Have you guys seen the new shelves we added to the La Conner shop?
Here is a picture if you haven't?
I really love these two pieces. I think they were the perfect addition that we were looking for to really make our shop our own. While I love to post and tell all of you about the easy DIY projects I do. These two amazing pieces were actually a collaboration between my husband and I.
After being in the space for a few weeks. I really got the chance to feel out the entire layout of our shop. With this knowledge and overall feeling I was able to drew out the idea behind the shelves. I designed the layout that I wanted for the shelves. In what I think it a pretty great and detailed blueprint. In all reality I'm glad my husband is fairly in tuned with my all of the ideas I have.
I am aware that my picture representation of the shelves is a bit all over the place and crazy. My main goal at 3am was to get my idea down on paper mostly so I could sleep, but to also remember my idea for when the morning comes. I had a general idea of what I wanted and what measurements I wanted . So that is what my picture is mainly about.
While my husband was home from work I sat down and explained my really amazing drawing to him. He did give me a funny look at first, but was quick to understand exactly what I wanted. The best part of this project did not happen until my two younger boys walk in and decided to help us with the design concept. They made the wonderful addition of the copper piping replacing the iron pipes, having them be about two feet taller, and connecting them in the middle with more copper piping.
The copper piping that connects the two shelves as originally intended to display jewelry. My daughter however decided that it was the perfect place to display our Alpaca Scarfs. I must say that I agree with her, in that they look perfect in the space.
This is how the unique and wonderful magic so to speak happens at Thavin & Marcob. It is not just one person, it is not just one idea, nor is it just one way. It's about coming together and each of us collaborating to create that something beautiful. I'm sure the store will continue to change many times over the next few weeks. While we decide what works and what doesn't. The one thing that won't change is the magic that happens when we work together. I hope to see you guys in La Conner soon!
Until next week,
Thavin & Marcob is a place where you are celebrated for being you!
