I saw this French bistro outdoor dining set and loved it! I am on the look out for French outdoor tables and chairs since we are building a French Farmhouse. For my outdoor furniture, I was debating between French farm table vs French bistro table. As I have the French farmhouse table as my main dining table already, I was leaning towards the French bistro look outside.
Ok, so anyway, back to the picture. I saw this picture in Williams-Sonoma Home magazine and fell in love! I really like the all black bistro chairs. But then I started adding up the individual elements and wow!! I thought, with a little searching I bet I could find the same look for less! Let's see...
WS Parisian Dining table $3495
Williams Sonoma chair $350
WS Greek Key Pillow $79
WS Outdoor rug 6x9 $395
WS hurricane vase, $69
Outdoor 10' umbrella, $495
Total (with four chairs): $9033!!
Parisian Bistro Style Look:
Parisian Table, Deal $1395
Mini bistro table, Steal perfect for small yards! $129
French Bistro black and white $159 // chair number two $209 // all black wooden French bistro chair set of two $260
Steal Greek Key Pillow $34
Outdoor rug with pattern , 6x9 $133
Hurricane Vase, $29
Outdoor 9' umbrella, $110
Outdoor 7' umbrella ($79) for smaller yards
Total (with 4 of these chairs as I like them the best): $2306!
For small yards, the mini bistro table, two chairs, and smaller umbrella the total cost is = $722, so the price difference from the magazine look is... $8311 cheaper.
Well, I had fun putting together this post! It goes to show that you can start with an inspiration photo and end with the look for a lot less! I style like the all black chairs better though - nothing a little paint can't fix!
