New Projects for the New Year

It's week two of 2011, and now that new year's resolutions have expired, I am ready to get back in the blogging game and start the new year out on a positive note.  Big plans are in the works for Reenie Rose this year, but in the mean time, I'm keeping busy with a variety of other projects.

This weekend I found myself in Chesterfield, Missouri painting among bottles and bottles of liquor.  Yes, I said liquor.  Good friends of my family have started a new venture in their lives and opened up the Saint Louis Wine Market and Tasting Room.  With all of the wine bars around Chicago, I have yet to be in an establishment that gives me the same feel as I have in this shop.  Maybe it's because the owners are like family to me, but there's something so warm and welcoming that is going to have customers becoming regulars.
Since the wine bar has only been open for about 6 weeks, it is still a work in progress.  I was brought in this weekend to spice things up a bit with my handy painting skills.  Besides adding a few key phrases to the shop, I also took their bathrooms to a new level by painting some faux stonework.  Check out my work and the beautiful space...and if you are in the area, definitely go grab a glass or two of wine.


My mom applied her eye for design by adding the vintage display to the top of The Cellar.

That's a nice looking bathroom.

Happy new year and may 2011 be your best year yet!
