Nearly Done

 I've got one more instrument coming and then the music room is done.  The flowering vines have been added to the pergola.

The curtains are finished and on the windows.

I used Kris's method for making the curtain cord and tassels.  

I added some books to the shelves and a few other horns. And a bust of Beethoven.  I need to do a little rearranging.

I got some old staircase spindles from a spiral staircase kit.  They have pre-drilled holes in the tops to thread the railing through metal loops.  With some corner molding and woodsies and some ends of the wooden fans I made sheet music holders.  I printed sheet music from images I found on the internet.

Once the glue dried I painted them black and then did a wash of dark brown over it.

They need a coat of poly and then they'll be done.

I didn't want the shelves to look too symmetrical so I got an old plastic vase and some of the roses from my stash and made a flower arrangement.

I'm still working on the arrangement of instruments, I have one more coming.  The double bass in the corner needs it's bridge repaired.  But the cello looks nice and the guitar works.

With the sheet music on the shelves and one of the stands I think it looks nice.

I should have put one of the filters on the camera. The lights are very bright and they don't look quite that bright in person.

But once my zither arrives the music room will be done.  I might work on the garden next or maybe I'll go back to the Downtown Loft.

Either way, I'm pleased with how it looks so far.  

I hope you're all safe and healthy and happy.  Have a great week!
