Pottery Barn has gorgeous stuff for the home, but if we’re being honest, sometimes the items are out of our budget… like, way out of our budget. So what’s a girl who’s strapped for cash going to do? Make one of these Pottery Barn hacks, of course. They look just as beautiful as the name brand furnishings, but if you’re not afraid of a little DIY, you can make them for a fraction of the price.
