Tejano is undergoing its transformation to El Corazon de Tejas, which is expected to open next week. Interior designer Ann Spicer has come up with a lovely new color scheme and pared-down decor that includes a custom 12-foot-by-8-foot mural by artist Peggy Jones. It’s going to look great — fresh and brand new. But I had to ask: What happened to all that kitschy stuff that decorated the old Tejano?
Turns out, it all was put up for sale on Craigslist. A regular customer bought the velvet painting that used to be in the bar, for $350.
All that’s left is this carved wooden eagle, which is for sale at $1,000.
If it doesn’t sell, says managing partner John Cuellar, Jones has plans to rework it so it can be used in the new restaurant’s decor.
