Back in April, I'd posted about my dad giving us his treadmill. Steven gave up space in his beloved Star Wars room for the gigantic thing. Problem is, I didn't like working out on it in there. The room is dark, and all I had to look at was a wall of action figures. Blah. Listening to music was of some help, but I needed visual stimulation.
Steven came up with a great solution, and I'm so grateful to him for it! He bought cheap metal shelves at IKEA and used them to set up our old desktop computer so that I can watch DVDs or online shows while I work out. He turned the taller shelf upside-down and bolted it to the wall. He also cut the legs down so that it wasn't too tall. It's nice having such a handy husband!
The mouse rests easily by the treadmill controls for easy computer usage.
Not only did my husband give up space in his room, but he customized things to make them more pleasant for me. The new setup works beautifully, and I'm now enjoying replaying my collection of Star Trek: Voyager DVDs as I work out!
The universe won't implode or anything, will it, if I watch Star Trek in a room devoted to Star Wars?
