Storefront - BEFORE

These photos were taken 4/23/2011 a few days before demolition began.  It has been quite a process!  The space was a Hair Salon/Spa before and there ended up being quite a bit more work needed than we realized.

This is the front of the store from the Right side

View from the Left side

This is the Left Wall in the front of the store.  We shortened the wall and are going to leave it for a Display area.  This will be a rotating display...bed, kitchen, whatever goes best with the theme featured that month.

Right Wall in the front of the store.  We left this wall and will have another display area.  This is going to feature Baby/Kids items - probably going to be my most favorite part of the store

View standing from the front door - the view to the back.  Being that is was a Spa/Salon before - there are many little rooms throughout.  We took out all the walls opening up the store.

One of the many rooms in the middle of the store

This is in the middle of the store.  The view is looking from the Right Wall towards the Left Wall. The wall that juts out to the right of the open door is where the Classroom will be.  The door immediately on the right is the bathroom.

Another view of where the Classroom will be.  The bathroom door (on the right side of the photo) has been moved to the back and this smoothed into a full wall.

This is the far Left corner - the windows are actually the back of the store.  We are going to have the classroom in this area.  All the light coming in will be fantastic for the classroom.

This wall is directly across from where the classroom area is going to be.  Again, the windows are the back wall.

Front of the Oaks Mall Plaza.  We are going into the empty space upstairs between Tan USA and Great Southern Music - above the Nail shop.  The Elevator is just to the left of Tan USA - so we'll be just one store away from it.

I'm going by tonight to get some updated photos. I am SOOOO ready for the shop to open.  The new lines for Fall have arrived and my thread and a few display fixtures.  We have  a whole obstacle course now in the front hallway & piano room in our home!  In fact, maybe I'll include a picture or two of that!
