"Go confidently in the direction of your dream. Live the life you’ve imagined."
My new space in Agoura has been inching along at a snails pace, due to the management taking their own sweet time. This week things have progressed much more swiftly, although I was informed that the paint I had chosen, for the second time, would cost a fortune mainly due to labor.
For the paint I settled on a low VOC, environmentally friendly, flat taupe for most of the walls, particularly the high ones. Greg and I may add some texture to them as well as some Venetian plaster to the front facing low wall.
The wrought iron garden trellis I bought for the door to the apothecary has been made into a door and now needs some antiquing to the newly added metalwork frame and a door handle.
Since I've used up my allotted expense money for the space I am crafting a fan funding event to help me get a few things, such as counters for the apothecary area where I'll be making all the fragrant potions, etc.
