There was very little in the Shop when we first took it over a year ago. We knew we had to work on the Grand's cottage first, to get them in and settled and cosy. Their comfort and well being took preference over the amount of work we had before us which had to be achieved within a relatively short period of time.
We are now assessing what we can use from what was already there, and have concluded that it isn't much. There were a few chairs which we will re-cover and a few tables which were badly damaged. As I write this, the Machinist is ordering stainless steel sheets to cover the damaged tables. The table framework will be powder-coated in black early next week, so that they will only be awaiting their stainless steel tops. Black and silver. Classic.
I have to say, - the time is drawing near, and while scary - it's also so very exciting.
