Mosaic Monday

This will be a fun week for me!  Tuesday I finally have my long awaited meeting with the City of Newnan Planning Commission to go over the renovation plans for the outside of my future store.  Remember what it looked like before... read about it here.  Hopefully I will get the green light to make our necessary changes and we can go forth with the project.  That would include removing the vinyl siding and wooden awning.  Yeah!  In the meantime, here is a sneak peak of some of the interior design choices that I have made.
Paint, from Sherwin Williams, is Mindful Gray on side walls and Sea Salt on back focal wall.  Concrete will be stained with a semi transparent stain called Cocoa Bean, also from Sherwin Williams.  Chandeliers will be hung throughout but these 2 are my favorite!  The lighter wood chandelier will get turquoise beads added to the bottom.
Fingers crossed the brick will be in nice enough condition where I don't have to paint the outside of the building.  I have decided to put up a small dome awning over the door to replace the large wooden monster that is there now.  The awning will have a sunbrella fabric called Aruba.  Now I am on the lookout for 2 oil lamps to hang up outside during our evening events since I don't have outside lights.  So there you have it.. we are moving along swimmingly!!  For Mosaic Monday I am highlighting several outdoor storefronts that I have gotten inspiration from.  In just a few short weeks.. my Gillyweed will be ready to show off its facelift!
All pictures for this mosaic were taken from Pinterest & Google.  This mosaic has been linked up to Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.  Hope you all have a fabulous week!
