Buy It, Spy It, or DIY It – Pottery Barn Edition

Buy It Spy It DIY It Pottery Barn Edition

I’m not a frequent Pottery Barn browser, I have to admit.  I was a bit surprised at the prices, so I didn’t have many “Buy Its” this week, but I did find some inspiration for DIY’s.  And let’s face it, DIY’s are more fun anyway!

Penelope Organic Duvet Cover & Sham - Twilight Blue | Pottery Barn


Buy It – I adore this duvet set.  I think it would be super cute in a tween’s room, but I would use it in my bedroom. I love the pop of navy.  The king duvet is $129 and it doesn’t include the shams, but I’m ok with that.  I think white pillow cases and a mix of solid and patterned shams would look great and pull out some of the other colors, like that warm yellow color.

Colorful Painterly Ikats White Framed Prints | Pottery Barn

DIY It – These are painted ikat patterns and the colors are gorgeous. I think for some with some painting skills this is a definite DIY, but this could also be achieved with fabric scraps or even good wrapping paper.  The price is completely out of reach for me at a staggering $755 for the set of six.

Beachcomber Extra-Large Round Basket | Pottery Barn

Spy It – I love a woven basket, but I just wrote about one that is not very different than this one at Ikea for $7.99.  This one is $103 and that’s a sale price.  I don’t think the one at Ikea is as big and the quality may not be the same, but you could spend a quarter of that price at Home Goods for something similar.

Geo Wire Wall Art | Pottery Barn


DIY It – I love this so much that if you told me I was forbidden to DIY it, I would consider shelling out the $254 it is on sale for right now.  But, come on, this is string art (well, technically wire art) on recycled wood!  I’ve tried it and you will come up with scores of DIY tutorials on Pinterest for this.  You can do this people!   And, as an aside, if you make this, don’t muck it up with notes jammed into it!

Bird Clock | Pottery Barn


Buy It – I mustn’t be the only crazy person in the world with a bird fetish when it comes to home decor because I seem to find little birdies everywhere.  I think this little clock is so cute.  It’s $39.  It’s form and function, so I say it’s worth that price.

Decoupage Typography Tray | Pottery Barn

DIY It – This is decoupaged!  Woo hoo!  Grab the Mod Podge and get to work.  It’s actually only $29.50, so it wouldn’t be a bad buy either.

Driftwood Garland Vase Filler | Pottery Barn


Buy It – This drift wood garland is on sale for $12.99.  It’s marketed as a vase filler, but I can imagine this draped on a summer mantel, or, how cute would it be on a beach themed Christmas tree?  I think this is a pretty versatile piece to have in your decorating tool box.  One strand is 42″ long, so I would pick up a few at the sale price.

Stephanie Sterjovski Framed Print: Oh, You | Pottery Barn


DIY It – I love this cheeky print!  The color is so pretty and the “Oh, you” makes me smile.  You will never guess how much this costs though.  $84!  WHAT??? Printable, people, printable.
