Ice Cream Shop Makeover

I occasionally take on interior design projects and for the past few weeks I've been working on renovating the space at Lickity Split, which is a local cafe. My kids have always loved going to the shop for sandwiches and ice cream! The shop is located in a historic 1840's building in New Holland, PA and badly needed an update.

Here's what it looked like before...

We freshened up the space by taking all the decor down and getting the walls, trim and shelving painted. We had the walls painted in Benjamin Moore Classic Gray and the trim and shelving in Benjamin Moore Iced Green.

We created the ice cream cone decor pieces from reclaimed wood, and I love the pop of color that they give to the space! We also created a bar by the front window to create some extra seating.

The floors are original hardwood and beautifully aged, so we didn't do a thing with them. We added stools to the bar from Amazon (shop here) and the bar was made by my dad who is a talented woodworker.

I created these two signs using the shop's menu as inspiration. I highly recommend the shop's Kauffman's Cuban sandwich!

Here's what the back part of the shop looked like before...

And here's what it looks like now! So much brighter!

The project was such a labor of love, and I thoroughly enjoyed working on it! I grew up in the small town of New Holland, so it felt very satisfying to help a local shop look more updated and welcoming!
