Soft Opening.

Dear Friends and Shop Passer-byers (I know, not a real word),
Sorry I've been so bad about updating you on the status of the shop. Just interpret the lack of blog postings as me working that much harder on getting the shop ready to open! I hope to post a blog no later than Sunday with pictures, but until then, I'd like to announce our "soft" opening. This coming Monday through Thursday, the shop will be open to you, the public, from 11am till 6pm. So come on in, browse around, try out my new Keurig Coffee Maker (I'm slightly obsessed) and be the first to see all the interesting pieces we've accumulated for you. Can't wait!
See you soon. 
And don't forget to bring a friend :)

Oh Dear.

We're now on Day 6 of key possession (got the keys to the shop Wednesday), and let me just say to all you Morrowfield residents a big SORRY for the fire alarm a few days ago. Let me explain. In pictures.
Man Meets Wall

"Man Meets Wall"- my dad titled this picture, I think very appropriately. As you can see, my husband is attempting to saw through a six inch wall, when he then realized the wall was made of cement. (Disclaimer: we had at least 3 other maintenance men come look at the wall before attempting to cut. Not one guessed it was made of cement). No problem. We'll just get a saw that's made to cut through it.
This led to a massive amount of dust so thick I could barely see my husband or my dad (wish I was smart enough to get a picture of this). Which then set of the fire alarm for the entire building. Which just happens to be an entire city block long. I walked out of the shop to see cribs filled with babies from the daycare down the street being pushed outside. So sorry for the fire drill little ones! At least we know it works! And I promise, it won't happen again. Lesson learned.

Final Product: a beautiful Maple and glass door. 
Color: Lowe's Olympic Paint- Elephant Gray
 I was extremely overwhelmed with the amount of dust caked on my floors/walls, but I'm pretty ecstatic about the final result. Oh, and the color. I was totally going for a lighter gray, but paint is ALWAYS different once you get it on your walls. I'm notorious for painting a wall seven times over before finding a color I'm happy with. Even though this turned out more purple-y than hoped for, I'm okay with it. So it stays.

Sunday, we got the furniture all thrown in. "Thrown" being the key word. It's all stashed in the middle of the store since we're (sadly) not done painting. Now I have to arrange and price it all. And that, my friends, I'm afraid might take me ages. Especially with this little stink pot. Because who can deny a face like that?
