And so it begins ...

Today was the beginning of some serious, let's get down and dirty,  gypsy barn business !!
The doors were opened ...

Our trucks were loaded ... fine example of "junk in the trunk" ...
What to do with twenty ugly metal gray shelves ??
florescent lighting ??

Bring on the muslin, lace, gauze, canvas, and our favorite burlap ...
start wrappin' Beth!

Shelves are starting to 'disappear' and I bet you can't even see the light fixture ... I think we kinda have a beach cabana feeling going on ...
today we choked on dirt and dust ... sucked up bugs with the shop vac ... swept ... sneezed and laughed,
hung 15 x 15 canvas drop cloths and had many 'design discussions' ...

Tomorrow ... we will do the same, plus ... 
run the electrical wires ... string twinkle lights ... and arrange the above architectural features.

Can you believe we are still smiling?
We can!

See ya back at the barn ...
Beth and Jill
