Even with the minor hiccup ( permits that weren't filed by the landlord ), there is progress. I finally finished the logo on the wall and the cash desk. The cash desk was actually a bar made out of wood from an old fishing boat. I painted it light blue and stained it with a moss green color to give it the look of being taken out of the ocean. I called around looking for a fishnet but they are sooooo expensive ( $80 for the size I was looking for! ) I bought a bunch of cheesecloth to drape from the ceiling and so I used some of it ( dyed it with leftover coffee ) and used the "Stiffy" fabric stiffener to keep the "draping" in place. Then I glued a few sea shells and rhinestones to give it the full effect.
So glad I trusted my husband's instincts when he called me and described this bar he found because it is now the focal point in the store.
