We Can Do It Cheaper - My 5 Top Picks - Now YOU Pick The Winner!

Last week I hosted a new Monthly We Can Do It Cheaper Party. I was really, really hoping to have not only more links, but more relevant links. In the end though, we did have some great catalog/Internet inspired projects linked up.

Here is my top 5 in no particular order!
No. 1
From Simply Delicious, an Anthropoligie inspired Knotted Bedding.

No. 2
From Fern Creek Cottage comes this amazing metal basket that she saw in Pottery Barn and was motivated to try her own version.

No. 3
Stillwater Story did a great job with making her own file storage. Inspired from Ballard Designs.

No. 4
Sugar & Spice in the land of Balls & Sticks
 
linked up with a great pillow inspiration from Pier One.

No. 5
From Antiquechase there came some amazing vintage photo's, inspired by Restoration Hardware.

It's your turn now. Leave a comment with your favorite project! I will announce the winner next Thursday! (or you can count them for yourself;-)The winner will receive a $10 Gift Card to Target.

Thanks to the rest of you that linked up with "inspired by.." projects!

I have to vote for No. 1!! Not just because it is GORGEOUS, but because it's such a CHEAP version of the real thing!! I can't even imagine what you'd pay for it!

Thank you for featuring my metal basket! I appreciate it. :)

I'm picking number 2. I remember Lisa's post on creating this basket and I know she worked very hard to achieve the patina and look.

All of the projects are wonderful.

Love the anthro inspired bedding! What a cool bedspread and it looks like it was complicated to do! I certainly wouldn't want to take it on.

I like number 2 because I think I would use it myself.
