Hey everyone – it’s finally Friday! Any fun plans for the weekend? I’ll be working a wedding tonight with Barrie Anne Photography, a wedding tomorrow with Days Photography and then working at the library on Sunday. I’m going to be tired, y’all!
Today I’m bringing you a Get the Look for Less post – I haven’t done one of those in a while! Originally I had found an awesome Anthropologie living room photo from one of their lookbooks, but apparently I didn’t save the room photo and now I can’t find it? I did manage to remember to save each of the pieces featured in the room, all of which are awesome, but expensive. Usually I like to find the same pieces for less at other stores such as Target, West Elm, Pier 1, etc. but today I thought I would make the “for less” pieces be DIY tutorials whenever possible. A lot of bloggers are doing Anthropologie hacks (including me – with my watercolor art and sharpie art!) and you get so much fulfillment and a feeling of accomplishment when you make something yourself!Urban Outfitters for only $749.00. Sugar & Charm for making and styling your own bar cart for a fraction of the price! Martha Stewart gives a great tutorial on how to sand down and paint wood stumps that you can either find outdoors or get from someone off Craigslist. Now that’s better 🙂 Ikea for only $14.00 a panel! View from the Fridge made these awesome knock offs that copy the Anthropologie version for a fraction of the price!
This rhino head is totally adorable and is fun for some quirky and unique decor. However, making something out of paper mache, as Lil Blue Boo did, costs wayyyy less and is something you can be proud to hang on your wall!The Inspired Room’s tutorial! Something Turquoise did to get the desired effect. A dollar store vase, some tape, and some paint, and you can have your very own sweet piece that doesn’t cost $28.00.
Which DIY tutorial above seems most doable? Is there an item from Anthropologie that you would love to see as a knock off?
