Over the weekend I had a bit of a breakdown. Getting the house to “home” status is taking a lot out of me. It really has only been just over 3 weeks since we moved in, but it feels so much longer than that.
I have to remind myself, if I can get a room just about done each week, the house will be in great shape in no time.
Here is our entryway/formal living room. I’m not a huge fan of the formal living room, it never gets used. So we’re making this into the informal music room. I plan on having plenty of seating for impromptu jam sessions, but I don’t feel the need for a couch or coffee table.
I would like to eventually invest in a piano for me and for this space, but I know that won’t happen right away. I’m mediocre at best, but I sure do love playing. I grew up playing the piano and eventually the organ at church on Sundays. I love busting out the church hymns loud and at double speed. I would also like to eventually invest in an assortment of musical instruments like drums, tamborines, maracas, ukeleles and thumb pianos; but I see those coming in slowly with time.
I’m planning on mounting Chris’s guitars to the walls with their amps below. He talks about collecting more guitars, so I want to keep enough space on the walls for his collection to grow.
I think the biggest struggle I will have with this space is to keep everything looking clean without looking like I pushed everything up against the walls. Any suggestions?
We’ll be having guests over tonight for a small family party, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to make a lot of progress today. I’m pretty sure I’ll have this room just about finished by Friday. Wish me luck!!
