We are slowly removing the evidence that our storefront was once a purple-and-glitter womb of wacky architecture. One of the things we have been working on are the HVAC registers and returns.
Today Megan installed a new cold-air return that she had made by Thane Lorbach, a local laser shop. The original grille was beat up and had been painted many colors. The new grille shows off 121 dividers, each inside a circle.
The grille is made from plywood, which Megan spray painted and then hung. I know most visitors won’t see it immediately, but I think it’s a huge upgrade.

Like it, always fun to personalize.
Wow. I never would have thought of such a thing.
Very cool. It’s the small details that make all the difference.
That’s spectacular. Well done, y’all.
Can I ask how much the laser shop cost? I am in need of a couple new register covers and this is a great idea.
I don’t know yet! (But he’s worth it.) However, I do know you’ll save $$ if you can give the shop a vector file.
That’s really Kool!!!
That’s one way to register a trademark. Sorry, I’m a dad.
Did you take a before picture that you can post?
She has really good taste (& talent),
That’s a really good design and your brand will now penetrate the subconscious of any visitor. Clever. Sinister but clever.
I’m partial to the V8 emblems.

Very nicely done…love the design.
And the new grill reinforces it’s your place
Thane is a great guy. He’s done some work for me.
it’s the little dividers in life that mark the difference.
Okay! That’s pretty cool!
Bravo. Just smashing.
And I see a design prototype for the grille on the Jefferson bookcase.
Like the grille!
That is super cool! I love those types of details that aren’t noticeable at first.
Looking forward to seeing it in September!
Really fits the space. Big upgrade.
How elegant! Very sophisticated solution.
You should make the CAD file or what its called available, at $5.00 a pop. Appropriate for you to capitalize on the idea, IMO.
