(Ignore the nastiness of my existence...and the hat-- I was painting the ceiling!)
I was going for a shabby chic, simple, calming atmosphere, with interesting, vintage touches.
We painted the ceiling and walls and did an apoxy floor treatment to start.
The shelving came from Ikea, designed by me and assembled by Ryan.
Lighting was tricky. As you know, garages only have 1 light, and a salon needs a lot. I brought in a touch of sparkle with a fun chandelier...and Ryan creatively ran track lighting, spotlights, and lamps, all through out! The end lighting is great! Not harsh neon lighting, but bright and flattering.
I hid the garage door and storage by running floor to ceiling drapes along the south end.
Most of the accessories are either vintage, thrifted, or from TJ Maxx.
I bought the "waiting room" chairs on KSL when they were a nasty brown hue, and re-vamped them. The awesome gold mirror on the closet door was in my mom's room when she was a little girl! I absolutely love it-- As you can tell, I still need to fill my frames... I'm waiting on custom print orders. I also love the wonderful flower detail on the "J" (for Judd). The tin back splash on the sink was a Christmas gift from Ryan. He slaved all night Christmas eve (after I went to bed, and thought he did too) so it would be ready in the morning-- It is a perfect addition, matching the glass door panels and the silver elements!
I hope this was a fun "Before and After" for you to see--
Feel free to let me know if you want to get the first hand experience and get your hair done here!
