  3. Hi Kate and Abi-

    Thanks for the feature. Not going to be able to enjoy them this weekend. Irene has forced me to stow them safely away in my garage. Loving the bar cart – so chic and versatile.

    Hope you both have an enjoyable Sunday.

    My best- Diane

    I LOVE the wainscoting you featured from Soul Style. I have been searching all over the internet for something like this for MONTHS after seeing a similar wainscot featured on Martha Stewart.
