Pottery Barn Catalog

If you are like me, you recently received the first of what will probably be many Pottery Barn catalogs this season.

And if you are even more like me, you thumb through it and comment to your husband how cute the stuff is but how ridiculously expensive it is, too.

And then if you are basically my long lost twin sister that my parents never told me about, you rip out a few of the pages that inspire you because you feel that you can duplicate the look in one of your fits of craftiness, but then you never really do because you feel that projects must be accomplished in order of importance and clean laundry for your 8 month old seems to rank slightly higher that making a wreath because he will have to wear that onesie for the third day if you don't wash a load.

So if the Pottery Barn catalog has the same affect on you, Frugal Hacks has a great post on ways to get that PB look at a fraction of the cost. Let me know if you stick it to the Pottery Barn man and make something exquisite without spending what they have the nerve to ask for their stuff!

Too Funny........I have stacks of magazine clippings of things I plan to do, had hoped to do, or never will get to do now that I have a newborn. But, I'm all about making it before I pay high dollar for it.
