NOEL Wall Décor

Noel christmas sign

After receiving lots of love for her Pottery Barn-inspired NOEL sign last Christmas, Richella from Imparting Grace shares the simple steps she took to create it. While it may not be iron like the inspiration, Richella’s pretty letters cost only $10 to make. And, quite honestly, finished with some oil-rubbed bronze paint they look just like the real deal!

The girls from Shanty 2 Chic are such an inspiration when it comes to knockoff furniture pieces and totally make me want to hone my woodworking skills! Just check out this awesome library-style coffee table Ashley built with plans from Ana White. The generous tabletop and drawer storage makes it ideal for both decorating and daily use.

Apothecary Media Console

As part of her family room makeover, Jessica from Four Generations One Roof joined forces with her dad to build a new media console for the space. She was inspired by a $1,000 console from Pottery Barn and modified the size and finish to fit the room’s light and airy new look. Jessica even scored a piece of reclaimed lumber for the top that adds a lovely rustic element.

Window Frame Corkboard

Morena of Morena’s Corner and contributor at Crafts Unleashed was looking for an attractive way to create a real pin board in her craft room. Pottery Barn had a beautiful chalkboard that she liked, so Morena borrowed the design as inspiration for her bulletin board. I love the window frame look and how each section could be designated to a specific purpose or member of the family for further organization.

Glass Bottle Lamp

Jeannine of The Concrete Cottage has long adored, but couldn’t afford, the glass bottle lamps at Pottery Barn. No matter how deep her love affair though, she simply could never justify paying $280 for a glass bottle and a shade! She can, however, buy a large discounted bottle from Michael’s, make a faux cork to top the bottle, tear apart an old lamp for parts, and turn it all into one convincing knock off!

Bathroom Storage Ladder

Kathleen from Charm Bracelet Diva {at Home} got a brand new storage ladder for her bathroom, and it sure wasn’t by spending $279 at Pottery Barn! Kathleen found a far less expensive route by repurposing the old monkey bars from her kids’ swingset. I always love creative storage solutions, and the fact that Kathleen’s project is a knock off and an upcycle makes it all the sweeter to me {wink}!

Framed Number Art

Right after seeing a set of numbered frames from Pottery Barn, Jeanine from Okio B Designs found some similar oval frames at a local thrift store. Don’t you love when it works out like that! Jeanine stenciled numbers onto fabric and popped them into her frames for a knockoff that cost her only $4!

Oversized Wall Flashcard

Trina from A Few Miner Adjustments turned a piece of luan from her garage into an oversized flashcard for her living room wall. All it took was some paint and vinyl to create this décor that was ideal for a household of teachers. I love this idea for a playroom too and think a set of flashcards would be a great way to decorate a large wall on a dime.
