Tried & True Renovations in Mendham, NJ

New Dressing Rooms


Scope of Work: Interior Painting, Interior Carpentry

Location: Mendham, NJ 07945

Timeline: 1 1/2 weeks

Monk’s was called to makeover the Tried & True consignment shop in Mendham, NJ. The location was previously a pet supply store. It was in good condition but not suited as a clothing shop. The new owner wanted to brighten the space with lighter paint. Carpentry work was needed for a boutique feel and to create dressing rooms and displays.

Once the crew arrived we covered the floors to protect them when we removed the drop ceiling. New ceiling tiles were added once all the old tiles were removed.

The walls were prepped for new paint by filling in holes with spackle for a smooth, seamless surface before applying a fresh coat of paint.

Our carpenters built custom shelving for the walls and hung clothing racks. This allowed the shop’s clothing and handbags to be neatly displayed.

The shop owner wanted to add dressing rooms in the back of the store. We built three rooms to allow customers to try things on before purchasing.

Once the dressing rooms were completely built we primed the wood and applied two coats of stain. Monk’s painters applied the colors that were chosen for the retail space, a canary yellow and a burnt orange accent wall in the back wall of the shop.

Our carpenters also created a mannequin stage by the front windows for displaying items.

After a week and a half, everything came together for the Tried & True shop with new paint, dressing rooms, window display, and shelving. Best of luck with your new store!
