Join guests Lyna Farkas and Adrienne Van Dooren along with Jane Drew, Project Coordinator in New Orleans; Laine Discepoli, Sponsorship Chair in a lively discussion of the House that Faux Built project that happens the first week of November. There is still time to join in... In 2005 over 50 of the industries best decorative painters joined forces and transformed a 1940’s home in Maryland into a gallery of faux finishing, stenciling and decorative painting. The project was not merely a showcase of talent and technique, it was designed to make a difference. The house and the resulting book, The House that Faux Built, was the brainchild of Adrienne Van Dooren. The whole idea behind the project was to fund a Habitat for Humanity home in New Orleans, post-Katrina. Fast forward four years to today....the funds to build the home have been raised and the home is under construction as I write. In November a mother and two young children will have a home of their own as a result of the efforts of decorative painters with a heart.
