Paint and carpet

December 18, 2006

A couple of years ago I was introduced to this small workshop about 30 minutes from where I’m living. It has space for three cars and when a space became vacant about two months ago, I moved in here. Unfortunately this spot of mine looked like a retail store from a Mad Max-movie so I had to start this project with cleaning, painting and renovating it all.

Here’s a picture of what it looked like when I moved in *,
Shop before
Not a very nice place, huh. How can a man even get a car inside this mess? Something must be done to this..

Okay, time to slap on some paint!
Shop before
Yum, don’t you just love the smell of fresh paint. Makes your head all whizzy and your thoughts wander in unexpected directions.

Time for next move, carpet: on!
Shop after
Starting to look like something, huh? Like .. 22 square meters of workspace!

I could easily have kept the space this way, nice and clean, but all this was done with one purpose: to serve Fat Franz! So this charming scene is about to change.. watch out.

* All this work was done in october, 2006.
