Hooked on This Blue Sideboard

This is exactly the kind of sideboard I've been searching for to use in my dining room. I'm trying to get a beachy vibe in the room and this would be perfect! I found it at Wisteria and couldn't stop staring at it. So I posted it here so you could stare at it, too.

Unfortunately for me, it's $499, and another $100 gets tacked on for shipping. There are a few more important things I'll need to use that $600 for besides a pretty sideboard table, but hey, a girl can dream, right?

*Sigh.*

I thought it would be fun to join my own Hooked on Fridays blog party--something I host at the end of each week to celebrate the things that make us happy. Hop on over to my other blog to see what everyone else is hooked on today!

  1. That is so pretty, but you are right! It's a little costly.

  2. It definitely has a beachy vibe..., use it as an inspiration piece..., I'm sure you can do better than 499.

  3. If you're handy...you could probably make that sweet sideboard and at a definite savings. It is gorgeous!! Hopping over to your other blog to see what everyone is hooked on.

  4. I'll just bet a handy carpenter could build this with your picture. Even with his labor charge and materials I bet it wouldn't be $600!

  5. This sideboard certainly does say beach cottage! No wonder you're hooked. I hope you find exactly what you want at the price you want to pay. ~Arleen

  6. Very pretty. I bet you could build a sideboard just like it for a lot less than $600. Or you might get lucky and spot one at a garage sale or thrift store :-)

  7. Oy, that is gorgeous. Seeing all this cottage-y, beachy stuff makes me want that style. I feel so conflicted!!

  8. I bet you could find something very similar if you keep your eyes peeled and break out some spray paint! Love it...

  10. What a beautiful sideboard and perfect for a beach house. I love Wisteria, but I do believe you could replicate this sideboard for a lot less.

  11. It's gorgeous! You have such a good eye, you'll probably find one eventually for $50. :)

  13. This is a nice "sideboard." Looks like two benches or coffee tables stacked on top of each other. You could make one, I'm sure!

  14. This is perfect for challenging a crafty husband. This sideboard is very handsome and well proportioned. The bowls, vases and candlesticks are great too and double the costs.

  15. It is indeed the perfect shade of blue. I can imagine how pretty a pitcher of lemonade would look on the top of it.

  16. Wisteria rocks my world! In my dreams, that is.

  17. That would not be so hard to build yourself. Look for an old farm house style table at a yard sale or good will (they can be found for less than $20 a lot of times). Chop the legs in half. Build a shelf for the bottom with a 2x4 and some ply wood, then go around it with some pretty molding. Screw the bottom half of the legs into the bottom base. Then make another shelf just as you did the base, and screw the top portion on top, then using GOOD wood glue, put it onto the bottom base with the legs going into the corners of the 2x4 made frame. Prime it. Paint it. Distress it. Could be done for less than $100 -- easy peasy!

  18. Okay, so I was coming over to say you could totally make this. But, as always, many smarter, and quicker, ladies said it first. I would think you could find a couple coffee tables that could be put together for this look. Good luck!

  19. I think its yard sale time- I bet you could find something very similar to that and get out the spray paint & sand paper. Very nice though- but not for the price- geez what are these people thinking!

  20. I love how confident you all are in my furniture-making and painting skills! If I find something cheap enough so it doesn't matter if I ruin it, I might just take your advice and give it a shot. You've got me thinking now... :-)

  21. You could build that yourself....I'm already breaking it down in my head! It's beautiful. It's perfect for a beach house or any house!

  22. Hi Julia :)

    I can see why you're hooked on it, but you could totally make it yourself. Go and measure how big you want it and have HD or Lowes cut the wood for you add some look-a-like legs and some paint and you could have it for about $100 :)

    Love Wisteria!

    Happy Friday Julia

  24. IT looks like 2 old coffee tables stacked on top of each other then placed on the top of another old coffee table.

  25. I bet someone could build that for less than $600. Great find! Love the color.

  27. Wisteria is based in Dallas---and has an outlet store in the city. Often, current catalog items are for sale there--at as much as 50% off. Also, any catalog item can be picked up at their warehouse at 10% off and minus shipping. Just thought I would mention this for people close to Dallas.

  30. Julia you know what that looks like to me ... two short pews or benches stacked on top of one another with a built up base ... now that would cost less than $400 ... nice to find you here too le xo
