Decor Look Alikes | Ikea Glasholm/Finnvard Desk

 

Ikea Glasholm / Finnvard Desk

Retails for $149

It needs just a little help to look more like the original.

Presenting the $5 solution for turning a $149 desk into a look alike for a $1595 desk:

Decor Look Alikes | Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray Paint

You can find this everywhere.  Lowe's, Home Depot, Walmart etc.  You can also order it on Amazon but it's a lot cheaper in the store. Spray paint those tresle legs and it will look like a million bucks.... well, like 1595 bucks at least!

That's all you need!  This is my kind of DIY project.  Someone try it and send us the pics!

Pottery Barn Nautical Lamps

 Summer decor catalogs are filling my mailbox and the covers seem to have a running nautical theme.  Blues and whites, ropes and seeded glass.  Jute, linen, seagrass.  You get the idea.  In fact, I've found so many nautical look alikes that I decided to do a whole week of posts.  To start things off, I've found a trio of  ahoy-worthy lamps from Pottery Barn.
