Friday Finds For Less – Dining Rooms


Who doesn’t want the look for less? I’m starting a fun new series called “Friday Finds for Less”. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have expensive taste. My dad used to say, “If Laura likes it, I can’t afford it!” But even though I like the finer things…I don’t (and won’t) pay those higher price tags. I wait for sales or shop around until I can find the same look for less. A great example of this would be my newly remodeled dining room. I saved over $1500 dollars just shopping around.

This new series will cover many areas. I’ll be sharing rooms for less, fashion for less, travel for less (??). If there’s a cheaper option…I’ll show you! I thought Friday would be the perfect day for this new series too because who doesn’t like to shop on the weekends, am I right?!

As you might have guessed by now, this week’s theme is dining rooms. I was inspired by two different dining rooms. To shop either room just click on the thumbprint images below.

First up is this dining room from Pottery Barn. The wood table with those iron bars….gorgeous! The lighting is super cute and I love the open shelving on the back wall.

I was able to find a nice table, chairs, some lighting, shelves and a few accessories for much less.

Next up is this lovely dining room found in Architectural Digest. I think we all know rooms found in here are beautiful and they ain’t cheap. 😉

So…l searched around and found a similar table, chairs, gorgeous pendant light, the bookcase and an accessory.

Speaking of dining rooms and sales…I just wanted to let you know that my dining room table is on sale right now too.


It’s a saving of over $200 big ones….just saying. Sales are our friends, right? 🙂

  1. Great ideas on the budget swaps for this beauitful room! I love your dining room table, it is just lovely!

  2. Love your dining room table – thought it was a RH table. Great deal for $500! I really want a nice dining room table in black wood. Just featured a post on kitchen/dining room remodel that we did recently and that’s what I need to focus on next – getting some new furniture. Love your picks. #Inspiration Gallery Linkup

  3. Well as you can imagine from my blog name I’m a great one to shop around, find deals and substitutions! You hit the nail on the head!

    Thanks for bringing this by to Throwback Thursday! 🙂
