Wall Art Pottery Barn Knock Off

Today we have Roxanne taking over the Rockstar DIY stage! Roxanne is the knock off queen. She will be showing us how to create these beautiful knock off Pottery Barn Blue Textile prints for much less. If Roxanne sees something from a high end store, she has the super power to create a knock off for 1/10th the price or less! She recently knocked off a $695 Restoration Hardware capiz chandelier for only $52!

You can do the math, but I know that’s a real steal.

I was recently browsing my favorite website, Pottery Barn, and noticed this set of beautiful Framed Blue Textile Art. I loved the wooden frames and the blue fabrics, but not the price! They sell for $169 for one, or $334 for the pair! I realized this would be very easy to knock-off for a fraction of that price.

To re-create this look, I ordered fabric samples from Calico Corners. To make this work, you will need the larger sized samples. Average size samples are usually around 5.5″ squared. The larger versions at Calico are 27″ X 18″. I always prefer to order the larger size because its hard to get a good sense of how it will look in the room from the small size. Here is a picture of the small sample versus the large.

Fabric Sizes

I found two beautiful wood frames at Michael’s, which are normally priced $29.99, I scored them on sale for $10 each, it was a steal! I bought them in size 16″ X 20″, which is a little smaller than the Pottery Barn frames.

16 X 20 Frames

These frames didn’t come with mats so I had to purchase those separately. I ordered them online from Amazon, and I got 2 for under $10. 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 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.

Fabric Samples

Once I had all my pieces, I ironed the fabric and then assembled them in the frames.

PB Inspired Art

The best part is, if I ever get tired of either of these fabrics or color choices, it’s inexpensive to just switch them out for something else. I already have a few more samples that I picked up for another project.

Large Fabric Samples

For my two Pottery Barn Inspired Wall art prints , I spent a total of 43.75! which is $290.25 less than if I bought them from Pottery Barn!

    Fabulous job Roxanne! It almost seems ridiculous what they charge for those. Yours looks just as beautiful and love how you can change up the fabric.

    Love this idea and it turned out GREAT!! Hint: go to Joann’s or any fabric shop and look in the quilting fabric section for “fat quarters” which are 18 inches x 20 inches and typically around $2.00 each piece. Usually in color coordinated lots if you want to go nuts and buy a bundle. 🙂 Not that I have ever done that or anything. Gotta get over to Michael’s for supplies! 🙂 Thanks!!

    I like your fabric choice more than Overstocks. I have always heard of wallpaper in frames, but never fabric. The fabric must add some extra texture. Thank you for sharing!

    Hi! Love this idea and want to try it out. I went to calico corners site and don’t see where to order the size you mentioned. It looks like the only options are 5″ by 5″ or a yard. Please let me know how to order less than a yard. Thank you!!

    Thanks for reminding me of this idea. I too fell in love with those prints. I had thought of doing what you did but since it’s going to take several weeks / months for me to do my bedroom refresh, I had forgotten about the idea of using fabric, so this reminder helps. BTW, Target has almost these exact same prints for $75.99. https://www.target.com/p/2pk-shibori-wall-art-threshold-153/-/A-50917997#lnk=sametab. Not quite a cheap as the DIY way but still considerable cheaper that PB.
