We field requests for product recommendations all the time, and they change depending on the month or weather. This time of year? The outdoor table asks start to trickle in. We keep an eye out for deals on well-constructed, appeals-to-everyone, and affordable options—and if they’re small-space–friendly, all the better. If you’re not in the market for a six-person dining set, nor something so petite it’s just big enough for a single martini, this dainty side table is the comfortable in-between.

At its narrowest point, it’s a mere 9 inches in diameter. But the hourglass design provides a tabletop of more than 16 inches, which shoppers share holds more than just one item. In fact, one confirms they can comfortably fit a drink, book, and little snack at the same time. Plus the lightweight, open design not only frees up visual clutter, but the base is roomy enough to slip a puck light into. Voilà! A DIY outdoor lantern

But this isn’t just a great buy as a space-saving hack. It also caught our eye for the five fun finishes it comes in; our favorites include a neutral matte black, crisp white, fiery cherry red, and aquatic teal, all of which are currently on sale for varying prices at Amazon. Better yet, the latter is a whopping 58% off.

Others have been equally as impressed by the solid iron frame. “This table is great! It’s made of metal, so it’s sturdy, and it was supereasy to assemble (simply attach the top to the bottom clamps),” one reviewer writes. More echo the simplicity of the install, which consists of twisting two pieces together, and how it’s been just as easy to clean.

Rusting has been reported by some shoppers, but plenty more have had no issues with wear and tear. One reviewer shares that theirs has even been left out through rain and snow for a few months (and still looks new!). Concerned at all? Consider bringing this one inside or placing a cover over it during a heavy storm to extend its lifetime. And when your first guest (or guests) of the season inquires where you got it, they don’t need to know we tipped you off.
