Swing Back Into Spring

Lois Butler - Tuesday, April 08, 2014

Spring has GOT to be right around the corner....... Right?
Here at  294 bord du lac we have been doing more than just spring cleaning.  
Varnishing... Check
Painting... Check
Lighting... Well almost....
Unpacking all done ....No way!
We're working like one armed bandits.......not kidding there, recall the broken wrist!

Despite that setback, things are really coming together 
and new items are going into the catalogues as I write!

Sweet scarves.

Purses that go POW!

And lots of other colourful stuff.

...And there are still lots and lots lots of boxes to get unpacked!

Thanks for looking and stay tuned. We are opening our doors very soon.

Super Woman

Who is that masked woman?

Renovations Continue

Lois Butler - Tuesday, March 18, 2014
We've certainly been working hard at the new location this week.  The brown ceiling is gone (YAY!!!!!!). 

Just a reminder - Here's the old brown ceiling......

My husband, Robert, worked nonstop to get this huge ceiling covered over the weekend. Here's a picture of the after.... well sort of after.

Even more coats of paint have been applied since this shot was taken on Sunday.  

Despite being an old building right in the heart of the village, some of the original charm has been hidden with newer finishes and utilitarian designs such as pegboard.  We're looking to return some of its former glory and character.  Along the way we have uneathed some surprises to share with you.  More on that soon.

Next up... the floor and the window wall.  Here's a reminder of the starting point.

So we have to sand and seal the floor, and I wonder what is behind those curtains?  
We're making great progress.  Keep tuned as we evolve.

And So It Begins!

We will be counting March 4th as the start of  a major transformation.
Today the signs went in the windows.

As you can see, there is lots to be done.
