I'm looking for ideas as how to create an old-fashioned looking soap making shop from this addition to our ranch home.

I hope to open in May, and this room is app. 14' x 14' with a corner that is woodstove equipped. Need a hard, burn/stain-proof floor, ceiling fan, good lighting, cheerfully decorated, but to give an old-fashioned feeling in atmosphere. I'll also need counter space and an option for plumbing that would include a sink. I love the idea od using old barn wood or plank boards but don't want it to be drab looking! Any ideas???

    I would go with a nice porcelain tile for the floor, 3/16" grout lines, sanded grout in a darker color and seal it well. the barn wood siding could add a nice touch.

    BTW...I was born in Flint, MI! Lol! I love the mountains too, but The Appalachains took my knees out when I was only 43. Now I go between the flat lands of West, TN and our mini farm in Berkeley Springs. I'll follow your boards...we have a lot in common! :)
