We are in full blown painting (not the creative kind) mode of the shop. My family has shown up with enthusiasm to help. My brother calls it "his" scrapbook store and is a stickler for perfection. I'm so thankful for everyone's help. Friends are making coat racks and my SIL loves painting black trim!
This was the first thing we put up after painting. My brother picked this out and brought it to me as "store warming" gift!
Here are a few pics of the classroom area before and after. I'm not crazy about the carpet and I'm hoping the owners will pitch in with a little allowance otherwise I'll have to live with it for a while. :)
Before and After of the retail area and my brother working hard!
I am so thankful for my family! More to come!
