Disappearing tables

Last Sunday, I went a little nuts and bought a bunch of houseplants at Ikea. Once I got them home and potted up, I realized that we have a dearth of side tables. So, I want places to put plants (and beverages and remotes and maybe feet), but I don't want to clutter up the joint visually.

I'd been eying cb2's acrylic nesting tables for a while, but after browsing the site, found I preferred the Monacle [sic] side table (possibly because it shows up in the apartment of that muscle-bound, tattooed pixie on Color Splash):

(BTW, it's backordered until the end of April, despite what the website may say.)

I also ordered this acrylic side table from Overstock:

Both are on sale for about $100 each.

I'm still toying with the idea of getting this for the entry way. $295's a little much for acrylic, though, don't you think?

That last link looks like this Ikea hack.

And yes, $300 is too much for acrylic.

Awesome catch on the Ikea hack. I really need to add that site to my RSS feed.
