Although our kitchen is currently covered with tarps taped to the walls, drywall dust covering everything, and the entire previous contents of the kitchen cabinets are scattered all over our adjacent living room like a indoor garage sale (I wonder what the neighbors think?), I've still had some time to scour the net searching for high end looks on the cheap.
This handy-dandy storage ottoman is a great multi-function piece of furniture - acting as storage, stool, end-table, ottoman, and of course for adding a bit of flair to any room in your house. Hence why these little square storage ottomans are all the rage right now, and also why I'm looking to snag myself one soon. After seeing high-end woven ottomans like this in magazines and other stores, I wanted one for myself. So I went in search of one I could actually afford, and found this one. Guess where? That's right, Wal-Mart. At 30 bucks a pop, and free site-to-store shipping, these babies are right in my price range. Check them out.
Here's another piece of furniture I found at, yes, you guessed it: Wally World. I needed a console table for the house, and although I'm still debating on whether to put it near front door or back basement door, I just absolutely love it. It's solid and sturdy and the glass really makes the room feel open and airy. It was super-easy to assemble, and honestly looks pretty amazing. At 90$, this table looks much more expensive than it actually is (don't you love stuff like that?). Table at Wal-Mart.
