We're in the process of making a few changes at Bow Street Flowers. Years ago, I had a great designer named Larry who described my urge to move things around : "she's got a bee in her bonnet and we'll have to make this work!" Much to Gillian's chagrin, we entered into our bi annual furniture shift. We purchased a new design table: a German Oak drafting table that had been altered to lay flat. It's square-ish and much better than the 'kitchen island we were using.
Not an easy project: we had to move the rabbits to make room for the old table, we moved my desk to the front of the shop for bride consults.
Then we moved the behemoth counter. It's ten feet long and weighs a ton. This created a new entrance to the back of the shop that's more centered.

I bought an old white wicker chair with an ugly floral cushion from the Cambridge Antique Market. We painted it black and I found some black and white striped linen at Gather Here on Broadway (if you're in Boston, check this place out - they sell hard- to- find Liberty of London fabric ).
The last project is still in the works. We're painting the old green etagere black and we're putting it in the window. Photos on Monday!
