Long Day, Great Floors & Ruined Puma's

It's been a long day with getting the floors most of the way done - just need one more coat of stain and the sealer on it tomorrow. As I type this post I'm treating my back to a heating pad and hoping that I'll have full use of my arms tomorrow!

I hope your Valentine's Day was more restful than mine and enjoy viewing some photos of the progress that was made. I received a beautiful local artisan necklace from my husband, plus a full days manual labor from him, so I would say that I definitely faired well this year!

It All Begins

It's the morning of Feb. 13th and beyond being the day before Valentine's Day it's also the day that I get to begin work on my new retail space. I feel like a child on Christmas morning.

After months of planning and much deliberation I'm on a journey to open an upscale clothing and furniture resale shop in the North Albany Village next to Starbucks. I have so many ideas and plans in my head and it's thrilling to be at the point where I get to begin implementing them.

The plan for the weekend is to get the concrete floors sanded and stained in a beautiful color. I've printed out all my DIY notes on how to accomplish this and made my list for Home Depot. When you visit the shop if there are rugs everywhere you will know that all did not go according to plan! I'm confident that with my husbands help and a few extra trips to HD we'll be able to create some beautiful shiny floors to put all of my great merchandise on.

So, here I am getting the store all ready for you and I can't wait for you to visit!
