Saturday was our baptism by fire at The Grapevine ... we ran the shop for a day !!! What an adventure for the two of us! Hubby had great plans to get started painting and cleaning while I did all the retail end of the business for the day ... as they say "The best laid schemes of mice and men ..."
And go awry they did ... a steady stream of customers. Furniture sales, carrying, hefting, moving ... rearranging ... I'm not sure what I would have done without him !!!
So, we stayed after the shop closed and did our work then.
Moved things around, took down shelves ... painted. We came back early the next morning and put things back together and started arranging things.
Here's what the space looked like before we began:
And here's the progress we made this weekend ...
The transformation is nearly complete. Still more work to do, and more pictures will follow !!!
