An Attempt at a "Pottery Barn" Photo Shoot

Lately, I've been working on a few Pottery Barn knock off projects. In celebration of Independence day I thought I'd set up a little vignette- my own mini photo shoot- to showcase my latest projects and garage sale finds. It may take a few posts to show you all the details, but we'll start with the overall look. Here's my "Pottery Barn Like" corner...

I know, it's not really catalog worthy, but wait until I tell you the prices- I much rather have "Pottery Barn Like" then pay the real Pottery Barn price. It started with my $25 patio set I picked up last year- Yes, it's been almost a year. The original color was a light green...With a bit of rust...The set included the table, 4 chairs and a tea cart. Here's the chairs ready for their make-overI used my paint sprayer with Behr exterior Polar Bear White in a satin finish. The set is super comfortable and just needs a few cushions (I borrowed pillows from my sofa for the shoot)
Stay tuned for a close-up and tutorial on the flag. Let me know what you think. Love, Kelly.


  1. This is so great! I am looking for a cheap backyard make over. We need a table & some chairs. Yours look great all painted & I can't believe it was all 25 bucks. Thats what we need!

  2. Its just amazing what a coat of paint can do sometimes. Looks catalog-worthy to me!

  3. Wow, great job! LOVE the big flag on the white fence!

  4. Looks great, Kelli. Gosh, give a girl a paint sprayer and she'll amaze you! I should have asked for one for Mother's Day.
