What the...Pottery Barn???

I know I already posted this morning. This is unheard of. Two posts in one day. But this will be short.

So I was tooling around Pottery Barn yesterday. Not to buy anything, mind you, because I'm cheap like that (as you all know by now), but to get ideas. Usually PB has great stuff to copy, even in their displays that have stuff they don't actually sell at the store.

But these pillows really got me worked up. Seriously.

I touched them. They are BURLAP and UPHOLSTERY WEBBING. Why would you pay $29 for something that you could whip up in 10 minutes for less than $2?? Ok, I will admit that there was a zipper, which I haven't figured out how to do yet, but really. I mean, REALLY? (SNL Weekend Update reference!)

Erin, if you make one of these, I would love for you to link it to my PB, Ballard, Restoration Hardware Knock-off party. Next party is Nov. 18

I know, right?!?! I've never understood paying for expensive pillow.
I bought a couple dinner napkins, a "lacy" doily (thrift store) and a tassle (joanns or hancock fabircs) for less than $2 and made my own cover for a pillow. Way cuter than anything I've ever gotten premade!!
