Martha does it again

October 26, 2010

A month or so ago, I hit the launch of Martha Stewart's new cabinet line at Home Depot and was impressed with the selection.  Here's the most modern take of her new line.

Localvores were lusting after her gardening room, made with her line of course.  Maybe a green thumb is the "gift with purchase."

But my favorite part of the night was watching a staffer paint impressive faux painting techniques with her new kit.   For a mere $18.97, Martha Stewart Living Decorative Painting Tool  Kit offers up all the tools you need to create endless patterns.

See her sample board of the different techniques.  Each square offered a different pattern. 

My personal favorite was the herringbone pattern-subtle yet handsome and the faux bois. It looked like a $200/ yard wallpaper instead of a $18 kit (paint not included).  

Isn't this gorgeous?

And the gray is so elegant.  Can't you see this in the back of an armoire or studio?

The pink & green combo faux bois isn't nearly as girly as it sounds.  The effect is subtle and soo Martha. 

Being a skeptic from struggling through some of her crafts before, I personally tried this out and was impressed with how easy it is. Start with a small area (maybe one wall in the laundry room or a foyer).  You'll become so addicted you'll start faux finishing everything in sight.  

Live large,
