I absolutely LOVE finding knock-off deals. Take for instance this antique dresser I got at a garage sale for $30…

Sorry for the bad picture quality. Anyway, this was exactly what I’d been looking for; however, it was painted a hideous purple when I bought it. Thanks to my WONDERFUL dad who stripped all five coats of paint off, it turned out to be a beauty. Now here’s the kicker…doesn’t it look an awful lot like this one from Pottery Barn?

I know it’s not exactly the same, but I’ll take the $30 one versus the $1,000 Pottery Barn one…that’s a savings of $970!!! Can you tell I’m a little excited about this one?! 🙂
