Wow, I think that would be a fantastic color combination for a shop.
Bright and happy.

Be sure to take plenty of good pictures with your new camera so we can see how cute it is.

Haha! Every time I see that it reminds me of a doc I know in Florida, Dr. Bontemps. So does his name mean Dr. Good Times? icon_smile.gif

Can't wait to see the finished paint job. I love bold colors - I'm just afraid to put them on my walls. I remember when my aunt decided to paint her house - and she picked a pretty blue from a paint chip, and gave it to the painters. When she came home, half her house was painted, and she HATED it - but it was too late then. It was about 10 years before she could afford to have her house painted again. LOL!

I hope you totally LOVE the new colors. icon_smile.gif

i'm done, but alas, my camera sux....i got an idea!...i'll get one of my fancy customers to take a pic with one of those crazy phones and email it to me.

i did a big part of 1 wall with blackboard paint...and painted a funky lime green frame around it...

also painted little crazy daisies on one wall...

and some stick peeps with chef hats on...holding up spoons and whisks....i must admit that one was inspired by"2 smart cookies"......their logo is so cute, i changed it up tho.

i'm wore out, it was more work than i thought, covering that mural took 8 coats....i'm glad i did it....i used to hate pink....but looking at it makes me happy.

i'm gonna see if i can get some pics done this week....the camera i bought really sux, but it was super cheap, so what did i expect?

i feel better looking at it, since i can't start on my own place for hoo...stupid back taxes.
