More Trellis Awesomeness

By Kate Riley July 28, 2010

I was oh so giddy to receive a note from a reader that he had recently stenciled his walls with an amazing trellis pattern in his living room just like I did in our master bedroom.

“I have been reading your blog for awhile now and love everything about it, and because you are in the Bay Area!  Your blog motivated me me to create my own Jonathan Adler "lite" lamp using parts from the St. Vincent de Paul store in Oakland and to do some plantings in my garden/patio.  However, when I saw you were stenciling your wall, I thought I would share a recent project I just completed for my living room.  While I was not as industrious as yourself in making my own stencil (I bought it online) our desire for a similar pattern is evident.”

Doesn’t his living room have that ‘wow’ factor with that amazing wall ?   I also love the gray sofa, the shag rug, and the Lucite coffee table.  Completely fantastic Courtney!

Courtney purchased a trellis stencil online ~ you can read his entire tutorial right here  including the paint colors and tricks he used to achieve this stunning effect, and the source of his fabulous stencil. 

Love it!

  3. Thanks Kate for the shout out on your blog. The project was easy and fun! And when I get tired of it, I can simply paint over it. And thank you to everyone for the kinds words and wishes!

  4. Maybe I’ll be brave and really give this a try. That looks really awesome. I could do something like that in my master room or bathroom. I don’t know. I {think} I can get it done.

  5. Such a wonderful job! I love the tile stencil used here, and that whole living room looks wonderful!
    I need to pop over there and read more, thanks for sharing this! Side note: that ‘movie set’ light fixture is amazing!!

  6. Wow! Courtney did exactly what I’d like to do in my family room. Thanks for sharing his project with us!

  7. Is it just me or are there two projects here? One about a lamp and one about a wall? Love the Lamp and love the wall even more!
