As I think about warmer weather and less rainy skies, I'm excited to spend more time outside at a sidewalk cafe. However, it's sometimes hard to get to a cafe to lounge at one of their outdoor tables, so I'm hoping to get one for my own house. I adore this Pensi Cafe Table (shown here), but at $692, it's a little out of my budget.
To see a more economical alternative,
Leave it to my favorite cheap and chic standby, Ikea, to carry a similar table. The Billsta Table ($119.99) has a very similar look to the Pensi, but at a much more reasonable price point. You could even repaint or decoupage the table surface in silver to get closer to the Pensi's look.
