Music Studio: Sound Treatment

Ok, this is a little bit of change from what I typically blog about, but I just have to share. Mainly because I think it is starting to look awesome and there just isn't a lot of inspiration when you Google the web.

Hubs is doing a little bit (ok, a lot of) sound treating to his basement studio.  You see, he's a musician.  When he comes home from cutting down really big, humongous, scary, I tell him to be careful type of trees every day, he putters away at making music in his man cave.

It was about time that he kicked things up a notch and treated the space.
What did that entail?  Well, for one, he is a research-aholic, so he found that Aurlex would give him a mock up of what it would take to treat his room and what materials it would require.

After a few weeks of working it out, all the material arrived.
To say I was less than thrilled is an understatement...just because the material was ugly, boring, and I can't believe this is what all the fuss was about.

Hubs was right there with me and had all these ideas of what to do to make the material not look so blah.
He has great vision, but I on the other hand, need to see the end result.

After a lot of testing and trial and error, he found the perfect paint to cover the plastic T fusers. It's a coppery brown that does add a bit of space age feel to the room, but I think they look night and day better than the blah white they came in.

Each one did take a whole can of spray paint to cover, but I think it was totally worth it.  So for all you music makers out there, stay tuned...
More to follow on the studio soundproofing.  A month long project with a lot of DIY!
