As bloggers, we all seem to have some sort of relationship with Pottery Barn. Whether it’s as an avid customer, a once-in-a-while-I’ll-buy-something-if-it’s-on-sale customer or perhaps just as a window shopper. No matter what your design style, it’s a pretty sure bet that once you walk in a store you will find something you like. I have to admit that I don’t really shop there. I love to look, I adore their catalogs, but I usually just don’t want to pay their prices. Recently though, I went on a bit of a shopping spree. I had received a gift card for my birthday from my husband and son.
Oh was it fun.
First thing I picked out was this Savannah basket on wheels. I wanted something beside this chair and it’s great for the dog toys.
It adds much-needed texture and takes up some floor space.
I was on a basket binge so the next thing I chose was this Savannah Underbed Basket. As you can see I’m using it under my coffee table instead of under a bed. I totally guessed on the size but it fits perfectly between the legs of the table. Pure luck.
Right now I have my demijohns in it but I’m sure soon that will change. My original idea was to use it for my favorite decorating books and magazines. I would still love to do that.
Moving on through the store I came across this picture frame. I didn’t even hesitate. In my basket it went.
I checked the website and the 4 x 6 is sold out. The 8 X 10 is still available and on sale. Mmmmm…something to think about. When my son saw it he asked if I had covered the frame myself. I was pleasantly surprised that he had picked up on the fact that I was obsessed with grain sacks. I guess he is paying better attention than I thought.
My gift card was quickly running out but I had just enough left to bring home this gorgeous pillow cover. I had to adjust the size a bit to fit my insert but I didn’t lose any of the design. I only buy a pillow cover when it’s something I can’t make. I could not have made this with the lovely embroidery. No way.
There are even tiny beads sewn on the middle of the flower.
Even though she looks a little annoyed, or maybe just bored, Kelly gave the pillow cover her stamp of approval by snuggling right up beside it.
So…that was my big adventure. I walked out with $1.27 left on the gift card. Not surprisingly, it was the most fun I’ve ever had in a Pottery Barn.
What’s your opinion of Pottery Barn? Love it, like it, hate it?
