I am all about getting bang for your buck...as my husband would say. So do your homework and check around for the best price. Craigslist, eBay, garage sales, estate sales...you will ALWAYS find what you are looking for. I promise.
With that said...I am on coffee tables. And they are pretty expensive. So here was my solution: I made my own.
I wanted something like this:
So I saw some pallets and knew I had to do something with them. The only way my husband agreed to this is because we found some amazing ones in excellent condition. However, I think I would have liked them a little more rustic, but he does have a say in things!
So this is my coffee table, and I love it!
I love it and will never get rid of it (never say never!)
Here are some others for inspiration....see if you can make your own too!
