My Pottery Barn "knockoffs"

Remember these?



I loved them, but they were way out of my budget, as they ranged anywhere from $29-$49 per candlestick.

Umm...OUCH!



So, I decided to try and make something similar.

Here is my version and it only cost me a total of $20 for the whole kit and caboodle.



Not too shabby, eh?

This was super easy, I just found some reasonably priced candlesticks, (I used faux wood ones) found some spray paint in colors that I liked and then just spray painted until my hearts content. Easy Peasy!

I am really pleased with the results and really pleased with the price.



So, here is my contribution to frugal decorating. I love when I get them PB look without the PB price! :)
