I've started quite a few projects in the past few weeks, and I'm planning on using this week to finish them all up! After a fun and busy Summer, it's time to focus on getting the house in order for Fall, especially since I will be teaching piano again from our home. So, most of the projects are geared towards the music room!
First off, Josh and I found this wonderful specimen at a garage sale last weekend. Isn's she a beaut?
Actually, using my supreme detective skills (a la Hercule Poirot), I have deduced that this was once used in a clubhouse of some sort. Why? Because someone scratched in the surface "Boys Rule" and "No Girls Allowed." Awesome.
Well, I couldn't really have that kind of propaganda in the house, considering that I am in fact a girl, so I sanded it down and gave it a coat of primer, 2 coats of a lovely off-white shade, and a protective polyurethane coat.
This bookshelf fits the room perfectly! Originally, I was going to buy something from IKEA for this space, but really, this bookshelf was only $5 (plus $50 for materials I will be reusing on other pieces). And, it's solid wood!
The bottom shelf fits the boxes I store sheet music in perfectly. It's so nice to finally have a little storage in that space!
Are you curious about what other projects I am working on this week? Well, here's my list (so far):
- Paint bookshelf #1 (done!)
- Paint bookshelf #2
- Finish curtains (yes, I started this project 2 whole months ago...)
- Organize and clean music room
- Prettify music room using things I already have
- Finish wooden tray (I found an awesome wooden tray at Goodwill that needs a makeover!)
