Less Doing, More Hiring Out

My hand is healing just fine after the drill attach a few days ago. It’s still sore, and on the surface, there are only a few small scrapes and a very small amount of swelling. It feels like I have bone bruises on my knuckles, but other than that, everything’s fine. I did meet with the contractor yesterday, but I haven’t gotten a quote from him yet. He said it might be a couple of days, so I’m waiting patiently for that. Or trying. ?? “Patient” isn’t re...


Throwing In The Towel (With My Aching, Swollen Hand)

Well, I’m done with the electrical work in my studio. Let me clarify. It’s not finished, but I am. I’m calling in the pros to finish it up for me. And it’s not because I don’t know how to do it, or I feel like it’s above my head. It’s because I injured myself yesterday in a way that really scared me. I could probably count on one hand the number of times in my DIY life that I’ve had a power tool accident that really scared me and injured me, but t...


Electrical Wiring Basics Part 2 Wiring A Circuit

Last year, I wrote a post about the first steps in how to wire a room, including info on circuit breaker panels, what a circuit is, and all of those basics. If you missed that post, or want to refresh your memory, you can find that here… Wiring The Studio, Part 1 (Electrical Basics Circuit Breaker Panels, Circuits, and More) This isn’t really exciting stuff, but I know many of you were interested in learning the basics. And even if you’re not looking to rewire your house, I ...


Happiness IsColor

I don’t have any studio progress to share just yet, but I’ve been taking a look back at what I’ve accomplished so far on this house, and I wanted to give you a mini “at a glance” house tour. Ever since the beginning of the year (and since I did my blog redesign), I’ve been trying to get things a little more organized around my corner of the internet. And one thing I’ve been trying to get updated is my home tour page. Y’all, I can’t even tell...


Studio Cabinet Color Options

I’ve been working on the electrical stuff in the studio, which isn’t pretty, but it’s definitely necessary. So while I’m working on the non-pretty stuff, I’ve been dreaming of what the studio will look like when it’s actually finished. I’ve been envisioning green cabinets, which I shared the other day. I knew the green paint colors in those inspiration pics weren’t exactly what I’d need to go with my wallpaper, but I figured I could pick a g...


A Clean Start

The studio is cleaned out and ready for work to begin! I can just envision my office area over on the left, and my long work table under the windows on the right. It’s going to be amazing! (I’ll put a link to the post with my plan at the end of this post in case you missed it.) Just a few days ago, it looked like this… I spent a couple of hours tackling the mess by myself last week, and then I had a few days where life got in the way, and I didn’t have any time to dedica...
