February 7, 2012–The grand re-opening of the Silver Thread tasting room is only two months away, and we’re working hard to spruce it up in honor of the first Paul-and-Shannon-produced wines. Our painter, Scott, just finished re-painting the tasting room today. It looks fantastic!
We didn’t stray too far from the original blueish-green. The walls are a medium natural green–brighter and less blue than the old color. Also, we opted to make the ceilings white (they used to be the same color as the walls). White ceilings make it look so much brighter! In the photo above, the ceilings are finished but the walls are in transition from old to new color.
I try not to be swayed by names when choosing paint colors, but it was hard not to be influenced in this case. The light green on the walls is called “Silver Leaf” and the dark green we used behind the tasting bar is called “Painted Turtle.” I guess its not a subliminal message when its written right on the paint sample, right?
Next up– a new tasting bar by local carpenter Fish Woodworks made out of re-claimed bowling alley lanes (I’m not making this up)! Also, we’re getting a custom print of a historical etchting of Silver Thread Falls made for us by Stomping Grounds in Geneva. Stay tuned for more blog posts about our tasting room transformation.
