Shortened Schedule

Well, never let it be said that I have not made mistakes in my life. For some apparent reason I was under the assumption, that my next semester at GRCC did not begin until September 10th. I was wrong. Classes start on Monday. That's about two weeks earlier than I was thinking, which means all the projects that I put off, pushed aside, or just plain ignored to get a little "me time" are not getting done any time soon. I don't know where, or how, I came up with my incorrect date, but I'm in a bit of a pinch. I have bathroom that is little more than an unfinished closet with a nonworking tub in it, a laundry room that still needs to be painted, and a couple of other things that I wanted to try and get done... Maybe I can get it all done this weekend. Ha. Never going to happen. Looks like it's time to start squeezing the projects in wherever they fit.

Illuminated Headboard 2

Because I know it's not enough to just see some pictures of my latest project, you want to see it in action and hear me talking about it. And since I always try to make my audience happy, here's a little arohenTV action, minus some of the frills. Roll video.

Illuminated Headboard

Illuminated Headboard 1

This Saturday was my birthday, but I still took time this weekend to work on some projects. We painted and spruced up the bedroom for my mother's visit last month. However, there was one thing that didn't get done. We didn't get the headboard up. I took care of that this weekend. This is just a set of eight inexpensive, leather-look tiles, that are designed to be stuck to the wall with double back tape. But, I wasn't about to do that. I'm not going to fix that mess of torn drywall paper and pulled up paint when we decide to change things up. So, I built a frame with a French cleat (my first French cleat project) and mounted the cushions to it, wrapped the LED light strip around the inner frame with some adhesive, and hung it on the wall at the head of the bed. I think it turned out pretty nice for a cheap n' dirty headboard. daytime funtime I have a video of the various colors and effects, but I'll have to add that later. My phone is not cooperating right no

A Couple Days of Art

Well, we're finally done with the summer semester and I'm happy to report that I got all A's this semester. HVA 174 | HVAC Blueprint Reading/ Design | A HVA 246 | Mechanical Codes | A PS 110 | American Government | A Yay me. I know I need to get back to work on the bathroom, but between the mini bust that I started customizing and the idea I had for a 1/6 scale beholder statue... I decided that the bathroom could wait until this weekend. I'm going to take a couple of days to work on my art projects and relax a bit.
