Budget Small Space Table Solution

This weekend I had a chance to venture out into the world of retail and ducked into my local Crate & Barrel to check out their new outdoor furniture. As soon as I stepped in the door I was greeted by these sunny side tables that although they're intended for the patio, I think they'd be perfect elsewhere in the home!

Living in the central Midwest it means that outdoor furniture is packed away for half the year and so I always have a hard time justifying the price point on many pieces intended for this purpose. These tables, although included in Crate & Barrel's new outdoor line are actually quite versatile.

Not only do they pack a serious punch of color, which is always a plus in a small space, but they are sturdy and priced just right. At $40 the Pedestal Side Table could work as a night stand, next to a sofa to hold drinks or a lamp, you could even group several together and make them a coffee table. It's available in 4 colors: Cayenne, Daffodil, Graphite and Peacock.

Often "small space pieces" come with overly inflated price tags and I'm glad these didn't and wanted to share the find. Sometimes it's nice to see things in person and be able to touch and feel them instead of checking them out online.

Have you seen anything this season that you think would make a great small space find? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
