We're beginning to acquire a lot of stuff for the store and it's been accumulating in our apartment.

This morning I went to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I didn't even know it existed, but the girl that is helping Wayne design his side brought him there yesterday and he told me about it. I found some pre-finish and stain for the tables and bar top and bought an amazing Chandelier for $35.

We may end up spray painting it because we were originally intent on finding a gold chandelier. We wanted it to match this other lighting fixture we brought up from California when we moved. It's been sitting in our apartment for over a year and a half waiting to be restored to its former glory.

But it's kind of interesting that the chandelier turned out to be purple. We have a Justin Bua poster that we love and may turn out to be the focal point of the room. The background is a deep red just like our walls.

In the poster, he contrasted the red with green and purple. So maybe the purple in the chandelier will go well?? I guess we have to wait until we get the room painted and see how it looks. Either way, we're excited with all of our acquirements.
