Reclaimed Wood End Table: High & Low Lessons Learned

Reclaimed Wood End Table: High & Low Lessons Learned

So if you’ve read this blog before you already know that I’m passionate about making decorating user-friendly.  I love design that is accessible to all of us and I love a good deal.  My life’s mantra might as well be “why pay $600 when you can pay $30?!”

This is why I’m kicking myself.

A while back, my husband and I purchased a reclaimed wood table from a dealer, and put it in our family room.  Here it is:

It’s actually petrified wood!  You can’t even tell how cool it is and it cost a fortune.

Here it is, hiding in the shadow of our sofa:

I’m kicking myself now because I really could have found something that made a real impact and didn’t cost me an arm and a leg.

I didn’t take my own advice – find something equally stunning for a fraction of the price.


I’ve recently stumbled upon two reclaimed wood end tables (also known as “live edge” wood tables) that are visually beautiful and that don’t break the bank.

So you don’t have to go through the same madness I did, dear Reader, I’m telling you about them today.


Here’s the first, a lovely reclaimed wood look from Room & Board for about $400:

The Allard End Table, Via Room & Board, ~ $400



And the second, the most amazing little reclaimed wood side table from Pigment:albion slice final

Albion Burl Slice Table, Via Pigment, ~$140

Yes, you read that correctly.  That side table is less than $150!!!  I know, I can’t believe it either.

So there you have it, two beautiful reclaimed wood / live-edge end tables for under $500.   You are welcome!  And let’s just say I learned my lesson.  🙂

By the way, I was in Atlanta last week at the annual Interior Design Bloggers Conference. Wow, what an eye-opening few days!  I was able to meet some of the best in the business, learn a ton about being a decorator AND a blogger, and make new friends.

    Grr…SO frustrating! The bloggers conference sounds great! I’m planning to attend the BEA (Book Expo America) Bloggers Conference in NYC in May for the first time. Will probably reach out to you for some tips!
