Remember the “brick” wall in my laundry closet? Well, on my last trip to Texas I found a faux brick wall that beat it in realistic looks… hands down! We found it while we were doing some window shopping in vintage and antique stops around the downtown square in Waxahachie, Texas. It was in a cute vintage shop called High Cotton Emporium.

High Cotton Emporium
We met one of the shop owners, Chrissy, while we were there. She told us they had been open for just a little over a month.
Love this vintage vignette with real cotton stems!
This is the view from the front of the store. You can see the faux brick wall at the back but it doesn’t show up very well in this photo. We didn’t think anything about it. Most of the shops around the square are in old buildings and many have exposed brick walls.
But this wall was actually brick veneer! Here’s a close up:
Chrissy told us that she used sheets of brick veneer to cover the wall, smeared it with plaster of Paris, then roughly painted over it. A faux German Smear!
