I'm finally moving into a one bedroom by myself and am looking forward to being done with roommates (knock on wood). I am looking for a counter height black table including 4 chairs w/ backs. The catch is that I can really only afford to spend $150-$200 MAX. Hope you can help! :)"
Hiya Karmin! Phew, this was a HARD one! We had one hell of a time trying to find a 5 piece pub-height black table and chair set for under 200 dollars! If none of these options will work, or you're firm in your budget, consider using alternative sources for your kitchen table set. If you don't mind gently used items and doing a little research, Freecycle and Craigslist may offer you some real gems. You can also check out your local liquidation warehouse. Most towns and cities have a store or two that sell overstocked or discontinued furniture at discounted prices. Good luck!
1 - Winsome Spectrum 3 Piece Round Table with 2 Swivel Chairs Set ($200) Comes with only 2 chairs for the 200 dollar price.
4 - ACME Espresso Pub Table Set ($135) You can also order extra chairs with this set, but at $70 each.
5 - Target Black Pub Table 3-pc. Set ($200, on sale) Best bang for your buck when it comes to sturdy construction, though you're down 2 chairs.
