I fell in love with it, then added the cost of the individual items.
Which is roughly $170 USD
Yes, U.S. Dollars.
I don't think I paid $170. for my sofa. Well maybe, but just sayin'.
That's a whole lotta dollars which I was not willing to pass from my hand to Pottery Barn's hand.
I decided to rethink Pottery Barn's version and make my own display, using some of what I had along with a few things I bought using sales, coupons, and Penny's Cricut.
The bunny and tulip vase were some of my treasured yard sale finds from last Spring. Three dollars ($3) for the pair.
The pitcher is one I've had for several years, regularly changing what's in it to agree with the season. ($0)
Michael's provided the blossoms at 50% off regular price. ($12 for 4 stems)
Don't you just love a sale?
Almost as good as a yard sale.
And speaking of yard sales, when is the weather going to clear enough in central Virginia to allow us to hit up the big neighborhoods for their all-day drive-through shop-til-ya-drop sales?!?!
JoAnn's had the eggs in a carton of various colors, again on a 50% sale. Eggs: $8.
And my niece Penny had the Cricut (there's rumors around my house that I may be getting one for my b-d in two weeks - stay posted!).
I liked the Happy Easter letters used by Pottery Barn, but there's another Easter saying I really love, so I typed it into the Cricut and out came this:
H E I S R I S E N
Already had the vinyl. $0.
Total cost : $23.
Yes, that's right, $23 USD.
Pottery Barn lost a sale and I saved $147.
Oh my, I do love a bargain.
And a beautiful Easter decoration.
My table is so lovely.
Mr. Bunny is happy.
And so am I.
What's the most you've saved on a house/decor project? I'd love to hear about it!
