Take a look around your house: the kitchen, your bedroom, even the bathroom. I’m sure you’ve thought about sprucing things up a bit — until it came time to look at how much it would cost. You see, upgrading your home is almost never cheap. And personally? I’ve spent thousands of dollars on renovations over the years that only wound up going out of style shortly afterward. But you’re smarter than me.
That’s why you’ve come to check out all these home products that totally look designer, but won’t leave your bank account hurting the day after. Case in point? I’ve got stylish counter chairs, gorgeously affordable dressers, and even a sleek ashtray that looks more like a Faberge egg than it does a cigarette dumping ground. So what are you waiting for? Those velvety-soft chairs aren’t going to buy themselves — and that lovely shade of blue is almost out of stock, too.
