When planning my guest bedroom redecoration, I searched high and low for bedside tables that complemented my intended aesthetic: muted, natural, with a worldly accent. What a challenge that was! Everything I was seeing was incredibly expensive, not real wood, or just kind of blah. I discovered this mango wood end table from Overstock.com with a finish that reminded me of mottled tortoiseshell and fell head over heels for them. I'm glad I jumped on ordering them because they're now out of stock!
Aren't they pretty?

The tables are on the shorter side, but I like that. I'm happy with them because I also know that, given the finish and size of the tables, they will work well throughout my home.
What do you think? Do you see the resemblance to a mottled tortoiseshell finish?
