Gold Framed Sketches

Mekenzie’s love for Restoration Hardware runs pretty deep, and she’s had many successes at replicating the look without the cost. She shares her latest and greatest over at Interiors by Kenz – gold-framed wall art. What I love about Kenz’s knockoff is that she incorporated her own love for aviation by framing Leonardo Da Vinci sketches of flying machines, making her art stylish, meaningful, and cheap!

Tree Stump Table

Lovers of all things Restoration Hardware, Lidy from Hello Lidy and her husband are always on the lookout for less costly ways to bring the look home. They scored a salvaged tree stump that was headed for the chopping block (literally!) and transformed it into a trendy side table. The total cost for their table came in at $20, which is an amazing price compared to a whopping $695 for their RH inspiration!

Kristen from Lipstick and Sawdust just completed the latest addition to her “Jewel Box” guest room – an upholstered bench that she planned and built herself! Kristen saved money on materials by using foam from clearance IKEA cushions and some scrap wood pieces. I love how Kristen always finds ways to save money while still producing gorgeous results!

Distressed Black Armoire

Natalie from Sophisticated Yellow came across an ad for Restoration Hardware’s Montpellier Armoire and fell in love with its dark, bold, and commanding look. Not surprisingly, it was also expensive. However, Natalie happened to have two old armoires sitting in her garage that looked remarkably similar. A few coats of paint later and some light sanding was all it took to transform her old armoires into Restoration Hardware’s black beauties.
