I’m almost done painting the trailer! April showers have made it a little challenging, but I’m sure you guys will love the finished product. Stay tuned for the juciness of our canned ham!
Remember the time I told you I have an addiction to infomercials, and designed a whole workout room because of it?
What I wanted to buy on the infomercial was $400. *insert eye roll* pfff. Yeah right.
I found a way to build it for around $20.
Maybe **I** should be making infomercials! BUT WAAAAAIT!!!!!!! THERE’S MORE!!!!
I bought 2 closet brackets from Lowes for $6.40 each. And a dowel 2″ in diameter.
I had a spare board laying around in my garage. I painted the dowel and board the same color of gray that I used in the triangle wall (Taupe Tone by Sherwin-Williams).
I wanted to use a board so that I could mount the closet brackets to the board, and secure the boards to studs. With all the stress that would be on the barre during workouts, I wanted to make sure it wouldn’t be ripped off the wall.
Using drywall screws, I secured it to the studs. I painted over the screws so it would blend in a little nicer.
Be very careful when you attach your dowel to your wall brackets. Put your power drill on the slowest setting, and I would highly advise drilling a pilot hole. This wood can split very easily.
I’ve done a few different barre workouts, and this one is by far my favorite. I sweat like a Carl’s Jr model spending an afternoon with Richard Simmons.
It’s definitely a welcome change. I do love running, but this is a fun workout to mix things up.
Evelyn loves exercising with me too. She’s the queen of wiggle-ninety-x. (Infomercial coming soon)
