Making progress in the new store

Today we painted the soffit where the lights are hidden along the walls.  The space is amazing  with huge skylights and exposed concrete structure.  Those soffits  were PINK!!!!! They looked so out of place in this industrial building so we painted them a deep charcoal grey.
  Thanks Melody and friend for all of your help today, it looks amazing!

Projects for the Week

The china hutch is from the 80's I'm thinking Old Town Paints vintage white for the outside with some antique wax and Lake View on the inside.  The phone bench looks old but its a repro.  I think it would make a great bedside table... put a lamp on the little shelf and then use the bench to put on your shoes in the morning!  the uphulstry is a really nice aqua/turquoise color and in super good shape... what color for this one???
