I know you all want to see a peek into the store. I wish I had some before pictures, but here are a few during pictures, and it is kind of scary around here…………
this is our new front counter and new flooring, it has a temporary countertop at the moment as we are working on a cement countertop/or a cement look countertop, will explain that later. Plus the counter is going to get a sheen and wait until you see the fabulous chandelier that is going above it. I also am going to make an artwork for the back wall to cover up the messy studio. (I am doing this because I don’t know if I will like not having a window, so temporary art is a good solution)
this will be the coffee shop side of the shop. Robin “built” this premade table and chairs while I was gone so that I could see what it looked like and he set up the cozy chairs so that our little family could be cozy while we are hanging out here, until we have the real layout done. The paint looks yellow, but it is a warm caramel. Lot’s to do still!!! I need to find some rugs I love. And window treatments that I love and can afford, this will be one of my hardest tasks as the windows are custom and not normal sizes. bummer!
Okay, well, here was a peek into our chaos. I should have shown you the disaster areas, but I want you to think I am fairly perfect. 🙂 Happy Day!!!
Anyone who wants to have fun looking for affordable rugs for me, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with options. I am looking for 5×8 about and beiges and browns so that if coffee gets spilled, it will look like part of the art, but also pretty? I have found a few at Overstock, but not sure. And for those of you who wonder what affordable is? I have a super small budget, so I am thinking $300ish, I know, crazy, right! 🙂
