Shop Playlist // 02

Hi! It is Brent here to share a few tunes that we have been enjoying this month. It is hard to believe that we are already putting October in the rear view mirror. It is time to pick Halloween costumes and schedule holiday plans. Actually, we are procrastinating nailing down both of those items.

So far we know we will be seeing family at some point over the two month holiday season and have successfully determined which costumes we won’t be wearing. But, if there is one thing we do know it is that we will be handing out FULL SIZED candy bars!

Since we don’t have any kids of our own to spoil and we live at the back of the neighborhood we have to put in a little extra effort to develop a stellar reputation with the neighborhood kids. Who knows maybe we will impress the HOA’s kids with our candy bar selection and can avoid getting one of those pesky notices for a few weeks. We are not above bribery.

Don’t worry just because it is October this playlist does not feature any songs by monsters, ghouls or goblins. We didn’t even try to sneak in Thriller. This is another playlist full of songs that Courtney and I enjoy listening to year around and we hope you will too.

Shop Playlist // 01

Happy Saturday! We have a little something different for you today, our very first shop playlist! As I am sure you know, we spend a large portion of our weekends working on home renovation or DIY projects in the house or in our garage/shop. Half of the time we work on projects are the fun times where we are designing, creating, building or installing which requires us channeling creativity and the other times are those monotonous grunt work tasks that are necessary such as cutting, roughing up and staining what feels like a million boards. I’m looking at you reading nook wood wall.

About 95% of the time we work, we have music playing the background. We pretty much rely on it to give us a boost in inspiration as we create or to pump us up and motivate us to get through all the manual labor undertakings.

We are always on the hunt for new music to sing horribly off key to while we work. Brent and I create a playlist in Spotify and then both add tracks to it during the week when we stumbled across new songs that we like or find old songs that bring back a wave of nostalgia. (One of these days I might work an N*SYNC song in just to catch him off guard.) Then, we both enjoy listening to the songs we collect as we work together on our projects during the weekend. Luckily, we have a very similar taste in music so there is no fighting or running to hit the skip button (unless “Bye, Bye, Bye” ever makes the cut then I can guarantee that will happen).

We thought it would be fun to share the music we are playing in our shop each month. Here is what we are currently enjoying:
