The building we just bought for The Eclipse Gallery was built in 1909, and has been pretty neglected. But I’m one of those people that loves to give new life to old things. I am so excited that we will be opening the gallery on the building’s 100th birthday! To give you an idea of the shape the building is in currently, I thought I’d post a few “before” pictures. We certainly have our work cut out for us, don’t you think?
The first thing we are doing is tearing that awning down and replacing it with something elegant, repainting the woodwork and fixing the ugliness around the main doors and big windows.
And falling down tin ceilings that must be revamped.
Over the next few months I will be using this blog to document the state of the building now, and our progress toward the grand opening. We are really enjoying this process and are so happy to be giving this building new life.
