It's Only Paint

This idea has been in the back of my head from the beginning.  I know it's a bold move.

I wanted some color in the coffee shop and now I have it! I'm going to look at this for a while before I decide if it stays. It's only paint. I can always change it.

I'm also trying different layouts for the serving area.

I may just buy a display case instead of trying to build one with a curved counter? I'll need to find one that is the right dimensions. This one is on Ebay.

If I can't find the size I need, I may try Lesley Shepherd's tutorial at About to make one?

Thank you for all of your sweet comments about my coffee cup book shelf. :D

I made it using one piece of card stock that was 3/4" wide and 11 1/4" long.  Then I just folded it to the shape I wanted, glued it, added a back and wooden shelves.

I might need to make one that is just a little bit smaller now that I see where it will go. I may not add the back to the next one and just leave it open?  We'll see...

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Love the color blocking, Kathi!
LOL, you are as fickle as I am...but isn't that a huge part of the fun? :)

Just follow your inspiration! It's the best thing to do.

I'm already thinking that the orange is too strong. Good thing I have lots of primer and paint! LOL

Very modern colours. I want to see the coffee shop with the interieur.
Thank you for the link.

It looks more terracotta than orange in the photos Kathi - perhaps this is a good shade to try if the orange is too strong? I personally love the combination of terracotta, tans, creams and browns so I'm prejudiced :) I love the second arrangement of the counter with the covered section at the front. And thanks for sharing your method of making the coffee-cup bookshelves - so clever. Sandie
