Its been a heck of a lot of hard work, because my new unit was a bit of a state...
Yup. Thats bamboo matting on the walls and the other walls are multi coloured!
Adam and I took the decision to remove the bamboo... And part of a wall came with it! A previous tenant had not told the landlord about a damp issue! The landlord repaired the wall and we carried on painting!
The ceiling needed about a hundred coats of paint...
Yup. It was dark blue. It is now white, but we'll do one more coat at Christmas to really cover it up. Big thank you to Lezley for providing a ceiling roller and for doing one coat on the ceiling! And for helping to build the units :D
In some places we just had to do cover ups...
Because it was easier than trying to sort out the jumble of colours, raised surfaces and general weirdness left behind!
At one point it all just seemed too much and we all had mental breakdowns! The landlord was awesome and did a coat on the ceiling to help us out! Andrew from Wrap helped Lezley and I build the units...
And it started to look like a shop!
I borrowed the rug doctor from Budgens and with little Laura's help we cleaned the carpet!
Whilst it didn't remove stains, it certainly made it look brighter and smell less musty :D
And then it was time to place the units... And get stock out!
And all of a sudden you have a shop ready to be opened!
So the new address is:
3 Weavers Walk
33 Silver Street
I just want to say a huge thank you again to everyone who helped with the move, provided support, shoulders to cry on... But mostly I want to thank Adam for being such a rock and giving everything he has to help me do this.
Hope to see you soon! We're behind Wrap and Christine's Sustainable Supermarket :)
