This week- we spent every waking hour slaving over the Show Pony shop- repainting, reworking, recovering, & rebuilding. I don't think I've ever sworn as much as I did while doing all of this. I have new found respect for anyone who does anything in construction. It was also a reality check for my patience levels...I have discovered I have next to none when it comes to things bought from Ikea. My worker- Britt deserves a golden monument for putting up with this weeks work. It's funny how a little feng sui can make a space sunny. We painted the walls a sweet golden buttercup and made all the furniture metallic gold. We worked like Laverne and Shirley and realized that a handyman is the next thing on our wish list. Even the dressing room had a makeover. The monthly gallery opening was last night- and the room was big enough for dancing. If anyone knows any great designers or dress makers- we are on the lookout, cause the racks are bare.
