Ball and claw end table – Chic & Cheap

It was love at first sight when I first spotted this Louis side table from Anthropologie:  But at $598 plus $75 shipping, it’s a little um, pricey.  My “cheap” version? This lovely circa 1930 shabby chic white end table I got at my favorite antique dealer in NYC for $125: At first glance, not so similar.  But they […]
