Aug 1 2014 - 2:32pm

Let's get real — we love everything about Anthropologie [1], but the prices can be steep! Sure, there are some bargains (especially during a sale), but more often than not, the famed laid-back, bohemian style will cost you. Fortunately, we have just the way to get the best of both worlds. We found nine spot-on DIYs covering everything from kitchenware to decor that will help you get the look for a fraction of price. No one ever needs to know . . .
