I know I've been missing in action and I haven't had a chance to create (I really miss that). I come home and crash after working at the barn but I'm on schedule for a soft opening on March 2nd and grand opening on March 15th. Woohoo! Even though I am really tired, I'm so excited to fulfill this dream. Again.... I do miss creating.
Sooooo..... I'm really proud to say that almost everything in my shop is 'used" or repurposed. The only new stuff I have are the tables and chairs in the studio area. Sorry about the terrible quality.... The sun was shining everywhere.
OK, I'd be lying if I didn't say I LOVE this area.
I went to a gi-normas used retail warehouse in Sacramento and picked up some less than perfect fixtures. All it took was a little flat black paint and a spray gun and I was happy.
I couldn't resist putting some paper in the rack just to see what it looks like. Both these racks were white.
Yea, I don't like the blue carpet but replacing it was a little too pricey. I keep telling myself, do I want carpet or product? There are a lot of those dilemas I run into these days. Just like getting the whole "Quickbooks" package. $2300 for the entire package (register, barcode maker and scanner and software) and it would make my life easier but sheeeesh, that's a huge amount right now. Product or Quickbooks? Product. I'm going with the $250 Quickbooks software and hopefully, I'll be able to upgrade in the future!
Ok Friends, thanks for stickin' with me. Nighty night!
