5 cents a can recycle probably paid for a gallon or two of the paint.

Got the equipment all back out there! Roy had the same space with new gear .... I got the same gear with a new space!

How does our back line look?

I bow to your superiority. Bigger space, much, much, much, much, ... <1/2 hour later> ... much more talent. And now lights?!? Nice room, Master. :D

It's not the size of your studio but how you use it. Thanks for the talent remark Roy but you might be a little misguided. Another major draw back to my space ........ open that white door in about three months. It leads to the driveway. As for the lights? Ceiling cans from Lowes attached to the pole from an old lamp. Bought some colored floods and cut up an old heavy duty extension chord. Bought a gang box and four switches and voilet! The help heat the room too! I got about $10 a piece in them so about $50 total but they look cool and give the room a cool vibe.

They aren't fancy but when they are turned on all you see is the colored lights.

Good idea with the lights also. I bet if you shopped used you could rig that light up for just a few bucks!

I bet you could save some bucks if you shoppwd around for some remodel leftovers. What is cool about the lights is that guitars have a lot of shiney parts and pretty finishes that just love those colored lights. All my axes look twice as nice under the lights.

<take 2>

The whole set up looks fantastic.

Says something about different geographic outlooks. I looked at the lights and thought "geez, it'd get pretty sweaty under those".
Hadn't thought about the wall of snow outside. Don't get that in these parts!

What I lack in talent and natural ability, I will have to make up with stubborness.

That's a great idea putting a pool table in there. It looks great.
