We aren’t quite to all the fun finish out yet, but we are getting there! A couple of weeks ago we went to select all the flooring for the studio. We had to make 3 trips back to the flooring store to pick up all the flooring in my husband’s truck. That’s a lot of flooring! We also received our shipment of new dance flooring. We will have Harlequin Allegro dance floors in our largest room, Stagestep Dancestep floors in Studio B, and Stagestep Bravo marley dance floors in Studio A and Studio D. Our dancers are going to love dancing on our new dance floors!
I did have a lot of fun choosing light fixtures. We will have some pretty wall sconces in the hallway. They will dim to create great viewing through our large mirrored windows. I also got to select ceiling fans for the studios and for the patio. Our dancers and teachers are going to love the ceiling fans in the dance rooms, and the parents are going to love the patio fans! I also selected a beautiful chandelier for our front entrance from The Green Door in Leander. It was custom painted, and it is magnificent! You will have to come by to see it when we are open. It’s too beautiful to reveal in a photo.
It’s starting to look a little more like the finished building. We will be painting the columns white and adding dark gray stucco under the canopy. I can’t wait to get our sign made and see our Center Stage logo sitting beautifully above the canopy centered in the light gray area. We are waiting to get our parking lot and patio poured. After that, they will be able to work on the landscaping.
This is the waiting area looking out onto the covered patio.
This is the changing room and front desk area with an office and dance shoe closet in back.
A look at Studio C. Now we just need to add mirrors, barres, ceiling fans, and dance floors. Then we will be able to dance!
I have to send a shout out to my husband and father-in-law for the work they have done and will do to make the studio look beautiful. My husband and nephew did all of the trim work, and my husband and father-in-law will be laying all of the 3 truckloads of flooring plus all the dance floors! I’m sure glad my husband comes from a family who owns a construction business and that he has a degree in construction science. It sure comes in handy!
