Hey everyone!! Remember me ??? I just want to touch base with you and say Hi and let you know all is going well. It’s so hard to believe that Summertime is over and Fall has begun. I’m already missing the beautiful summer days, lounging around and enjoying the easy living. I’ve always loved this particular song and the way Sylvester sings it- just moves my soul. ( I know you’re probably saying – this girl and her music – and you’re right.. this girl and her music is her life) .. I’d be a lost soul without it.
Well, we are finishing up painting the shop. Boy, it’s more work than I thought, but it’s worth it. Just thought I’d share a few before pictures of the shop and what I’m working with. Please don’t be too critical, because it’s been vacant for months and TLC is all it needs. We’re pretty excited about it.
This is the beginning stages of “Pieces of Time” Antiques & Home Decor Boutique.
Of course we’ll be adding some curb appeal too! Perhaps a window box and of course some planters.
We were pleased to have the display cases which will come in handy
I thought picking out paint colors would be fun, but it’s actually very challenging but these were a few selections I came home with..
Considering the size of the space we are working with I had to narrow down the selection to one color. It was a tough decision, but I think you’ll like one I chose. I also have to tell you about my good luck fortune. Sometimes, God works in mysterious ways and he’s really blessed me with finding things. I was extremely happy when I found these brass shelving units which would be perfect for the shop and the price was $35.00 for each, but the gentlemen let them go for $30.00 ea (talk about insides screaming – yippeeee).
Then I came across a lady selling paint. Could you believe this!! She had a 5 gallon bucket of Behr flat white paint – never used or opened.. for $5.00. I just couldn’t believe it. All I could say was- “Thank You God” for your blessing, because he knows I’m working on a shoestring budget. Well that’s all I have to share so far. Like I said, I just wanted to touch base – and hoping all is well you. Have you found any goodies lately or done any projects? If so, please share, I’d love to hear all about it. Also, don’t forget to follow along with me on my VivaGram and Twitter. If you find goodies and like to share, use hashtag #urthriftygirlfinds so I feature them on my Friday Finds. Until next time – ta-ta.. smooches,
