Console Tables For Less Than $250

I love me a good console table. So much that we have two in our house. One resides in our entryway and the other serves as a sofa table behind our, well, sofa.

If you’re looking for a piece of furniture that serves a purpose and is also attractive, a console table is the way to go.

One thing I love about console tables is that if you go with a timeless look, the piece will last you for years. We’ve had the console table in our entryway for six and a half years, and I’m still not tired of it.

Another thing that I love about console tables is that you can move them around. Don’t like it in your entryway anymore? Alright, it can become a sofa table. Not cutting it as a sofa table? Move it under your wall-mounted TV. I’ve even seen them used as kitchen islands on casters.

Lastly, console tables can provide a decent amount of storage while not screaming ‘THINGS ARE BEING STORED HERE!’. Slap some baskets on the table to stash away and hide all of those toys, shoes, etc.

So for those of you not wanting to shell out a ton of moolah, I rounded up 8 console tables, in various styles, that are less than $250. Actually, they’re all less than $220, but $250 seemed like a better number, plus there’s taxes and stuff.

Inexpensive console tables! All are less than $250!

I tried my best to find some of the console tables in action in real homes.

We have #2, the Hemnes sofa table, behind the couch in our great room. I haven’t taken photos of it yet, so here it is in action in a different home.

As you can see, the baskets on the bottom hide toys, while other not-so-flashy toys are stored in the smaller compartments. And there’s still room for grown-up looking things like lamps, pictures, and books on top.

I had to include#3, the mirrored console table, because it’s too dang pretty for only a buck fifty.

Now, I wouldn’t suggest this bad boy if you have little kids. Because it would be forever unclean– covered in fingerprints, boogers, snack smears, and lip/mouth prints because what one year old can resist kissing his reflection in a mirrored surface? Unless, you put the table in a room that’s gated off from the little people in your life. Then go on with your bad self.

 While this isn’t the exact same as #6, it’s very similar. If your decor is more rustic, you can’t go wrong with a weathered, X-console table.

  1. We’re in the process of building one that’s similar to #1. The wood cost us like $50 and we had to buy some tools…..and it’s taking far longer than I’d like it to……to build it BUT it will be cheap and nice if it ever gets done. >_>;;;

    1. Good for you! You’re right– building is typically more cost effective, especially with all the free plans on the Internet, but I know sometimes people just don’t have the time, tools, space, or desire to build so buying an inexpensive table is a better route. And I know building can be frustrating and take a while, but it is cool to look at the piece of furniture when you’re done and think “Hey, I built that!” 🙂

      1. We are definitely learning as we go and once it’s done it’ll be worth it. It just annoys me that it ends up being expensive the first time you build something….cuz you have NOOOOO tools. Oh well, it will be cheaper next time around. Hahaha, and it’s worth it in the end anyways. We got our plans from Ana White (of course). I hope we can carve out some time to get it assembled soon! He’s been doing most of the cuts, and I’m looking forward to staining or painting it. I love all of the options you have posted and I kept pointing out the ikea options on our last trip…like oooo we would have had a table if we just bought it. I’m impatient LOL

  2. Yay! Can’t wait for another podcast! I’ve been missing them.

  4. Great console tables! I have a console table in my living room that I got for less than $150 on Amazon. I bought an unfinished console table. I then stained the top with a walnut stain and painted the legs a buttery yellow with chalk paint. I love my new table!

    1. Could you post a pic of that. It sounds beautiful
