Since Thoracic Outlet Syndrome entered my life a couple years ago, I’ve had to change the way I approach things, so I don’t aggravate the symptoms into a flare up, like I did when I tried to organize my entire office last year. It really was not a good idea to tackle that project alone...and it still isn’t finished! Lol. As someone who is used to always being independent and on the go, I’ve also learned after That experience, that it’s ok to ask for help when my TOS gets in the way of my life & work plans.
Meet my friend, Spencer Liles! He’s helping me refurbish some old acoustic panels I bought from a legendary Atlanta recording studio that closed its doors a couple years ago. Spencer’s gonna be my arms to finally help me bring this vision to fruition, before I had to hit pause on my life a while back in order to calm the chronic inflammation that TOS causes.
Follow my IG Stories as I post our journey through upcycling these panels to spruce up the aesthetics & acoustics of my home recording studio. We’re gonna make them look pretty! 😆 1 panel down & 11 to go! 30 more Yards of fabric are on the way from @joann_stores
& let’s be real ... what DIY project is complete without multiple trips to @homedepot
?! Good thing The Home Depot is down the street!
And seriously...do you think I would even tackle this project without consulting with the Guru of all things recording studio, George Whittam @georgethetech
?! Think again! What better person to consult? That’s what Skype is for!! As a busy, working voiceover talent, actor & singer, I currently have a recording set up that definitely gets the job done, but this acoustic panel upgrade will definitely hold me over until I decide on which sound booth is my best option. The big question is will my 2nd floor studio space be able to handle the weight of a heavy sound booth? Orrrr Maybe the acoustic panel studio upgrade is all I will need. We shall see.
