Restoration Hardware Look-A-Like

There is still time to enter the CSN $80.00 giveaway Here.  Entries will be accepted until midnight 8/23/10.  Good Luck to everyone!

I promised to show you my new Restoration Hardware look-a-like table that I purchased for $379.00 compared to RH price for the same table of $1295. You can read about my obsession to find a similar table at a reasonable price Here.

It's funny how one little table can create so many changes!  Of course we had to pay to have Sheetrock repaired,  new paint color was selected and the wall painted, a wall unit had to be sold to make room and a new lamp, mirror and accessories were purchased.  I have the best husband in the world to go along with my crazy ideas and constant changes.



New $10.00 lamp reminds me of antique wine bottles.




I love the new mirror from Anthropologie...especially at 70% off!




We originally had a large wall unit on this wall. I loved the piece of furniture but it completely blocked the
in-take vent. We noticed this summer that the family room was not cooling as well as the rest of the house and that the air conditioner ran constantly downstairs. This resulted in some very high electric bills.
I really don't like that you can see the vent but we noticed immediately a dramatic difference in the temperature of this room and I know it will pay off in our electric bill.

I have a busy day tomorrow working on a project I have been putting off for two years. Thanks for dropping by and all your kind comments.
Fondly,
Sherry

hi sherry,
love the vignette and the new lamp. the table is beautiful with those planks and column style legs.
have you considered spray painting the vent the same color as the wall? that would make it somewhat "disappear".

What an awesome find - definitely jig-worthy!! : )
It looks beautiful! Great job!

Sherry, Sherry, Sherry, can I come live with you and just gaze at that wonderful table and vignette you have created? OMG I LOVE all of it. Looks like a magazine spread. That lamp was ten dollars oh my. You have all the things I love on that table and above it. I love those mirrors. If you want to make the vent less noticeable paint it the same color as the wall and it will blend right in. I have painted most of ours and need to do the one in my bedroom too. Now I want one of those tables.

Beautiful entrance table and vignette!

What a gorgeous vignette! I love every single element you used! The table is stunning...a beautiful replica of the Restoration Hardware table! The mirror from Anthro is to die for...I would have moved heaven and earth to get all of those gorgeous goodies into that spot!

Oh my...stunning!

Enjoy!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this table, Sherry! You done good, girl! I expect that you paid considerably less for it, hence the happiness factor. : )

I second the idea of painting out the vent the color of the wall. It will be so less noticeable to you. Of course, a large fern-like plant in front of it will still allow air to flow but block it just as well.

French-Kissed said...

Your table is an amazing look alike...I think you just wanted it so much that it found you! The entire vignette looks great and I agree with the others' suggestions to paint the grill out in the wall color. After doing this, you might also want to consider further obscuring it with a slavaged piece of wrought iron work, possibly faux painting it with several shades of grey, taupe, cream so it adds another layer of interest without calling huge attention to itself. If you like this idea, I can email you a photo of gate finished in these colors so you could take a close look for replicatig the patina. Enjoy your fabulous new table and this absolutely wonderful new space you have created!

The entire vignette looks fantastic, Sherry! You did a beautiful job grouping these things and displaying them. The mirror, the lamp, the accessories, that table...Love it all. Oh, and I LOVE the giant cloche/topiary form. I saw some online (not sure they are that big) and I want a pair so badly! This just looks fantastic!

Hi Sherry,

The Anthro mirror is perfect and so is the lamp.

Good grief, that is gorgeous! I used to have a pair of urns just like the one on your table. Makes me wish I hadn't gotten rid of them (but mine never looked that good anyway!)

Mimi said...

That table is fantabulous!

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Wow, your piece is stunning and I am crazy about the vignette you have created on it. What a lovely piece. All of your pots, urns and plants are lovely. The mirror is fabulous too. Your tall wire cloche is so unique and what a wonderful piece. The whole wall area is fabulous. Love, love, love it. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

Sarah said...

Sherry, this looks terrific. Love that new mirror. It has fabulous character. Your vignettes are charming with that huge urn full of shells. Everything plays off of each other to make a stunning wall.
Perhaps you could paint the vent the same color as the wall to help in blend in or find a large basket that you could fill with something that would sit on the shelf in front of the vent. Regardless, this new arrangement looks beautiful and if it helps with the AC all the better. Gotta have the AC working efficiently! ~ Sarah

Chari at Happy To Design said...

It really is perfect...you must be very pleased with this transformation!!! I love the large urn with the shells and ohhh, that humongous wire cloche is "to die for"!!! Wherever did you find that! It's fabulous!!!

LLH Designs said...

I loved your comment on my blog. Thank you!!! You are SO right...the table needs to find me at this point. I've done all a person can do. Sounds like you had a similar story with your console, and look at this beauty! And the PRICE! I'm especially loving the mirror at 70% off! You are one blessed woman! Happy for you!

Blondie's Journal said...

The table is gorgeous and what a great deal. It pays off to do your research! I love the mirror and the great price on the mirror from Antro, too. Nicely done! :-)

The Pennington Point said...

That table is a-mazing. The whole wall is gorgeous and very inviting. I want to see the rest of the room. I'd paint that return air floor vent to match the wall and it would disappear! Lisa~

Natasha said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I am bookmarking this post and am going to refer to it when I am doing my next hall table re-do-I love this!!!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

Where in the world did you get that lamp? It's fantastic. Of course the table is great but that lamp is perfect on it.

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

This all looks so beautiful! The table is amazing. I'm loving that mirror. I wonder if it's online. I am going to go check!

Sue said...

What a nice look, Sherry! Absolutely love that narrow table- I may be looking for something like this for our stores when I go to the furniture market in Oct. Nice touch with the one tilted urn. I have a vignette in my dining room where one of my obelisks and one of the bowls lay on their sides- the cleaning lady and several friends always wanted to stand them up ! LOL
Great lamp!!!

Oh my!! What a gorgeous table and setting! I LOVE it! I am a HUGE fan of topiaries!! I have a really hard time passing them up when I find them! (thinking about these 3 darling topiaries I found at Home Goods the other day... sigh... I did not get them...) I love the wire topiary beside the table and the table itself is fantastic! The mirror...So Gorgeous! I love your style! Great inspiration!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog too and for your comments! :)

Sherry it is "Absolutely Beautiful Decorating". I think painting it the same color as the wall would definately blend it in more but, coming from a "Interior Decorator Wanna Be". How would it look if you painted, stained and rusted up the grill and made it look like it was part of the decor? That is what I would do if it was mine. And, place objects around it to make it look as thou it was put their intentionally. Denise
