less

Just had to share my latest budget-friendly find. As you know, I'm sprucing up my basement this winter. This is the design board I created with the vision I have for the space.

Notice the weathered brass end table?

Arteriors Santiago Iron End Table

Price: $756

Now, I was not really considering spending nearly $800 on an end table for my basement that will likely be completely abused by my children. I just liked the look, and figured maybe I'd find something similar.

Well, I did…

Threshold Metal Honeycomb Accent Table

Price: $63.99

I was perusing the aisles of my beloved Target, and this little gem jumped right out at me. It was marked down from an original price of $79. Score!

If you're in the market for an accent table in a weathered brass finish, run to Target. They'll hook you up.

Now, I haven't seen the Arteriors version in real life. Perhaps it is a solid iron piece, unlike my hollow Threshold table. Or maybe it's solid gold.

But, for my purposes, I'll take the look for less.

Have you scored any looks for less lately? I'd love to know.

TGIF, friends!! Let's get this weekend started...


  1. Love your target find and I like the style better. Super fabulous find. Hugs, Marty

  2. That is a great looking piece. What a great looking table for the money! I was thinking TJMaxx and then realized you said Target. I can't go back to Target this week- I was just there and bought out their "baby girl" department so my hubby has banned me! lol xo Diana

  3. I think you got an awesome deal. Yours actually has a little more personality than the other one. Great find. I am your newest follower.


  4. Great score! I actually like it better than the pricey version! I love your design board - the mix of black& white with the colourful pillows and leather - so cozy!

  5. I agree with the others...that Target one looks waaayyy better than the expensive one! Woohoo!

  6. It is a great find, lucky you! Love it when that happens, great feeling too, right?
