The raw space that I have been working with Colin and Justin~
making it into our little rustic French shop.
We painted the end wall using Chalk Paint™ in a few different colors~
then started on the kitchen cabs.
Justin thought they should be Graphite and I agreed~
they would look great with the stencil on the sink skirt.
iphone pic quality~anyhow the black is very cool in here,
we put two Hitchcock chairs up on the display shelf~
Hung up some of the sheer drapery panels...
Then I had to get back to running Maison Decor Malden,
and so Justin has been going in to Boston and setting up displays
while Colin runs in the loads...and it has been so wonderful to see him
come up with beautiful wall and table displays.
His creative talent is really blowing my mind....
wait til you see what he propsed today!
So keep reading...
Looking from the back to the front of the store at our first moments inside.
The big double doors and the window display area~
Justin decided to paint the double doors with
traditional chalkboard paint by Rustoleum!
He painted all the green metal utility lights Graphite Chalk Paint
and then added King Gold gilding wax to them~
I LOVE IT!!
I still haven't seen it in person,
so I am just like YOU, watching it on my monitor and
it is very exciting to see him create a space like this for us!
And on the doors he used our new Marker Ink pens and free handed
this French script font he looked up on his iPhone!
Added a fleur de lis, and then the neat line with the french word for paint
How cool is that? So cool, said momma bear....
I ordered these on Amazon...I don't think they are in any local stores yet.
They are so neat and cool to write with on the board~
so crisp and sharp!
And on the other side of the double doors is Florence with gilding wax!
We just love how these doors came out!
The front looked like this two weeks ago....
Justin painted the beadboard under the window today~
it leads the eye up to the doors.
We have plenty left to do outside, but for now Florence
will guide our customers to us on Saturday!
so Good night Maison Decor Boston~until tomorrow....
