The story of how Burst Photo Booths came to be, from purchasing the trailers to the nitty gritty of getting them on the road.

Some Before & Afters

Everyone loves a little Before & After series, right? It's the magical moment between "wow, that's ugly. What will they do?!?" to "Boom! Done! Check it out!" Unfortunately for the worker bee, there are quite a bit of steps in the middle there, in the "to." 

We started the project in April 2017. It's now August 2017 and we've got one photo booth just about ready to roll! Blanche has been a trouper, mostly cosmetic fixes, a few skilsaw projects, a few scraping - nooooo A LOT of scraping projects - and lots of painting. 

Enjoy!

 AFTER: Scrape scrape scrape, stain stain stain, TA DA! We liked the look of the wood underlayment so we just stained that and will use it as is for now.
