The building is new, the original building was torn down and rebuilt with apartments above and retail on the street. The space was an empty shell, so we were able to pick the flooring, the lighting and some of the paint colors. After we signed the lease agreement April 1, 2013 the fun began! We kept busy painting furniture, my hubby built our counter out of an old entertainment center.
Our window display came from 3 old doors and some leftover decking material. Our wrap counter came from 2 wood file cabinets a friend was throwing away and a butcher block top. With the key pieces in place we could finally start filling it up! We hired my niece Kourtney, who had just graduated from college in Utah as our full time employee and a coworker of my hubby as our part-time employee.
It's been quite the adventure! Many heated discussions, lots of favorite pieces of furniture I had a hard time parting with, but it's been so fun!
My word for 2014?
