House Of Fifty Feature

To say I'm excited that the fall issue of House of Fifty is live is quite the understatement!


Do you recognize this?


That's the stenciled ikat wall in my dining room!


Check out the article on stencils by Lakeitha Duncan on pg. 14.  I was so honored to be included in this absolutely fabulous publication.  Thank you to Lakeitha for including my project among so many other great stenciling projects.  I think my mouth dropped open and then my head popped off when I saw the first page of the article!  What a thrill!  Thank you also to Janell Beals for another wonderful issue and for being such an inspiration to women of all ages!

  10. Congrats Carmel! you deserve it...that wall is gorgeous! I tried stenciling a dining room wall at my house and had to immediately paint over it b/c it turned out so horrible. I know how difficult stenciling can be and you mastered it!

  11. Congratulations! Your dining room is so stunning - a definite inspiration. I'm trying to figure out what the cool, graphic, black & white art is on your hutch. Behind the glass lamp and below the wall clock...is that another DIY?
