1. Wooden Pottery Barn clock
This wooden clock displays the time in Roman numerals for a classy touch. But if you buy the real deal from Pottery Barn, you'll be shelling out a cool $300 for the sophistication. Down Oxford Street put together a great tutorial that shows you how you can replicate the look for just about $10!
2. Pottery Barn inspired outdoor buffet
This outdoor buffet would come in so handy for summer entertaining, but it comes with a whopping $1600 price tag! Ouch! Lucky for us, Sincerely Marie Designs has put together a super comprehensive DIY tutorial, complete with all the dimensions to make your own for a far less scary chunk of cash!
3. DIY wooden dining table
What if we told you we can save you $915 on your very own gorgeous wooden table? Sounds pretty good, huh? Well, we're not kidding! The thing is that instead of swiping your credit card at Pottery Barn, you'll need to head to your local lumber store and follow the tutorial over at Shanty 2 Chic. Expect to pay just $85 for this entire project!
4. Faux succulent wreath
We love wreaths that can be hung all year long! This eye-catching faux succulent wreath was inspired by one from Pottery Barn, but with the help of The Happy Housie, you'll only pay half of what you would in the store.
5. Knock-off Pottery Barn Eagan mirror
This gorgeous mirror suits any style and makes a great addition to the entryway in any home. If you pick it up at the store it'll set you back a hefty $700, but with the tutorial from It's a Grandville Life, you'll only pay $70!
6. Pottery Barn inspired towel ladder
Please don't pay $179 for Pottery Barn's towel rack when the DIY project from Hey There Home will only cost you $5!
7. Birch bark candles
These sweet candles make a perfect addition to your holiday decor arsenal, no matter what your style may be. The faux birch bark brings a little outdoorsy touch to shabby chic homes as well as homes with a classic theme. At Pottery Barn, these babies will cost you a pretty penny. But with the help of Living Rich on Less, you can make your own! And the best part is that making 5 will only cost you about $15!
8. Pottery Barn rope knot lamp
This nautical themed lamp from Pottery Barn is stunning - there's no question about it. But we like the idea of making it on your own for $25 instead of $245. Like this project? Down Home Inspiration has you covered with all the instructions!
9. 3-Tiered stand
This tiered stand is equal parts useful and beautiful. Kirsten from the The Crafting Chicks claims that even if she had all the money in the world, she wouldn't pay the $69 price at Pottery Barn. But with crafting skills and a tutorial like hers, who can blame her?! We're fans of this DIY version and the $6 price tag!
10. Rustic lanterns
Replicate these Pottery Barn beauties for a fraction of the cost with the help of 100 Things 2 Do. They can be dressed up for any occasion or holiday!
