Happy Father's Day 2011 . . . A New Music Room

Today I'm posting pictures from an oldie but a goodie that for some reason I've never posted about.  My husband's Father's Day gift last year was a makeover for his music room.  I wish I had *before* pictures for you, but unfortunately they ended up on some disc that's probably sitting in a landfill by accident.  That, or it is hiding somewhere else in my house.  Anyway, the room is very small, maybe 8 x 10 and this is where he practices for his band's gigs.  The room used to have an old stool, an old coffee table, and everything was just spread out all over the floor.

This is what I came up with.

I took these pictures this morning, so it's been almost a year since he *moved back in*.  As much as I would like to take credit for the beautiful saxophone image on the wall, I can't.  I found it on Etsy.  I can't remember the seller's name but if you search saxophone wall art it may come up if its still available.    

Look ma, there's a new stool!  My goal was to keep as much stuff off of the floor as possible, so we put in shelving (as you can see the top shelf is drooping a little, it needs a little repair), and added little bins for him to keep his various things in.  He has a lot of reeds, papers, and well, junk!

I love this table.  It is small, folds out to a desk, and has a wonderful area to store equipment on the bottom.  This is where I actually wanted him to store his saxophones.  That lasted about a week. He just prefers to keep them on the floor in their cases. 

I put two mirrors in this room directly across from each other to help the room look bigger.  I wanted to jazz them up a bit though.  The red one was actually copper when I started. I spray painted the metal  with glossy red spray paint.  I think it looks a bit more rock and roll this way.  The other mirror is a Hobby Lobby find.  I love how it mimics a door, and the hooks were exactly what we needed - again, trying to keep things off the floor!

All of the other vinyl work is mine.  The names of his favorite bands are here and there across the room.  I used MTC to trace images I found on the internet, generated shadows and walla!  So, he really loves this room and it was undoubtedly a labor of love. 

And last but not least, a lava lamp - a Jimmy Hendrix version no less.  Score!

Thanks for stopping by today!
