Debbiedoo’s Copy Cat!

Well, you know me, when I do a copy cat it’s always Pottery Barn, just can’t get enough of their catalogs, but their prices are just to high for me! Just watch out if I ever hit the Power Ball though (which I don’t play but hubby does ) lol. Anyway, here is the page I copied.
This is as close as I got it! I got the brainy idea to buy a dropcloth at Lowe’s for $21.00 instead of PB’s $99.00 one! Brought it home and washed it and it did make the dropcloth really soft. I may bleach it next time it goes in the wash.
I’m a little disappointed in it but it sure isn’t blue anymore and does brighten up the room. Now for a new rug:) My husband doesn’t want to hear about that. Ha!
I’ll tell you about the picture above the couch in another post that I did today!
I’ll be joining these great parties:
Copy Cat Challenge @ Debbiedoo’s
Treasure Hunt Thursday @ From My Front Porch to Yours
Redoux Linky Party @ Redoux

Edited: I’m having trouble linking to some parties, I’ll keep trying:)

Well you just can't beat it Rondell. Fabulous choice. I love the pottery barn catalog too, just not always their prices. Thanks for joining me.

I'm a PB lover myself but not loving those prices either. You got it all with your Lowe knock-off. I'd never guess that wasn't the PB version. Great job! I'm off to like your FB page now!

This is GREAT...I,too, like everyone else on the planet, love PB. Every time daughter and I want to decorate something, we run get the PB catalog and start copycatting. Every thing they do looks so awesome, no wonder we all just love it.
Great job!!

I think that looks great, Rondell! I'm with you, love PB style but not price!

cynthia lee designs said... looks it!! I love Pottery Barn too, but not their prices. We have one of their outlet stores that is not too far from here. I love to go there and have gotten a few things on clearance.

You did a great job!! I love PB too! You did a fabulous job creating the look.

Rondell that was a great idea! I like how you figured how to get the look without the price. It certainly does look so much lighter. At least you know now if you want to go with a lighter sofa right? Well done!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

I love pottery barn too! This is a great knock off! If you copy anyone PB is sure one to copy for it's great and chic style! You styled your coffee table to look upscale and simply fabulous!

I love it! Who would've ever thought that dropcloths would become so popular? I have used them everywhere in my house and make no apologies. ha! You will love being able to take that cover off your sofa and wash it when it needs it. No more worrying about stains anymore!
