Call me cheap, but...

...who else thinks they could pull this off for less than $399?

Or this for $299?

I mean, really, Pottery Barn? Really? What kind of idiot with too much money is actually falling for this? I think both of these are kind of fug, but I'm tempted to try to make them just to prove a point. I can' decide if the reason why I find the new PB catalog so awful is because they dropped the ball this season, or because my tastes have improved beyond mass produced imitation vintage stuff...?

  1. Um, yesss I think it can be done for less than $299! Empty wine bottles (hey they would look great painted as well), pages cut from vintage books... easily done I bet.

    I fell out of love with Poverty Barn about 6 years ago and I think they're headed in the direction of Ethan Allen - overpriced and overdone. Still, their catalog makes for some good DIY inspiration.

    I found your blog by way of yhl - bookmarking it now!
