DIY | pottery barn inspired rustic lantern

how to make a pottery barn rustic lanternAs I was putting myself to sleep the other night…HGTV softly playing in the background, favorite home decor magazines scattered all over the bed, laptop open to my favorite websites…I came across this image…

lanternI was so bleary-eyed that I forgot to jot down where I found this image, but found a very similar, almost identical one listed at One Kings Lane.

The old DIY light-bulb went off and all I could think about for the next hour or so was “I can totally make that!”  Another sleepless night.  Does that happen to you?

My son was at pre school the other day and my daughter had a friend over so I seized the moment and banged out my version of this rustic lantern in an hour.
