Studio Eye Candy: Recent Progress

We’ve been busy, and as a result, we’ve been lazy bloggers.  Regrettably, this post will be a brief update, as there’s just so much to do!  Bug and I have spent the past few weekends (and many weeknights) working on the studio.  We really wanted to get all the wiring done so that we could run the A/C (it’s in the mid-nineties everyday now).  So, after wrestling with Romex, conduit, and countless little connectors, we finally got all of the outlets re-wired.  Success!  Then, when we went to plug in the A/C, we noticed that the fan was rubbing on its case and we (read: Bug) had to take the whole window unit out of the window, take the case off, and reattach the fan.  Needless to say, I was frustrated.  Ultimately it was nice that we didn’t have to buy a new A/C or pay to have someone come out to fix it.  It works great now, and I’m coming to terms with the fact that much of the progress with an ambitious project like the studio marches on in the two steps forward, one step back fashion.  So it goes.

I’m off to work on countless other things, but I’ll leave you with a few photos of recent developments in the ATX DIY Studio:

One of two new overhead lights – notice the ATX DIY Logo key chain made with Shrinky Dinks.

We put up the first section of pegboard and shelving. The white bar will be used for hanging t-shirts. The little flags will be used for looking cute.

Our new studio mascot: Monty, the Bull. A longtime companion of Bug’s that he acquired in Montana, reminding us all that if you Do It Yourself, you are no wimp!
