Girl on a Budget

As a girl on a budget, I'm always on the hunt for a bargain. To sound cliche, I'm a champagne gal on a boxed wine budget.   I've always ooogled and lusted for a saarinen table, but just couldn't justify spending THAT much money on SUCH a small table. Mortgage vs. End Table? I think we know what's going to win...

When I spotted this saarinen table on Lowe's website, I was beside myself.
Lowe's: $224.00
Compared to the real deal (below) it's QUITE the steal!
Design Within Reach: $889.00
