Getting Some Exposure...

This old building of ours begged to be rid of its many layers on the walls, and we listened! After ripping the top layer of painted plywood off, we slowly but surely started picking away at the plaster that covered the entire area of the downstairs' walls. 

BEFORE PIC: Lovely plywood that covered those beautiful hidden walls.

After a day's work, the ladies got the bottom half of one side off. It was beautiful! 

We, however, were not.
Plaster dust is horrible and by the end of the day, there was plaster dust all over us, our cars, our homes, and in places we didn't even know existed. But, the work must continue!

The boys finished off the rest of the plaster and then the detail work began. Every inch of those walls had to be scrubbed with a wire brush to remove the remaining plaster and to clean the bricks off. You can see in the picture below that it was well worth it. We had scrubbed the bottom half and boy, did those red bricks shine!

Jessica finally wised up and bought a heavy duty mask, because that dust is no joke!!

Lee hard at work, making that plaster fly!

The things left to do for the brick are to coat the walls in a protective layer to shore the brick up and to decide what to do in the spaces in the brick that were found and voila...another task complete!

As you can see below, we have already had "customers" taking advantage of our beautiful canvas for photographs. This was a singing group called Earmark Trio that was doing a photoshoot downtown one Sunday when we were there. They took a few shots inside. We have also had another booked photoshoot for someone else that wanted an exposed brick, unfinished look and it worked out great for them. So, pass the word...we are not only good for events, but photo shoots as well!

Thanks for visiting and checking us out! We are getting even more exposure in VIP Jackson Magazine. Stay tuned for that update!
