The economy is still seesawing in the aftermath of the credit meltdown and so folks are looking to save some money and I hope that my post today on cheap black end tables will help those of you who are looking for furniture on the cheap. We’ll be talking about cheap black end tables in relationship to coffee of course. Perhaps a useful place for those coffee pictures or storing that commercial coffee grinder or office coffee machine. I joke, I joke of course. But the pictures wouldn’t be a bad idea to place on the coffee tables. End tables can also be used to showcase that hand coffee grinder that you were bequeathed from your grandmother’s estate.
Thoughts on finding cheap black end tables
Some things to bear in mind when you’re looking for cheap black end tables or even a coffee and end table set is what style you are looking for. If you’re in the market for cheap coffee tables you still need to keep in mind the decor of your home but more specifically the decor in your living room or other area where these cheap black end tables are going to be placed. And I want to urge you at this point to really own the fact that just because you’re looking for cheap wooden coffee tables you can still find practically any style or design that you are looking for. My oak coffee table for instance was not expensive and it has lasted me years. And a lot of that longevity I owe not only to the quality of course, but also because I chose a design that I knew I could live with for years to come.
You’ll know that I’m a bit of an environmentalist, and I’ve written about a few topics like that on this blog, namely about paper coffee cups and disposable coffee cups. So my approach here as with everything is longevity. Just because we’re looking at cheap coffee tables and end tables doesn’t mean that we aren’t also focused on something of quality that will last us a long time. I hope you’re with me on that train of thought.
Some places to find cheap black end tables
Now the best places that I have found to buy cheap black end tables or storage coffee tables and especially coffee end tables is at garage sales and estate sales. I’m particularly fond of estate sales because the quality and workmanship that you’ll find in an antique coffee table or even contemporary coffee tables that are a few decades old is particularly solid. Not to say that you can’t find modern coffee tables with the same workmanship, but you’ll be paying an arm and a leg for it, and we’re trying to get you cheap black end tables here.
Amazon is not a bad place to find coffee tables with storage or other coffee tables for that matter, and their prices are pretty good. But they sell new products and you won’t find the same kind of savings as you would at garage sales, estate sales and the like. Another great option for cheap black end tables and other cheap furniture is your local Craigslist or even ebay if you don’t mind an auction and are familiar with how an auction runs. And for that matter, you might want to have a look at local auction houses too. I know in my city, there are at least a couple of auctions per week and I’ve picked up some great deals, and not just on coffee tables.
I’d like to leave you with one last thought. If you have any vacuum coffee makers, those make great feature items for coffee end tables. Okay, seriously, that wasn’t the thought I wanted to leave you with. Cheap black end tables don’t have to start off black. You could find a glass top coffee table that has black wrought iron legs or you could of course find a cheap black glass coffee table. But even if all you found that was in your price range was a white coffee table, what’s to stop you from painting it black and then ending up with your black end table. When you’re living frugally or just trying to exercise financial responsibility you’ll find a way to get those cheap black end tables that you desire.
