How to Get Industrial Chic Furniture For Less

A Little Imagination and Some Work and You Can Have Trendy Decor!

Industrial furniture and accessories are the hottest trend in decor right now. If you have been to any of the store that specialize in industrial, like Dot & Bo, or Joss and Main, I am sure you have been shocked by the prices. A simple dining table with a wood top and metal bottom and no chairs can rock a $1700 price tag. A simple side table is usually $549 to $799. The prices are extremely high, to say the least.

Have you ever wondered how you could get some of this avant-garde furniture for your home, without having to pay an arm and a leg? I wondered this myself because I love industrial furniture but I cannot afford to buy any …..or I thought I couldn’t. This all changed one day when I was shopping on Amazon for a gift for my husband. I was looking through the tool section and I ran across a tool bench that was every bit as “industrial chic” as the $1700 one I had been pining for, for months! This gave me an a idea and I started looking at real industrial, tool type furniture and I found a lot……and at much cheaper prices than you will find at those pricey stores.

All these items need is a bit of finshing, like sanding, polyurethaning , painting and distressing. I would happily contribute a little elbow grease to save hundreds, even thousands of dollars and get some cool, trendy home decor! And it’s not just furniture, you can also get some really awesome industrial light fixtures that are fairly inexpensive compared to what they are in trendy stores, too. All it takes a a little imagination!
