Pottery Barn, Schmottery Barn

I have several amazing friends in my life. One in particular (J.K.) was inspired by these images from Pottery Barn. The diner sign and American flag.



Instead of paying the $129 for EACH one, she created her own versions.
Diner:


American Flag
Please pardon my horrible photography skills. The pictures don't do them justice. They look even more amazing in person.
Her cost: $0. That's right zero.
I'm working on a post from our painting session where she helped me create some wall art for my boys' empty walls. So stay tuned.

I agree. The homemeade signs look better than the inspiration. I love old signs.

I love them! My sister-n-law and I make signs and sell them. We are always looking for great ideas. Never thought of doing foody signs before. She did a great job.

Great job on the signs! Isn't it great when you can make something better then the original (especially when the original is soo expensive) Thank you for the inspiration to make things. Then I can enjoy the process and save my money!
