Look for Less: Pottery Barn 'Banks' Pedestal Dining Table

Pottery Barn lookalike dining table at Home Depot?!
Well guys, I finally did it! I ordered a dining table from - of all places - Home Depot! I knew I wanted a solid wood table that could seat 10 for under $1,000. And after months (years?!) of searching, I found a dining table that I absolutely LOVE that fits all my criteria, too. The table I chose is the Home Decorator's Collection Aldridge Extendable Dining Table, which is currently on sale for $899 (was $1,499) at

It's made of solid mango wood and features a beautiful pedestal base, which to me is the perfect look I envisioned for transitional dining room decor. That's a fancy name for a mix of styles (when you can't really pick a favorite lol) - it's classic, a little farmhouse/rustic, and you can mix and match with a variety of chairs to give it a more updated, modern look too.

I went ahead and ordered the matching bench as well (now $293, was $489). I'll update you with photos once my pieces arrive (sometime in May).

The table gets almost 5 stars from most reviewers on, which was another plus for me.

And it doesn't hurt that the Home Depot table looks a lot like this best-selling Pottery Barn 'Banks' table, which costs $2,500. The tables are similar in size. The Pottery Barn table is a mix of wood and veneer.

If you're looking for a wood farmhouse dining table, I also love this one featuring a trestle base on sale for $659. It seats 6.

Now I just need new dining room chairs. If you have suggestions, I'd love to hear them! And if you're looking for new furniture on a budget, definitely check out the selection at Other sites I recommend are World Market, Wayfair and Walmart (love their Better Homes and Gardens collection).

Hi! How did the table and bench turn out. I’m looking into the same exact table and I accidentally found your post. I’m glad I did!

Hi! I'm very happy with my home depot bench and dining table. It's everything I wanted. Very solid, heavy wood, good construction, easy to clean, and it's huge, big enough for everyone! No complaints, I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

Still loving your table. How would you describe the color?

Hi! I'd describe it as a gray color (gray-brown). Love it so much!
