Everytime I mention I sit on my tall kitchen garbage can with a pillow on top to cushion my finely sculpted posterior, my dad is somewhere in this world shaking his head.
It was time. I've been having a lot of joint pains lately - mostly not related to painted but certainly not alleviated by hours on my current throne fit for Oscar the Grouch.
I said I'd only upgrade if my perfect criteria were met, price didn't matter. If it didn't hit every single mark, it wasn't coming in this studio:
-Easily adjustable height
-Locking wheels, because, safety
-Attachment for sh*t I need to grab all the time (okay, didn't even know this was a thing until it was presented as an option)
My dad sent me about 4 links but was firm on the Vyper. And that's where I learned about all the extra add ons. And wow did I ever add onto this sucker. We took bets on how long he'd take to assemble this. I forgot to warn him I got the tray and side kick and locking castors.... he got started at 5, let's just say the garbage stool got another 2.5 hours of life while he was busy putting this baby together.
I never bring anything into the studio that will need replacing soon, so the investment? Totally worth it. My only misgiving was that I didn't customize the logo. I'll come up with something clever for that V I happily sit on now.
If anyone needs a trash can.......
