Don’t get me wrong, I anxiously await the arrival of my Potterybarn magazine every month. It’s always filled with the latest and greatest design inspiration and fills me with so many DIY ideas of how I can pull off the same look for less. Though endlessly beautiful, my budget does not always allow for some of the high price tag items I often earmark on the pages. So despite my day dreams of one day owning the real deal, I opt to try and find “knockoffs” of some of their best stuff. My top knockoff to date is my slip covered sectional. I dreamt of that PB Basic slipcovered L- shaped sectional for years! It had been cut and pasted to many a design dream board, but I figured coming in at $3,500 it would stay that way, just a dream.
Until the glorious day I came upon the Ektorp Sectional from Ikea! Comfortably priced at 899.99 I had found my couch soulmate and couldn’t type in my CC info fast enough. It even still brings a smile to my face when I think of it and this was several years ago.
Since then to catch that same buzz I routinely scour the net to find my “knockoffs”. So, today I thought I’d share a few of my most recent finds from the PB fall decor line! Hope you enjoy it and maybe catch a little buzz too! 😉
