PB Style on a PBR budget

I, like a lot of people, fell in love with this...

But unfortunately the Jetplanes are not made out of money and I adamantly refuse to spend a lot of money on seasonal decor. Therefore I only buy these items on sale or even better at the end of the season.

I honestly don't even want to go into thinking about how much that look would cost....its ridiculous, but it is awesome... Don't worry if you can afford it...I'm not hating the player...just the game.

So what did lil Mrs. Jetplane do? Well so glad you asked...

First of all I don't have that much space to work with. So I needed to condense the look. The pumpkins are fake ones that I bought from Michael's last year for seriously 80% off. I thought about painting the them creme last year, even bought the paint but got lazy and didn't do it.



The wicker pumpkins are from Michael's regularly $24.99 and I purchase them on sale for $19.99/pc. I purchased the crows, leaves, and straw from Michael's, as well, all for 50% off. Crows were $2.49/pc, leaves $2.99, and straw $5.99.

The lanterns were purchased from Walmart in the Lawn and Garden department. They were regularly $25.00/pc and I bought them for $10.00/pc. I placed some of the leaves in them and then used a battery operated votive in each lantern.

The black metal plant stand, I have had forever. I believe I bought it at Lowes in Lawn and Garden. I have used it in everyone of my past apartments and houses on the balcony or porch as a table. I bought it for around $10 its metal and has held up for 7 years now.

The wreath was purchased at Big Lots last fall for under $10.00.

Yesterday I told Mr. Jetplane that I was going to give our house the PB look for around 10% of the cost. He said, "Great Honey!! What's PB?"

Oh boy...you would think he would have learned by know. He likes the look except he thinks the crows are creepy. I think that's why I like them. They had owls too, but they were alittle more expensive, and I'm a tight ass, so they didn't get purchased. Maybe if they go on 75-80% off, I'll pick up an owl or two and some of the larger crows.

So there you go, Casa de Jetplane Fall outdoor decor. I have more home improvement posts coming this week and potentially a giveaway... stay tuned.

I love the look. I have a few of the wicker pumpkins and love them. I keep them up for thanksgiving too because they are "harvest" style too.

I love it!

We don't really do holiday decor since we live in an apartment, but I love Michael's for the few things we do get every year. I'm pretty sure I've mastered the use of the 50% off coupon.

Wow it looks really great! I am planning on buying a bunch of stuff after the season is over while it is all on sale. I should have done this last year after Christmas, but I didn't.

It looks fantastic. And it looks even better knowing you spent far less than the Pottery Barn inspiration!

I think I might be the only milspouse who doesn't decorate for the holidays. I go nuts at Christmas, but as far as the others (Fourth of July, Halloween, etc.) go – I just don't have a lot of decor. I'm really missing Hobby Lobby for this! Their sales can't be beat!

bI love your look! PB's is a little too busy for me. I'd like some of their stuff in smaller quantities.

You did a great job, I love it! I want so badly to start doing more holiday decor but for now I am sticking to Christmas only... We have so much more to do on the interior that I'm scared to start bringing in more things!
