I am also happy to report that we have completed the paint job on the interior walls, and it turned out awesome! No blood, a whole bunch of sweat, and no tears! My dear husband, (Donnie) displayed extreme self control and did not resort to duct taping my mouth shut, even though I took to singing very loudly to pass the time. From his reaction to said singing, I do not possess talent in this area. AT ALL! I think I have also ruined his favorite song. (He brought a radio the next day!) Anyway, I still have work to do on the trim and the doors really need work too, but overall I am happy with our progress.
Another big event this week is the successful installation of our customer counter! If you remember, this huge, heavy thing was upside down in our barn, teetering on saw horses, threatening to squish any small creatures unlucky enough to venture under there! My amazing, genius, hubby, Donnie, rigged a wench in the rafters, jacked that sucker up and backed the truck right under it! One of our grown up kiddos, Nik, came over to help out, and it was a breeze! When we got over to the shop, all we had to do was lay down plywood and wheel it in on piano dollies! Yay Donnie!!
I have gotten a whole lot of response to my artist invitations, and I am excited to get this gallery open!
