Copying Pottery Barn...Again..

So they say imitation is the
sincerest form of flattery
Right????

I REALLY wanted
this piece of art from
Pottery Barn Kids
for our daughter's room
But as much as I wanted it
I just couldn't fork over
$249....not to
mention Sweet Husband
would have never gone
for that


Here is their version



And here is mine....


I'm so excited....I can't believe
that it turned out so well



While I really liked the pastel blues
 in Pottery Barns version...
I already had darker blues..
so I went with them



And my birds are a bit plumper...
but after the holidays aren't we all...
(Ha Ha)

It adds just the perfect amount
of color to her room!

Love yours - it's more vibrant and the price is right!

The pastels might appeal to an adult but the vibrant colors you have applied are more joyful and appealing to a child. Great Job!! Mitzi
