nomad pdx progess

the space used to be a quilt shop classroom

...now its the future nomad Pdx!
step one: painting--this is called "celery seed"

gross carpet had to come up and the concrete scraped--ew.

ha! the secret is out--Blake made his pregnant wife climb the ladder and do the painting! (j/k--he did most of the painting, i offered to do some touch-up and it no voc paint)
*note the cool new lighting

more scraping--getting ready for paint

getting the museum pieces hung (the windows will need to be tinted to protect the art from the sun.)


hang in there B, it's almost there! *pic by mayan

I am really looking forward to seeing the new shop! I'm impressed by all the work you've put into it. Yay :)

Yay! You're back. I kept popping over here, and then I figured you had had the baby and/or were taking some time off.

The new place looks fantastic! My kids and I are coming to Portland in January, so if we are in the neighborhood will will cruise by. Me thinks there will be fewer Christmas sweaters in this new space now that the quilters are gone...those quilters love their applique.

You look fabulous by the way. Hope you are feeling great. See you later.
