I would stop by just to see the bathroom!  and then get a cup of coffee! Cheesy

Fabulous job!  The postcards idea was great...can you tell us if you have gotten any reactions from the patrons?  I bet they love it...uh, maybe too much?  Is the line out the door a long one? Cheesy

What a wonderful redo! The bathroom looks fantastic now. I'll be the coffee shop owner feels she got the best of that bargain. I featured this project on Craftster's Facebook page. Thanks for sharing!  Smiley

Thanks -- for the compliment and for the publicity. Smiley We made the front page of the local newspaper with the project shortly after I started it. Now that it's finished, I'm hoping the coffeehouse owner can milk it for a little more media attention.

...can you tell us if you have gotten any reactions from the patrons?  I bet they love it...uh, maybe too much?  Is the line out the door a long one? Cheesy

The day after I put the chalkboard paint on the door, they covered it with sweet messages about how much they liked it. It's gotten a lot of attention, and a lot of people came to watch me work and ask questions about what I was doing.

I wasn't in any particular hurry to finish, because I remembered how people would react when I painted stuff on the lab windows at the Wal-Mart Vision Center where I worked in college. Shoppers would stop to watch for a while or walk past every few minutes to check my progress. I always got the feeling my Wal-Mart projects drew more attention when they were incomplete than they did when they were finished, because people were interested in seeing the next addition.

I figured if I could string the coffeehouse project out over several months, I could keep myself out of trouble all winter and hopefully lure people into buying a cup of coffee every few days just to have an excuse to come in and see what I'd added. Smiley

Not only are you a talented artist, but you are a smart business woman! Wink

My hubby does huge wall murals and says the same thing...people are more interested in the progress and the daily changes than the finished product!  No wonder he takes six months to do a mural! Cheesy
