Well, here goes, my first Copy Cat from a magazine actually I found it in a Pottery Barn catalog! It’s the September 2011 one and it’s on page128 if you would like to take a peek. My friend Debbie from Debbie Doo’s Blogging and Blabbing is having a Copy Cat Challenge linky party and I decided to go because when I found this page I just couldn’t believe it and Deb’s party just popped into my mind and I knew I had to join in when she decided to have her second one!
Here’s what the picture looked like in the PB catalog…
My first thought was “Hey, I have the biggest prop there, my couch! I’ve always wanted the PB slipcovers but now I don’t honestly know if I do. The next two pictures are close-ups!
Oh, how I’d love to have the coffee table and the Manhattan picture above the couch but it’s priced at $299.00 but there are always knock offs so maybe one day I’ll get lucky!
I love the lamp too!
So are you ready? Here’s my copy cat! First I must say that photo assistants have to have the hardest but fun job, I was wore out by the time I felt that I could photograph it!
I just used what I had but I did buy the brown pillow cover at the Dollar Tree and I stopped at a church rummage sale this morning and was hoping to find something's that would come close to the catalog picture. I did find four glasses that you see there for a $1.00!
I did plan on getting some faux limes but that never happened and last week I passed on an ice bucket at GW, now I could kick myself but I just wasn’t thinking and was more than likely in a hurry!
I did put a Pottery Barn bottle on the table that I moved from the entry way into here and it’s staying because it gives alot more room than the other one did! (Still would like to have the glass bottle lamp)
I hope you liked my copy cat, it sure was a challenge, sure I could have went out and spent money on something’s but I don’t think it would have been as much fun as putting it all together like I did and it also taught me something, that I can have what’s in a PB catalog picture, I just have to hunt for it and be on the look out for something that is close to it.
Have a great day, it’s beautiful here in Pa. in the 70’s!!!
I’m joining these parties, thanks for hosting ladies!
