Knock Off Wall Decor

DIY-wall-art-bedroom-decorating-ideas, knock off wall decor Pottery barnHappy Friday! I have a really simple project that I think makes a big impact to share with you today. I made some knock off wall decor that was inspired by expensive wall art I saw at Pottery Barn.

While browsing the Pottery Barn catalog I came across this beautiful this Textile Art*.

The cost for one of these at Pottery Barn is $169 (or two for $334)! That is crazy expensive to me for wall art, so I came up with a way to DIY these myself and you won’t believe how easy it is to make these for a tiny fraction of the PB price!

First I ordered fabric samples online from Calico Corners. You will need the larger size samples which are 27″ X 18″. Regular samples are only 5.5″ squared, much too small to frame. I always order the larger samples because the small ones are not large enough to get a good sense of what the fabric will look like. Here you can see the difference in the two sizes.

I found these wood frames on sale at Michael’s. Between the sale they were having and my coupon, I scored them for $10 each. They normally sell for $29.99 each! These are a little smaller than the Pottery Barn frames, but I was happy with this size.

These frames don’t come with mats, so I ordered those online. I ordered several different fabric samples from Calico, but the two I ended up using are called Begonia Midnight (that’s the floral pattern) and Briza by Nate Berkus fabric in Lagoon (yay Nate!). The larger samples cost between $7-$11 dollars each. It’s much less expensive than ordering an entire yard of fabric.

I ironed the fabric and put it together with the mats into the frames.

It’s that simple! What’s great about this is that when I get tired of these fabrics, they are easily switched out! I have already have a selection to choose from.

For my three Pottery Barn Inspired Wall art prints , I spent a total of $75.00, which is $428 less than if I bought them from Pottery Barn!

  1. Very smart idea! They look great.

  2. Very cool idea – IN PICKING OUT FABRIC SWATCHES ON THE CALICO SITE I DO NOT SEE AN OPTION TO PICK A LARGER SWATCH SIZE. I REALIZE THIS BLOG IS FEW YEARS OLD SO MAYBE IT ISN’T AN OPTION ANYMORE? diD YOU HAVE TO CALL DIRECT TO GET THE LARGER SIZE AS THE ONLY SWATCHES ONLINE ARE SMALLER ONES.

    1. Julie, I don’t think they carry those larger samples anymore.
