"I thought you might like to see my finished stairs; I used your very wonderful Dr. Dyer's Place stair stencil. Your products are the best."

After showing her daughter, Diana, a picture of Rufus Porter's work, Teresa Salvatore asked if Diana thought she could achieve his "look" on the dining room walls. They both watched Polly's video, ordered some of her stencils and paints, and began. Although not an art major, Diana studied painting in France and her talent and instruction resulted in a lovely mural. Many of the details such as the father and son fishing, the houses in the tiny village, and some of the trees, are Diana's free-hand artistry.

“This is a photo of my dining room mural. It's the first thing I've ever painted!... I'm tempted every so often to paint over it and start again, but everyone seems to really like it.”

David Damon Tavern

In the summer of 2005, Suzanne Korn completed a project for the North Reading Historical and Antiquarian Society. In the Historical Society’s Welcome Center, located at the c.1815 David Damon Tavern, she stenciled the walls with historic designs, patterns and motifs, as originally found in a small inn room at the Old Falmouth Tavern, Falmouth, ME. The original stenciling in Falmouth was attributed to Moses Eaton, Jr., one of the most well known itinerant stencilers in the early 1800s. The lively and colorful folk art that now adorns the walls of the Welcome Center includes Eaton’s “signature” pineapple, weeping willow, and flower basket motifs. The newly stenciled walls at the Welcome Center now hum with new life, and at the same time, reflect the simplicity and warmth of life in 19th century New England.
