Yeah, if you want a snazzy bathroom look, you have to do the dirty work yourself. I got the sink & faucet from eBay and installed it myself. It took awhile, several trips to the hardware store. Those Ace guys really got sick of me, I'm sure. But I figured it out. Had to reinforce the wall with plywood in order to mount the sink. The kitchen was on the opposite wall. So that helped a lot with that bit of plumbing. I was working both ends of the pipe, so to speak.
There is more to getting a gallery ready for a show
than I ever realized. Aside from
getting the gallery space presentable, I still had to revamp the living space which will also affect exhibits. After all, the bathroom and kitchen area will be used during gallery openings. So these areas have to look artistic and polished.

We opened the Gallery Saturday night the 29th for the Art Walk halloween party. We were serving Cosmo martinis and had quite a few visitors to the gallery as a result. I'd estimate 60 people came by. Along with the cocktails we served chocolate toes and fingers and apple slices with caramel. Yumm. Everyone looked at the drawings and some inquired about the pricing. We didn't actually sell a piece yet.
