One thing about moving into a space that has been empty for a while (our shop was nothing for around 5 years), it will definitely need some updating and TLC.
One thing about this shop that I really HATE is this hideous air condition (wall unit) sticking out of the middle of the wall. WTheck am I supposed to do with that ugly thing?
Maybe I could throw some mud at it and call it "inspirational art". Although I highly doubt anyone would find it inspirational.
We needed to keep it so it was be accessable in the summer time. After all, there's a fair amount of glass here (ha) and it's going to get hot in this office in the summer. I'll actually probably appreciate this A/C unit a little more come July. In the meantime, It needs to be prettier.
I came up with the idea to make a box and paint it then hang a large print on it. Boom! Done.
However, once I started to paint it .... this happened:
I was liking how the paint was streaky and showing layers of color so... I left it.
We hung it on the wall to just let it percolate a little while and we both ended up liking it.
I guess I'll pretend like it's inspirational art after all. I shall call it "the cool box" (puns intended.
