I'm One Step Ahead of You, Pottery Barn

The other day my mom called me and told me to check out Pottery Barn's new catalog.

I cheerfully obliged.

When I opened it up to the very first page, something familiar caught my eye.

Oh that's right! Pottery Barn is using the exact same Hudsonville wire milk crates that I put in Hudson's nursery months ago!

Totally patting myself on the back for being ahead of a Pottery Barn trend!!!!

I found these Hudsonville milk crates at an antique fair when I was pregnant and just had to have them. I knew at the time we were most likely naming our baby Hudson....and if we didn't I figured they would still work in our nursery because Hudsonville Creamery is a local Michigan establishment.

Instead of storing old bottles in them like Pottery Barn, we use them on his changing table to store diapers, jammies, and burp clothes.

I still positively swoon over Hudson's nursery! It's the perfect baby boy room that can grow with him as he grows. Way to be ahead of the trend! :)

What an adorable nursery! I'd have to say I've always been really into chalkboards and chalkboard paint - they seem to have really taken off in the past year or two.

Love it!! You have such a great eye, so I'm not surprised! Really fun to see that PB is inspired by vintage finds like this too!

Don't you kinda love that feeling! I had something similar happen with the Land of Nod catalog. Can't remember where I bought the art print from (for $30) and then they were selling it for around $80! Which reminds me I really need to frame it and hang it up...

Love it! :) And I love the touch of them having his name on them! SO CUTE!

You were sooo ahead of the trend! Love it! And of course, I still LOVE Hudson's nursery, too cute!!!

I wouldn't be surprised if someone who works for PB reads your blog and decided that should be the new trend. I always love your d├ęcor and especially love Hudson’s nursery!!
