Transformed...

I took up an old picture to hang on the newly painted walls to see what the old finish looks like against the gray and black paint we decided to paint the walls. We don't have much wall space, it's mostly windows so the backs of cupboards and shelves will have to be used for each setting...no problemo...

The gray just looks so elegant and the wood around all the windows will be left unpainted adding contrast to the painted woods that will be dragged in, this will be interesting how we will pull off the look in this new space...

...but covering most of the red on the walls and painting the light fixtures flat black, make the space look bigger...

Kids gotta be kids...as people strain to see inside through all the paper on the windows, Piper and her friend Pat drew a stick person with eyes cut out so the peeps can check out the progress...
all we see is rolling eyeballs...LOL!

I really think painting above the light fixtures from white to black, makes a statement, it just isn't as busy and looks fresh...

The mall entrance by Tan World, we are down the hall from them...

...our hall, newly carpeted, looking toward front entrance...

...side entrance of Tan World, one of the new stores that is really taking off and will be major for getting new peeps to the mall...
we're excited, so week after next, we start to move it all in...
did I mention my brain hurts...

Looks "uptown". I know what hard work is ahead for you but think what you'll have when you're done. Take it easy!

I think your new space will be wonderful! You must be so excited. I know I would be. I can't wait to see how you put it all together. After seeing your displays at Sisters, this shop will be over the top!
