Moving Into The French Door

    I left off in my last blog post showing you the condition of the building when we first got the keys.

    We hired a cleaning crew and got to work.  After they were done we got a painter to come in.  He taped everything off and sprayed the white paint on the ceilings walls and top shelves.

    After painting was done we then tried to figure out how we were going to organize the store.
