I love Pottery Barn but I try so hard to stay away from the store and I definitely try my hardest to stay away from the catalog. I could really do some damage at that store if I had the money, but since I don't, all I do is covet, so I choose to stay away from both...but I slipped. I clicked on that little box that said, please send me a catalog and not even a week later it came in all it's glory and landed in my living room where I have poured over it page by page. This time though, I found inspiration to do something on my own.
I love these banker boxes. I think they are so classic, and when I get around to finding some nice black boxes like these, I want to replicate it but in the meantime, I used what I had.
And what I had were these stickers from Joann's and a jar from Ikea that we store our q-tips in on our bathroom counter top. I am probably the last crafty person alive who doesn't have a cricut or even know how to make vinyl letters/numbers (seriously I don't...someone point me in the direction of a good tutorial!) so when I came up on these letters, I thought they were similar to the font on the original. If you notice I used an I for the number 1. Is it obvious?
I like it. I think it made this little jar that's plain and classic and given it a little umph. It's not boring anymore that's for sure! Now to head to Ikea and pick up more jars...after the holiday rush!
