Pretty Things {Wood Bead Chandelier}

One of the most talked about items in my home is my dining room chandelier.  Unfortunately, it has been discontinued, but I have seen it pop up on One Kings Lane a time or two!  I knew when I started to select lighting that I wanted a wood bead chandelier.  Here is what we ended up with.....

Since the one I have is no longer available, I did some research and found some similar options!  I actually really love all of these....while they are all a little different, they give the same overall feel!

Break the Bank vs. Cheapskate: {Factory Cart Table}

I spend several hours a week sourcing items for my design clients and often see amazing look-a-like items that have a more expensive version at a higher end store!  If I fall in love with a pricey item, I know it must have a less expensive twin out there somewhere and I usually have great luck finding it! 

With that said, I look forward to sharing my fabulous, frugal finds in my "Break the Bank vs. Cheapskate" posts!

These factory cart tables have been very popular thanks to the rustic, industrial trend that started a few years ago and seem to be staying around for the long haul!
