One of the decorating stories I’m most proud of is this gingham story from the July 2011 issue of House & Home Magazine. It took me quite a while to measure, tape and paint that gingham design on that wall! And guess what – we had to paint over it with gray the very afternoon I’d finished! That’s a photo shoot for you! Be sure to check this story out in House & Home for even more gingham ideas.
This week, my gingham dining room is part of an online gallery of favourite dining rooms from the past 25 years of House & Home. There’s some stiff competition from the likes of Jeanette Hlinka, Lynda Reeves, Sarah Richardson and Cameron MacNeil, but users are invited to vote on their favourite dining room. I wonder if there’s a prize…?
Our own dining room here at our home in Oshawa is part of the gallery too and has gotten a few votes! It’s nice to see too because it was done on a modest budget and yet it’s holding its own against some fancy, high end projects. Yay DIY!
