On another mom-blog, I saw their violins neatly hung on the wall, safe from small fingers and looking quite beautiful and decorative. Since Curly's violin has been perched precariously on the top of the piano, I decided we needed something similar. I like the look of a "music room" even if it's just a corner of our already-crowded dining room!
Two weeks ago I began searching around on the internet (thank you, Uncle Google) and found some really nice-looking hangers. Today they came in the mail, so Hubby and I set happily to work, drilling pilot holes and installing screws.
We're all pleased with the result. The instruments are out, handy to for daily practice and they provide a nice wall decoration, art and music combined!
