Desire/Acquire: Cafe Tables

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.

I prefer wooden bistro tables.

meh, I used to really be into the cafe tables, but not so much anymore.

$119 for that little itty bitty table is still out of my budget! It is certainly better than over 600 though, but I am also not a fan of that style. Where I live it soars into the 100's frequently in the summer and I think that original table would give me third degree burns anyway!

I'm shopping for the same kind of thing. I'm not sure how that IKEA one would do outdoors, so I've got my eye on this one at at CB2 for $179:
