    Promising review: "We just bought a living room set and there was no way I was going to spend even more money on end tables, especially with kids. I love how these end tables look. I didn't notice how the metal legs are shiny metallic in the picture, but it works. I was thinking maybe someday I can paint them if I want to change the look. Overall I'm so happy with the look and quality of the two tables I bought. They hold a lot and the bottom is extra storage. I'm also pleased that they were assembled when I went to pick them up from the store. I might buy a third." —Target reviewer

    Promising review: "Beautiful, well made, and the perfect size. I have been wanting a new utensil holder for some time but couldn’t find anything that matched my style. Found this and knew it was the one. This item would work with basically any kitchen decor. Fits all my utensils with room for more but doesn’t take up too much counter space. Even the cashier complimented my purchase and said she was going to snag herself one after her shift!" —DPrince

    Price: $14.99

    30. An adorable little faux fiddle-leaf fig tree in a gold pot to bring some life into any corner. I think I need one for my drab cubicle where a real plant definitely wouldn't survive.
