I loved this linen memory board from Pottery Barn, and though it was on sale (from $54 to $42), I knew that I could recreate it on a budget. It would be perfect for the little wall in my kitchen.
So, I did recreate it, and it did fit that wall perfectly.
I spent exactly $42 on my "thrifty" knockoff.
Frame - $20 (half off, was $40)
Elastic - $12 (should have waited until it was on sale)
Fabric #1 - $3 (linen look-alike)
Discovered that I hated fabric #1.
Fabric #2 - $7 (linen)
Coming to the conclusion that I could have saved time and bought it ready-made?
