Hello D.A Yates

Hello from D.A YATES! And welcome to finally our first official posting. We have even gone to the trouble of putting in pictures! He He.

To begin our blog I though it might be appropriate to show another beginning in our lives, OUR NEW STUDIO. Ok so its not so new now, being 4 months old.

For almost 3 years we operated from a tiny office in our tiny house. We toyed with building a studio under the house which got too complicated and then a ray of light shone on our fortunes and the perfect place came up for lease in our home suburb of Seven Hills. We took the plunge armed with paint brushes, sledge hammers and a lot of faith in our abilities as builders. 2 months later, six levels of lino ripped up, more coats of paint than the Sistine chapel  and new found friends at Bunnings we opened the doors to our lovely studio.

Thanks must be given to Jeff – (Bob) our builder, Staunchy – Electrical magician, Ange – Inspirational Interior Designer and amazing support! Dave – Brother, architrave expert, and general overseer, John – Mickey’s dad, a hidden Picasso and Lila – daughter who bless her cotton socks came and helped out as much as she could and suggested we have pizza at Marco’s every night.

The greatest thanks must go to my lovely husband Mickey. Thank you baby, for having faith in what we do and what I do and for working your butt off and still loving me even when I am a crazy lady. xx

So please enjoy our before and after pictures and feel free to say hi and leave your thoughts.
