A long time vision has come to fruition and in an awful hurry!!
Back in April I was selected to be part of a new venture of Laura Gray's vision. While she was busy prepping her new "Coach House Studio", I was busy doing volleyball camps, appearances and private clinics (yes that is my other passion - inspiring the next generation of female volleyball athletes. While I was in Ottawa in early August, I got an email from Laura half way thru asking what size space did I want to have....???? yikes!!! OMG..now what do I commit to??
I measured out all the various sizes and all the dreams of what I had been wanting to paint and do and haven't as of yet. Then I put myself back to the Tony Robbins seminar that I attended in Chicago back in mid July. I put on my big girl panties and said GO FOR IT!!! I was not going to play small.
Laura was asking us to come that weekend and start decorating and assembling the space...what?? I was in Montreal for the weekend and said I would come meet her on Monday...well Monday came and I was up for an 8am 2 hour practice... went home and started chalk painting all the pieces that have been waiting for me all these years!!! and I mean YEARS!!!! I went Tuesday to look at my space and my eyes must have been wide as saucers!!!... Laura said I could paint, wallpaper, put in carpet whatever I wanted...this was 11 days before opening!!! Did she not know that I had an appearance in Huntsville sports camp the next day, and 2.5 days of kettle corn selling. and tons of painting/waxing/distressing to do!!.
so I did what I have learned to do best over these past few years...
Let Go & Let God...
in my case, I asked my heavenly angels (my mami & ati) to help me come up with a vision.. it was nothing that I had expected.. I was thinking pink & black... they came up with heavenly clouds!!
Once I set my mind in motion, the universe answered:
- asked for a china hutch on facebook, I was lead to a white wicker bookcase at the Restore for $20
-asked for another piece to display, one of the other vendors said she had a wrought iron type white arch unit with glass shelves that would look great for your glassware
-asked for guidance on how to paint the walls, Annie Sloan book had how to do walls that look old.. (Laura, a master interior designer, loved the look...phew)
-the only original piece I bought was the black rug to anchor the space!!
it all came together just perfect!! thanks to my heavenly angels!!!
