My Pottery Barn Knock-Off
Recently I saw a picture in one of the Pottery Barn catalogs that I absolutely loved - 3 bells that looked old, mounted inside black boxes. Being Pottery Barn, they were pricey.
Then one day I ran across four really old bells at an estate sale for $1.00 each! I snapped them up!
My husband built four wood boxes from scrap lumber that was rolling around in the garage, and I painted them black. I also spray painted some basic metal cup hooks (the shiny brass kind) and some silver chain - painted these in a dark brown color so they would look old.
Then I just hung the bells from the cup hooks using the chain. And for $4.00, plus a few cents for the cup hooks and a short length of chain, I have a Pottery Barn look-alike.
