Ooh! Our backs...

| | Comments (5)

I think this weekend almost killed us. Both my and Amy's backs are killing us... and our hands... and our arms... and our shoulders... and our knees... pretty much everything but our nose hair hurts.

Friday night we went and picked out paint, got home and primered the walls. Primer on drywall = horrible... the drywall sucks up all of the primer almost instantly, and it takes forever to finish the job...

Saturday morning I threw on another coat of primer, ran to the store to get a few things, then started painting the ceiling. Amy came home in the afternoon and we put on another coat of paint on the ceiling and then called it a night.

Sunday morning, we went to put up our wall color, and we hated it... problem is the paint was non-refundable, so we went back to the store, shelled out another $120, and got a new color... red... and we found out that the red needed a tinted primer, so we primed the walls again (ugh!), went to Pizza Pro for dinner, then threw on a coat of red.

We almost died when we first saw it - it looked purple. But, we soldiered through it... and as the paint was drying we mounted some subwoofers, and I wired them. Of course, then it was time for a test... hehehehe.

Here's a picture of me wiring the subwoofers:


You can see my head poking up from behind the stage...

And here's what it looks like behind the stage:


We fired-em up, and while I wasn't shocked, Amy said it was making her sick to her stomach from the bass (we had it on about "2"), so I guess that's a good thing... Once I get the rest of the cabinet put back together it should be a lot better.

Tomorrow night we'll throw on another coat of paint, and if I have time, I'll finish the stage. Tuesday night will be final wiring (installing the outlets). Wednesday and Thursday = Hang doors. Friday/Saturday = Carpet. Sunday = finish stage/cabinet area.

Chairs should be here tomorrow.


it's looking sweet steve.....
by the way, veri-source laid me off....
hope to see you around soon...we are gettting our PA stuff this week....

I wish you wouldn't work so hard!!!!! We can see the room "finished" on our next trip.

You know you wanted it purple so it could feel homey and look cool like the "purple room" in Watertown.

LOL! The purple room = "teh suxx0r." It's only cool because I've slept in it a few times... :-D

I hope it's all done by the time your family gets there! Enjoy, Jon, Betty & all!
