I am always inspired by Pottery Barn, I think a lot of us are, and why not? They have expert stylists, endless props and merchandise, and super photography. What's not to love?
So instead of hoping and dreaming that the Pottery Barn Fairy would bestow endless wishes on me....I got to work.
Enter ball finial. I have seen this recreated a time or two already and I really do love it. The weathered finish, slightly shabby yet classic look. I'm going to give it a try-I can do this!
I was really excited about the finished product, and the Pottery Barn Fairy is mad because it turned out so well. She's sulking in the corner...
Enter Boxwood Wreath. This is a loverly picture from PB website but I was initially inspired when I was leafing through the catalog....
For the Christmas season I loved this boxwood wreath and the clocks hanging from the center...very inspiring.
Of course Pottery Barns Version is fresh boxwood, but I made mine from artificial boxwood. I really loved it during Christmas.
I didn't hang clocks, but a monogram for my last name that I made from a vintage book page and a tag....I actually haven't taken it down, it hangs right inside the front door. Boxwood isn't too seasonal for me.
So then I decided that if I was going to leave it up all the time, I should give it a little Valentine's Day Trimming!
The Pottery Barn Fairy is really mad now!
Enter chalkboard platter. I don't really care for the rectangle version, but I really admired the oval one. With a Dollar Tree platter and a steady hand, I was able to recreate the look .
Here is the
The Pottery Barn Fairy distracted me and I forgot to take a picture of the platter before I poured on the paint. She was trying to woo me with those beautiful bird plates...have you seen those? They are fantastic!
I think you can visualize the before....it was a white platter...:)
Well, that's it for now, I'm sure that Pottery Barn will continue to inspire me, time and time again!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're inspired!
