I am officially annoyed with PB- no, not peanut butter...I am referring to the popular, mid-high end home decor national chain. 

I was flipping through the bed and bath catalog last night and came across these:

all yours for $120- are you fing kidding me?!!!!
Ummmm- I realize that I am a quasi- DIYr but seriously people- please, for the love of being anti big-business DO NOT spend 120 bucks on faux weathered frames with out a picture, let alone glass in them! 

If you want the same look- go to a local antique store/tag sale/swap meet/flea market and pick up a few frames for a couple bucks a piece, OR go to your local TJMaxx/Marshall's and grab a couple interesting shaped antiquey looking frames, paint them white- and distress them with some sand paper, (or if you really want to go crazy get some crackle finish from a local craft store to shabby-chic them up)- this look would probably run $50 max for frames, paint, sand paper and faux finish.
I feel let down by Pottery Barn and their lack of originality in the home decor department- seriously.


  1. Now , tell us how you really! I agree PB has been a bit of a let down for me too these days. Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog. You rock!!!
