Studio, Part B - THE WALL

I am so proud of my husband! He worked extremely hard this weekend and managed to survive a very long trip at Menards, work a shift at FedEx, sit through a traffic jam, build a wall, watch the kids during my photo shoot, purchase donuts I actually like, help me carry in a PILE of groceries, and kill a very fast spider with a pretty small stick. :) Oh, and did I mention he built a wall?

It was his first wall and, having done a bit of framing and drywalling myself in the past, I have to say....his wall looks great! Of course, he is a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to his work..... but I digress.

Here is an update to show you how our studio is coming along:

Here is my hubby working hard! (Well, not really. He's actually just posing for the picture. But he was working hard right before this.) :)

I have no idea why this picture is blurry, but just ignore that.

The completed wall:

We still have a bit of spackling left to do. Then we'll spray on the texture and paint and we'll be FINISHED! Yay! Oh, and just for you, Katy, here's a picture of our "new" kitchen...which, by the way, we happen to think is still pretty big.

I rewarded Daniel with one of his favorite treats: Hershey's Special Dark. Mmmm.

I will keep you updated as the wall progresses. :) Also, my backdrops should be arriving later this week, so I'll be sure to post more pictures when I get those all hung up and in place.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Oooo.... that looks cool! And thanks for the special kitchen photo. I would not have been able to visualize that. :)

You couldn't have baked him some cookies or something for all the hard work he did?
