Pottery Barn Knock Off

Hey all , we are enjoying some great weather here in TN and I hope you are getting some extra sunshine where you live. 

The architectural wood pillar holders found at Pottery Barn caught my eye.

So I tried a little PB knock off.

 I got mine at Goodwill.
 It started out looking like this.
 and I gave a whopping $0.99

My hubby spray painted it the other day when it was snowing. LOL he must love me:0)

This is what it looked like when he finished. The paint ran just a little but that didn't matter to me because I knew I was going to paint it.
I started out with some watered down brown paint.
After I got all the sides painted I started tweaking it with some more paint.

I like how it turned out, and that's what I have been working on.
