Shop Update!

March 30, 2012 by admin

And the verdict is in…Arsenic it is!  Wanna know what sealed the deal?  I saw a chip in the paint in the old billiards hall and realized the walls had been painted this very same colour back in the day!  What are the chances?!

Also our friends James and Samantha came by to help sand the old floors.  They’re never going to be perfect gleaming floors, but they have a certain rustic charm and patina.  It’s starting to get there!

    I think all old pool halls were painted this colour, but with all dark trim.

    Michael, thanks for the updates. I’m so excited to see the finished shop I can barely stand it. I’ve always wanted to visit Toronto and now that you are opening your shop I think this fall I’ll pile the gal pals in the car and we’ll take a ride up. We’ll phone ahead to make sure you’re there! I wish you much success with your shop.

  8. Congratulations on the store and all the self-employment gigs I just read about in previous posts. Well deserved success.
