In case you haven’t noticed, I love a good bargain. I’ve always been one of those people who has thought, “why buy it if I can make it?!” And while my crafting, MIY, painting, etc skills are pretty good, there are some creative disciplines I haven’t quite mastered. Like woodworking. Something tells me that this is just never going to happen in my world! Since a dining room table is never going to be anything I would be able to make, I thought I would share the high and low version of the table that I have! Where is Clint when we need him?!
H I G H // Retail Price: $1,699 (table) + $1,838 (8 chairs)
This is actually the dining room set that I have, but luckily I scored mine at the Pottery Barn outlet for way less than mentioned here. I absolutely love it, but it’s hard to spend that much on something. Even if you apply the “cost per wear/use” logic, spending close to $4,000 on something is not a light matter.
Here is the set that I purchased in my dining room. I got the table along with six side chairs and two end chairs in the color sea drift. (P.S. the end chairs are on sale for almost $100 off!)
L O W // Retail Price: $300 (table) + $800 (8 chairs)
I mean… these tables are so similar you almost can’t tell the difference! I actually almost like the leg detailing on this table from Target a bit better than the one at Pottery Barn! The chairs come in a set of 2 for $200 or you could also do a farmhouse bench for $200 for the side chairs! Doing the bench option is definitely a great way to save money ($400 for two benches, $200 for two end chairs). Also, I thought I would mention that Target is having a promotion right now where if you spend $150, you can save $40 with the code FURNITURE. Oh, how I love a good coupon code!
Would you go high or low?
