Shop Sneak Peek

Hello!  Happy Friday!  
We've been working practically round the clock to get our shop ready for it's Grand Opening Saturday morning and boy are we exhausted.....but it's a good exhausted, you know?  
Anyway, I wanted to give you a little sneak peek.....
 

I love this night time shot because of the lights we have inside the store.  
Speaking of lights.  
When we first rented this place, we weren't allowed to do all that much, which was fine because it really is a fantastic building, however, the ceiling light fixtures were very outdated ceiling fans with those tulip shaped light covers on the light kits, which I hate.  
Replacing the fixtures was not really a good option so I decided to remove the ugly light covers and add Edison bulbs to give them an industrial vintage feel. 
 We absolutely love it.  It was certainly a fun, easy update.


And the glow they provide is really nice and vintage.  Love that.....


Here are a just a few of the things you can find here....


Lots of vintage door knobs and hardware....


Vintage suitcases and steamer trunks....



Vintage castors....



Italian vintage drinkware.....


Every kind of number and sign you can imagine....


Industrial salvage....


And the cutest set of copper keys, plus tons more.  There is pretty much a little bit of everything here.  :)  Which is the way we like it.  :)


Stay tuned for photos of the Grand Opening!  

And hopefully I'll be back to home projects soon!  :)

Have a great day!

P.S.  I'm having trouble posting the link but the Edison bulbs can be found at 1000bulbs.com.  :)
