West Elm Rolling Storage

Silly West Elm, don't you know that we are bargain hunters?

We can spot a brand name trying to gussy up an IKEA classic any day!

Because these:

Looky  what I found over at Birch Lane

  RDecor Look Alikes | Birch Lane Chatham Lamp

And here's a little secret - Birch Lane is one of the brands under the Wayfair company and you just might be able to find the same Birch Lane products on Wayfair for even less.

 Case in point:

DIY LALs : Williams-Sonoma Mason Glass Top Desk

Decor Look Alikes | Willams-Sonoma Mason Glass Top Desk  

Retails for $1395 - $1595

Here's a great LAL from IKEA

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!
