I love Pottery Barn’s catalog. It takes me longer to flip through a PB catalog than the latest issue of People. I find pages of inspiration and plenty of accessories and pieces I want to purchase. It’s a win-win for both parties. Last spring I saw this image in the catalog. I loved the layout of the room, but what caught my eye was the monogram board in the background on page 75. And, I have had that page on my desk since last spring… or was it winter?
I really want the couch, but until I train our Bernese Mountain dog from jumping on the furniture, I’ve got my eye on accessories. The monogram board behind the couch caught my attention and was a budget friendly purchase. I shared my favorite thrifty idea for diy templates of monograms and images HERE. For this image I used an outdated piece of artwork, primed it and created a lower case “n” for the board. This is the original printed image I picked up at the printer. The image didn’t have to be high quality because I was cutting it out and using it as the template.
I traced it onto the primed board and filled it in with latex paint. It took me 10 minutes in the kitchen before work. It was so easy!
I had a space for it in my newly updated dining room. The update was courteous of a search for a Spiralizer and ended with a shopping cart of dining room chairs. I tucked the Pottery Barn knockoff monogram board onto my recently relocated hutch.
