Colors, Refrigerators and Furniture!

You wouldn't believe the progess that's been made in the new space in this last week! Here are some highlights:
  • All the holes in the floor from the old McD's furniture were patched by Ozzy and Jesse
  • The walls were prepped for paint by Sarah
  • On Wednesday Emily from SPACE interior design in Greenwood did a complimentary color consult and helped us pick out beautiful, bright, Greenbeanish colors for the walls
  • The ENTIRE interior was painted on Friday by a huge group of you....THANKS
  • We made a trip to Portland on Friday to purchase fridges, soup warmers, shelving and more...and scored 2 orange wingback chairs for FREE!
  • Saturday the back wall of the kitchen was constructed with help from Cole and Ben so you can now see where the kitchen, seating area and back rooms will be
  • Donations are beginning to come in...children's books, adult books, a piano bench, 2 rugs, a router, mirror for the men's room....yeah! Thanks SO MUCH for all of your generosity!

What's next? We're beginning to collect donations this week, and setting up the shop to begin painting furniture...and we're awaiting word that our building permit has gone through so we can begin work on the actual kitchen area. So we still need helpers...but can now use folks interested in redoing furniture in addition to construction!
