This page in my Pottery Barn catalog was earmarked. I loved the spring feel. I preferred yellow to pink but “What a pretty Easter vignette”, I thought. Then I added up the cost of things I wanted. “$200!” Yikes. Keep dreaming.
Dreaming can be reality. If it’s too big for your budget, DIY! The result will be more personal and more rewarding (and cheap)!
A trip to Michaels for faux Forsythia, paper mache eggs and ribbon and using things I already had including Deco Art‘s Americana Gloss Enamels, Acrylic and Dazzing Metallics craft paints, pitcher, Sharpie, pins and existing ceramic Easter bunnies
…here is my version for under $20.
I’ll probably still re-arrange things for the next month but I love my version.
Pouting because she couldn’t be on the dining room table to help, Lalka sat nearby contemplating her Cadbury Bunny audition. 🙂
Here is how it looks from the kitchen…
The mantel in the dining room gets a spring-makeover too.
I found the yellow/brown ice bucket (exact Forsythia colors) and marble eggs at Good Will.
I just added some other coordinating things from around the house. And the sweet clay tag from my friend Jami at Freckled Laundry is so cute.
What do you think? Not typical Easter-y but I think it works with the yellow/white theme.
You can see my full detailed DIY PB inspired Easter Eggs tutorial today at
Linking to these fun parties! Check out all of the creativity!
Look how great that looks…all painted white. That's a pretty good knock off. What a sweet pretty easter bunny Lalka is!
You are awesome..looks just like the PB! Your cat seriously could be the cadbury cat, so funny! Great job-very inspiring!
Love how you pulled this off! I saw the same display at a PB showroom in San Franscisco and was wondering how I could recreate the look at home on a slightly smaller scale. Love this.
That looks really good! I scan goodwill for ceramic easter bunnies all the time! Will have to try this entire project soon!
Perfection! Both the creativity behind it and the price! I saw that vignette at PB the other week when I was there and fell in love. However, the prices made me walk away. I may have to borrow an idea or two! Thanks for sharing, Becca
I love it Roeshel!! I know I have some faux forsythia… I may need to go dig it out!:)I love all the white. I'm going to check out your egg tutorial!
Love it! Love it! Love it!
Wow! That's Just WOW!
Looks gorgeous !
Nicely done. I think PB has some of the best styling in their stores. I love to borrow ideas from visits to the showroom.
i love it! totally thought of using the 40% off ones from michaels.. but your version could use those .50 finds from everywhere!!
That looks really good!! Like it!! 🙂
Love your knockoff version! So pretty!
GREAT and beautiful job!!!
LOOOOVE IT! i had that page marked as well. At the beginning of next week I should have a pair of knock-off PB curtains hanging up, so feel free to stop on by and check them out!
That's beautiful! I was eying the same page in my PB catalog- I love the eggs especially.
Your version turned out gorgeous! I like it better than the PB version!
That is so gorgeous! What a beautiful knock-off. You totally pulled the whole thing off.
LOVE the subtitles in your bunny photo – so witty! 🙂 Your vignette is wonderful!
Just ran up on your bunnies.. had me as a new follower with those.. love them
It looks great, I love the bright yellow, it's so cheerful. You did a good job with the Happy Easter eggs. I saw them at the PB store and tweeted a photo…
Looks beautiful! And I love the Happy Easter eggs! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
I just have to say how much I love it again. It's so Eastery with out being super sicky sweet which Easter can be. Not that there is anything wrong with that because I do love me some Easter stuff.
Hi Roeshel! Oh, you're good! I love what you've done and I like your version better! Now you've given me an idea about painting bunnies white! I have some and they would be so cute! See how wonderful you are?
Be a sweetie,
That page is one of my favorite in the catalog! Love your display!
I am in love! Gorgeous work 🙂
Roeshel, you are so creative! That is such a cute Easter display! I love it.
i love the yellow!!
Roeshel – this is hands down, gorgeous! I love all the white objects. So fresh and crisp for the season.
Wow, this is really cute! I love the yellow flowering branches.
Beautiful job! You are just so clever. I saw some bunnies like yours at SA the other day for a dollar. I might have to go back and get them now. Thanks for the inspiration! Love love love your dining room light BTW! Gorgeous!
I love your version. It's beautiful!!! =)
Roeshel your Easter decorations are so darn cute!!! You did such a great job creating the look you wanted and so much better than paying the overpriced $200!
looks gorgeous! love the white, and money savings!! i'm having a party today, i would love it if you shared this.
Looks so pretty! Really inspirational! I'm a new follower!
Wow, great job! Love it!
Wow! That looks great! 🙂
I had the same page earmarked but my attempt didn't go so well! I blogged about yours instead. 🙂
Love your PB Eggs. Here's my post with my version of the same eggs.
Alos also shared your post on my blog.
So beautiful! I love what a little white paint can do. I featured this yesterday at somedaycrafts.blogspot.com
I love it! I may also be a little bias as a bunny and bird fanatic! I can't wait to get some spring colors and projects done around here over break!
I want your centerpiece on my table!!! I adore anything pottery barn and you did a fab knock-off. I'm putting it in the Spotlight at the PoPP. Thanks for linking up.
I actually like your version better. And the price…makes me like it even more! 🙂 Very pretty!
Ooh that looks great! I think I like yours better than the inspiration picture.
Katrina was also in love with the Pottery Barn display. You did a great job with your centerpiece, it looks so much like the inspiration, you've now inspired her to bring on the spring!
LOVE IT !!!
WOW!! This looks better than PB's version!!!! I love your pitcher with the sticks coming out way better!! Amazing job!
Wow Roeshel, that is so stunning! I love love love the yellow and the sentiment spelled out on your eggs! Thanks for linking up to the party!
