Here are some BEFORE pictures of the space...

The new mirrors, styling chairs, dryer chairs, ergo mats, shampoo chairs and station fixtures are going to be ordered and sent ASAP.  I can't wait to get in there and rip out that bench. (above)

I haven't done anything to the space yet... the good news it has been a salon for years and all the plumbing and electrical is all in place. For the most part I will just be doing cosmetic stuff. 
The floors are FIRST before anything is moved in. There is a latex floor paint on the concrete that we will strip or sand off to hopefully get down to the original concrete so that we can stain it.
The next thing on the list is a bathroom reno. I think we are going to tile the floor, put in a pedestal sink, paint and who knows what else. You can see it needs some TLC!

Here we go!

For the last ten years I have dreamed of this day! This morning I got a call from the real estate agent I have been working with on a commercial space for a salon and spa. He was calling to tell me the deal was final and I should have a key next week! I have a pit in my stomach that is 1/2 excitement and 1/2 anxiety. I am starting this blog to log all the blood, sweat and tears and to keep everyone updated on the progress of the renovations, grand opening, and success of my new business.
