When Colby is left alone at the house for any period of time I get worried. I just never know what I’m going to come home to. Is there going to be ANOTHER hole in the wall or a staircase ripped out or even electrical wires strewn throughout the house?! You just never know. So last Monday, I had to work but Colby’s company had the day off. I’m not gonna lie, I was a little terrified about what I would come home to during my lunch hour. I was relieved when I found this:
We haven’t been using the closet in the dining room since buying the house. It’s usually full of junk or construction materials or sometimes a chair (my drywall sanding chair used to live in there). We haven’t necessarily fixed up the closet yet, there’s a noticeable hole in the ceiling that Colby made (see…I told you he punches holes in the house) to pull out all the old electrical wiring to the dining room. Anyway, Colby’s guitars used to live in the parlor but during the whole floor refinishing process back here and here, they needed a new home. thus the new guitar rack.
He pieced it together with a shovel/rake rack and covered it with a foam material. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Eventually we’ll finish up the closet in the dining room, it’s just going to be a bit more of a project than we’re ready to tackle at the moment. You see, we have this grand idea of building a bookcase door to fill the space and create a secret closet, kind of like this one from Ana White (originally found here).
It has the potential to be one of the “Wow Factors” in our house. Anyone else drawn to Storage Wars like moths to the light? I can’t stop using Darrel’s “wow factor” phrase. But until that day when we can take the time and build a stellar bookcase closet door, we’ll settle for the simple guitar storage.
Pssst…Big news coming up on Wednesday for our weekly Wedding Wednesday post. You don’t want to miss it! And with that I bid you goodnight.
