I need a console table and fell in love with the look of this one. It is from Restoration Hardware and costs a mere $1300 - let the treasure hunt begin!Home Decorators just came out with this great knockoff for $570 (that includes shipping). I really like it but I think I might have found something better-
I found these columns at tablelegs.com that you can order in different heights - so I can get two of these at 24" high then put my dear husband Matt to work building a table top and bottom to attach them to. They come unfinished which means once the table is built I can easily stain it any color. With shipping, two of these columns are $350 so total cost for the table will probably be around $400. You could do a similar look for even cheaper if you used a skinnier column but I wanted the thickest I could find - this one has a 7 1/2 " width. I have to be more patient on the projects that require my husbands expertise so someday (hopefully soon) I will post the final results.
