Pottery Barn Blue Gate Knock Off

The polls are now closed so I can show you what I've been excitedly waiting since last Thursday to show you! I absolutely LOVE the way this project turned out and apparently, many of you do too. Thanks for all the votes and for helping make it through to the next round on SYTYC!
A while back I fell in love with Pottery Barn’s Blue Gate Wall Art. But with a $230 price tag, I knew it would never see the inside of my house (that is, beyond the computer screen!).
But then SYTYC came along with a knock-offs challenge! Using simple materials available to the average person and following some basic steps, I was able to make a slightly simpler version of the Pottery Barn beauty for less than $15.
I love the way it looks above my dresser, but would also swoon if it was hanging over my mantle. Measuring 23.25” x 33.25” it could make a wonderful statement in any room.

Want to make one yourself? Check out the tutorial HERE!
