I love Anthropologie. And wouldn’t it be nice to be able to spend $998 on a table cloth? But, really. Then there is the world I live in, and I call it “reality”, and in that world, I don’t spend $1,000 on a textile that I set my children’s food on. 🙂
But their stuff is gorgeous and I want it. I found some really terrific ideas that have the same look and idea as Anthropologie, but with a much smaller price tag.
Anthropologie Spice Jars- At the Picket Fence
I have been obsessed over spice jar ideas and solutions. These are so cute! I also like the idea of making canisters to match, for flour, sugar, etc. You would pay $10-12$ a piece for these bad boys. Ouch.
Anthropologie Confetti Tumblers- Radical Possibility
I am really loving these tumblers! They look so easy to make, and at Anthropologie, you would pay 30$. This is a dollar store special, and it is fabulous.
Anthropologie Tender Falls Shower Curtain- See Kayla Go
This is so beautiful! I have been looking for the perfect shower curtain for my main bathroom and… I just found it! What I like the most about it is (drum roll please…) no sewing machine necessary. It is a little labor intensive, but it looks like the PERFECT thing to do while watching Downton Abbey, am I right? (by the way- AMAZING job, See Kayla Go!)
Anthropologie Metallic Letters- 346 Living
So beautiful. So. Much. Cheaper. The thing I love about these, is that you can hang them so easily because they are made of cardboard, therefore they are super light! Perfect for a 3m sticky to hang them with. This will save you… ahem. A lot.
Anthropologie Painted Spoon- More Design Please
I also love this idea for the ends of wooden spoons, spatulas, etc. I think I want a whole collection of them!
Knock off Shower Curtain- Hometalk
Instead of spending over $100 on the original from Anthropologie, spend $45 on this great knock off.
Anthropologie Painted Bowls- Made from Pinterest
Of course, these are only for decoration, but I love how dainty these designs are. You don’t even need to be artistically inclined!
Chalkboard Globe- Craftivity Designs
This is so cute, I think it would be just as fun making it as it would be to draw on it! You save money too!
Holiday Wreath- Between You and Me Blog
Instead of spending $298 on this wreath, you can make it yourself using yarn!
Anthropologie Lettered Pillows- Pop Sugar
You could buy this for $198, OR you could DIY it using this great tutorial.
