I worked on this area and even got some pricing done. Most of this junk, er I mean treasures, has been moved to another part of the shop. The plan is to work on one alcove at a time and move items to where they will eventually be displayed. So far so good. The plan is to keep me from getting side-tracked.
Here's a close-up of the sideboard above. I painted it a while ago. The top was faux finished to look like marble and it looked very authentic, in soft greys and lavendars. Unfortunately I used an oil-based sealer and it turned my faux marble a very dingy yellow color. Yuck! So, I stripped the top back to primer and need to re-do it. Still faux marble is really fun -- feathers dipped in paint and everything.
Late in the afternoon I was pretty burned out, so I wandered over to my neighbors' house. She has a home-based business and shop in her house. I needed a break and I thought she would really like the photo used in yesterday's post. She came back over with me and had fun poking about. She has done a lot of display work and has invited herself to come play and do displays with me when the shop is a little closer to opening. This pic has nothing to do with anything, except there needed to be a break in the text and Amy said she likes this tin.
This is a picture I took at Paris to The Moon. I was able to attend an open house there while visiting my mom, and what an amazing shop! It is such an inspiration of cool funky and pretty items, handmade beauties and eye-catching displays.
