Thanks for all of your sweet comments regarding yesterday’s news! Day one on the new job went well! 🙂 Today I have a fun Pottery Barn Knock Off to share! With fall on the brain, this rustic warm vase is a fun addition to my dining room, and it was super easy, and free since I used things from around the house.
It’s safe to say that I haven’t read a real book in at least three years. Don’t get me wrong, I have piles of them in my nightstand and a mental list a mile long of books I must get to… someday.
These days my big treat is flipping through the Pottery Barn catalog each season. Every time it arrives in the mailbox, my heart gets a little flutter.
Sometimes it’s just a way they have something styled that catches my eye. Sometimes it’s using something in a new and unique way.
This year with fall on my brain, I paused when I saw their Tuscan Cachepots and Urns.
These are hand-thrown and hand-glazed terracotta ceramics, that according to Pottery Barn, are supposed to “evoke the feeling of the Italian countryside.”
Yes, yes. They do evoke that feeling.
However, with prices ranging from $24 to $99, I’d rather spend my $$ on some Italian wine to get that feeling.
Ya with me?
So, I decided to see what I could with items I had on hand. (It is “No Spend-tember” after all.) It didn’t take long to come up with this beauty, almost as if it had been waiting for this exact makeover.
How to Make Your Own Pottery Barn Knock Off Tuscan Urn
I gave this a quick coat of spray paint using my go-to Rustoleum Heirloom White. For the textured look, I used Rustoleum American Accent Bleach Stone Spray Paint. Let me just tell you, this stuff is COOL. It really just spits out texture and after a couple coats it’s like stone.
After a couple coats of this magic paint, I used some gold paint to add the rustic contrast. To get the chipped paint look, I tore painters tape to form my line.
I sure do love projects that do not require perfection. In fact, the more crooked the line, the better! This Pottery Barn Knock Off Tuscan Urn is the perfect example of that!
