The Beginning of Collective Curl
First Pic of Collective Curl
This was the 1st day seeing what would later be Collective Curl.
I know what you're thinking...so roomy! Right?!?
You're about to see this old doctor clinic turn into a salon suite!
The work begins...
First things first...let's get the furniture and carpet (eww) outta here!
That tile though...
Once we got through the carpet adhesive enough to see the tile underneath we kind of fell in love with the vintage look of it.
Original flooring uncovered
Finally removed all of the carpet adhesive to see the original flooring!
These pillars are structural so they are seen throughout the entire building. At first I saw an obstacle, now I see an artistic opportunity...
We loved the original flooring but unfortunately couldn't get it to the best condition. So we are painting over it with black & white to give it the vintage barbershop flooring appeal.
Texture and Paint for wall
I decided to let myself go crazy with this wall. It is to be the wall that will hold my mirror so, being that I'd be looking at that wall most of my working days, I wanted it to have endless details to keep it interesting. Seriously a fun project!
"Finished" ...for now
Here's the finished suite the day before official opening.
Here's the original shampoo area. We had many headaches and frustrations during this remodel, but looking back on it now, we learned a bunch and we rocked it given the amount of space we had to work with.
Here we go again!
The suite next door to mine has come available. Now it's time to remove the separating wall to double my space! At this point I had been in business for 1 year.
The Crazy Wall
Here is a great shot of the finished "Crazy Wall of Textures." In the first photo I had just started adding plaster marks, embedding designs and adding paintable wallpaper in shreds to give it an original look. After all that business, we decided on this metallic gold paint to finish the project off.
Remodel in full force!
The separating wall is out! Now it's time for...well...IDK. Jonathon-my partner in crime-is the boss at this current juncture so I'm awaiting orders from him:)
Here's the original flooring making another appearance as we get the other suite ready.
Making progress and making a mess!
Working diligently on that wall removal.
More adhesive removal
The wall separating my suite and this suite
Here's the suite next door to mine. This wall is coming down soon.
Here it goes!
Jonathon starts cutting the sheetrock out in sections...what am I doing? you ask. I'm hauling those sheets of sheetrock down 1 floor to the dumpster. Sheesh!
Here's the wall from my side
The other crazy wall
The wall of random. My suite is now double the size and ready for business once again!
So much more room!
After working in that tiny suite for a year I am so elated to have more space!
Still work to do
Always more work to do...
