Copy That: Ballard Designs Round Side Table with Burlap Tablecolth



For a while now I've been making a wish list of home decor items that I want to eventually buy or make.  One is from Ballard Designs.   

Theirs: $65.00
Mine: $4.99 Goodwill


Burlap Trio
Table, glass top and tablecloth
$139.00

Sorry about the blur, I had a really hard time capturing this vignette!
Here's how mine breaks down:
(All from Goodwill unless otherwise noted)
Table $4.99 
Crocheted topper $1.49 
Lamp (base only) $2.99 
White stoneware pitcher: $2.99
clock: Pottery Barn (free with gift certificate)
flowers: $2.50 Hobby Lobby sale
lamp shade: $8.99 Wal-Mart
Burlap "tablecloth" less than $5.00 Wal-Mart fabric dept.


So yes, I'm pretty proud of myself cause I can cross T.H.A.T. off my wish list.
I've had so many crafty decor ideas lately but I'm also trying to get my Etsy shop back up and running....seems as soon as I add items to the shop someone buys them!  I know there are worse problems but it has been a bit stressful.  I'm going to try to add more items tonight and then share another "Copy That" with you tomorrow or Saturday.  
Any ideas?

 Bet you won't guess in a million years!  But I think you'll like it!
I love it!  
Until then,
xoxo

Kathleen another great copycat! I'm all crazy for burlap! I also have those same shades from Wallmart *winks* They were quite a steal.
Hmmm ya know Kathleen I'm sure I have some DIY in me somewhere (If my project board on pinterest is any indication lol!) I need to become a DIY apprentice...Could I work with you? *winks* I really love all your projects! How did you learn to be so intrepid? *winks*
Changing topic...I guess the stands that we have are called tea cake stands or servers? That's what my english friend called hers anyway. They're not that easy to find...Give it a try. Almost all of them I saw were sold, so good to have if you want to sell them on etsy? *hinty hint* Vanna

You did a great job and pretty! I like your price much better. Can't believe BD wants $65 for one of those tables.
Enjoy your weekend.

I love posts like this! You did an excellent job of showing what can be created without spending a fortune. Love your vignette.

Anita @ Cedar Hill Ranch said...

I love it!! Do you ever sleep? You have so many wonderful ideas and some great sources.

Marlee said...

Good job! I tried to create a similar look recently and mine is not near as cute as yours.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Wow you got the look for a whole lot less. Cute vignette and love your chaise. Thanks for sharing at Wow.

Oh I just love the touch of burlap! Well done!

I love Ballard Designs too, but loved them more when they started trends.... I think they brought blackboards out of the classroom and into the home...along with a neutral palette in decorating. Your knock off is awesome. The only thing keeping me from sewing my own burlap tablecloth is the week of itching I'd suffer...Great job as always Kathy! Love, Penny

Great look at a great price!

Now that is good. I have drooled over that look for sometime but no way would pay those prices. KUDOS to you, love it. Thanks for sharing at the copy cat party.

Fabulous job! I love that crocheted top over the burlap. I'm following with Linky followers now.

very pretty I love the burlap craze but I always thought it looked a bit to much like a barn for me. the addition of the crochet was just what it needed and lovely job with the copycat I'm your newest fan from the French Cottage blog hop

Love the combination of burlap, lace and print on the lampshade. Thanks for sharing. Warm greetings from sunny South Africa.
