Normally I wouldn't share pictures until I was totally done, I'm very picky about not wanting anyone to see what I'm working on until it is finished. (VERY PICKY) about that. We can only work on shoppe at night after my husband gets home or on weekends (when customers are out shopping), So I have had to let up on the no peaking until done rule, and allow customers to come in , while we are working on the next space over.
The shoppe next to mine was a hair salon- so we had to eliminate some water piping-build around some piping- take down a wall- and totally re-build my register area and non stop sweep.
This is the shoppe before we started, (nice) but not my colors- this shoppe is the same square footage 360-
I decided i wanted a rustic by shabby look, I found these slots of thin wood at a hardware store laying out front for $15 - ( I got a million of them) So we covered the back of both shoppes with it, and painted it a dark white color. When I opened my shoppe I painted a neutral light light pale blue- But the whole time wishing it were a pale pink- but was guided away from pink(in which i just love). SO now that we are making a big mess, i decided I'm going with the pink that i love.
And well more of a mess- (which is driving me CRAZY), the dust is EveryWhere- and you can see where the wall was-
So this is a Sneak Peak, we worked all weekend, and night and almost finished the new register area.
Expanding has offered an opportunity to change some things- the Original register we built to high,so no counter stool fit with it, so I had to sit on my knees on a counter chair to use my computer, and when my family came up to hang out or visit for lunch on weekends there wasn't enough room.
SO now we can alter those things...
My mind & Design Dreams have to go with my budget, so somethings I have to be Creative, and just can't wait to share my new 720 square foot shoppe..
P.S. and my landlord still won't budge on that ceiling..
