New studio! FINALLY!

June 14, 2012

After months of looking… we’ve finally found it! Our very own light-filled art studio, with beautiful old windows, funky yellow linoleum floor, big columns, lots of rooftop and the whole city spreading under our eyes… Just perfect for us. Of course there are some minor issues too, no space is ever completely perfect, but we are pretty much in love. It’s big, it’s old, and there’s so much room to grow and play and make all of our projects come true.

We’ve spent the last week building walls for Ariele’s wood shop and moving our stuff in one car load at a time. We still have so much to do, but we’re making good progress every day! Lo and behold, a few Instagrams from this past week… Go here for more!

The raw space, day one:

Ready to kick ass.

Home Depoting.

Ariele’s crap load of wood, soon to become beautiful tables and headboards!

Everybody knows, black is the new black. SHIZZLES!

Best part of the day? When the sun finally comes down and sets the whole city ablaze, starting with Woodhull Hospital and spreading west over the river to Jersey City.

I mean, this is pretty ridiculous.

I almost can’t take it. It’s almost too much. Almost. But mainly just amazeballs!

Can’t wait to BBQ on that roof!
