Our New Reading Store! Take a tour~

 Welcome to our new Maison Decor store 
Reading, Massachusetts at 150 Main Street!
 We officially open for first day of business Monday July 15th.  
We will still be tweaking and adding items all week long~but here is how
 far we have come in the two weeks since we got the keys. 
We created a European village vibe by painting the floors to look
 like cobblestones, and the walls to look like plaster. 
Of course we used Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan~more in depth tutorials 
will come in the next month or so, but for now its a quick look at 150 Main. 
We made a special section in the back area for our famous WORKSHOPS!
 I am truly excited about this area~drapery panels set the section off, 
and you can walk inside and check out the paint samples and 
wall chart colors. This area will be added to in the coming weeks.
 The main floor is a retail zone where we sell home furnishings 
and accessories in both antique and reproduction varieties. 
One thing we are waiting on is our sign to be installed, at this point the old
liquor store sign is still above the store front! 
Our new sign will look like this~dark aqua on a black background.
But until then look for the liquor store that sells Chalk Paint!! lol

 Scroll through the next few pics to see what we have added so far~
 Home decor books and accessories~
 Vintage mirrors galore~
 Hand painted furnishings~
 Wonderful fabrics~
 Vintage accessories and antiques as well as reproductions!
 We love how it feels in the shop!
 Painting the floors, ceilings and walls made 
for such an enchanted space. 
But it didn't get this way took 12 of them in fact!
 You can see Colin carrying in some table legs 
and the wall behind him is still builder white.
 In this shot Justin is entering carrying a chandelier and 
the wall is now ragged with Chalk Paint® in Country Grey and Paris Grey. 
Its soft and beautiful and everything looks good in front of it. 
 Couldn't pass up this chance to snap them with two antique chandeliers!
 Bringing in the bigger pieces of furniture after the painting
 had finished was the first part of setting up the shop.
 Boxes were everywhere.  We worked well together as a team 
and after many hours and truckloads it would come together.
Here you can see the difference the ragged walls make in the space!
Lots of lugging in of items and props from Colin's red truck.  
The vanity in the front would be painted soon~and the walls would be 
ragged and the draperies sewn and hung.
 It was finally time to open our doors~we still don't have a sign yet though.
 So look for us under the old liquor store sign!!!! 
OMG that is the worst part for me...having no sign, 
but they are working quickly to get it finished.
We took this basic blah store from this....
To this!
 We are located in the Laschi plaza next to 
Harrows Chicken Pies and Calareso's Farm Stand
at 150 Main Street.
We are open Monday- Friday 10-6
Saturday 11-4 and Sunday 11-3
Colin, Justin and I will be there Monday morning~and all week long! 
Looking forward to doing more with our shop as each day allows, 
but for now we would love to see you!!
