Knock-offs: Pottery barn-inspired decorating

I love Pottery Barn and Anthropologie. I don't always love their prices. While I do have a few genuine PB items in my home (bought on sale or saved up for them), most of what you see is inspired by PB. I'm afraid I have champagne taste on a tap-water budget.

Today, I will share my top five favorite Pottery Barn knock-offs with you. Some are DIYs, but most are knock-offs available at other retail stores. The authentic version appears on the left and the knock off appears on the right.
