For today, I channeled my inner Sabrina Soto to show you this high-low chair vignette and offer suggestions on how to create a high-end look for less.
How many of you watch the High Low Project with Sabrina Soto? It’s one of my favorite shows! If you love it (or even if you have never heard of it), keep reading… I have a surprise for you at the end of the post…
This Thatcher Upholstered Wingback Chair from Pottery Barn retails at full price for $859.00. It has a gorgeous nail head trim and dark wood legs.
This Pedestal Side Table from Ballard Designs retails at full price for $595.00
The total comes out to…$1,454.00 not including tax (or shipping).
Our library is still a work in progress, and purchasing a small rug is on the to-do list (always something, right?). But looking beyond that, here is the low end chair vignette.
I found the chair at the Habitat Store for $40.00. I love this store because all items are donated and the proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity. Win-win for all! The pedestal side table was a yard sale find at $5.00. While the low end chair doesn’t have the full nail head trim like the high end, it still maintains the same balance. The pedestal side table is smaller and has a slightly different profile, but overall, this is my frugal way to recreate the high end look.
For under $50.00, I was able to frugally recreate a similar look in our home.
I took a high end wingback chair vignette at $1,454 and recreated the look for $1,404 less. What did we do with the $1,404 savings? We put that money into the downstairs guest bathroom remodel which was needed after a waterfall sized leak.

More or Less Series by Stacy Risenmay
Are you familiar with Stacy Risenmay’s blog Not Just a Housewife? I don’t know if other bloggers have “blog crushes” but she is my #1 blog crush – and Stacy – I say that in a very sincere and non-stalkery way!!! She was recently given an incredible opportunity. The new TV show, American Dream Builders is hosted by Nate Berkus where they create high end rooms. The show airs on NBC on Sunday night. On Monday morning, Stacy’s new series, More or Less will show you how to recreate one of those rooms for less. Sabrina Soto, watch out… my girl Stacy is one to watch.
