Thanks for your interest in our progress. Our goal is to make this an inviting and comfortable space for you to visit often. As is our philosophy of supporting local businesses, we are trying to follow it as best we can by purchasing as many of the materials we need from local hardware, paint, and lumber stores. A large part of our furnishings (which will also be for sale) will come from local artists and artisans. It's going well, so far. Please visit our Facebook page if you have any suggestions, or to let us know how we are doing.
In the beginning...
Our blank canvas...
February 10 + 11, 2018
Off to a good start prepping the walls for painting. Some sandpaper, shims, and Spackle and we are ready to go (had to fix a wall built around a chairrail).
February 17 + 18, 2018
Messy work, but another (the last?) wall done. And got a couple coats done on our chalkboard walls. One more coat, then some seasoning.
February 24 + 25, 2018
Ceiling painting time. And, of course, had to fix a fix before fixing it. The previous people PAINTED OVER the wall paper on three of the walls. This is a piece we removed to decide if we want to rip it all off...... nahhh.
March 3 + 4, 2018
Finally we get to paint. And thanks to our guest painter, Matt Schofield, we got a lot done. A couple more coats on some of what's done, then on to the opposing walls and trim. Getting there.
March 10 + 11, 2018
It's getting there. Three rooms done, the hallway to go... then it's time for the furnishings. Time for a little break, though, for previously scheduled engagements. After that, back at it!
We'd love to hear what you think about how we're doing. Drop us a quick note below to let us know.
