The new retro looking turquoise glittery guitar arrives...

Another field trip, shall we?


Proposed floor plan...

Looks much neater in the floor plan, doesn't it?

It's a really small room when push comes to shove.  I made this little mock-up a few hours ago because at ten last night my kid walked in with yet one more guitar.

Yep, the retro looking turquoise glittery guitar is here and I can see why it appealed to him.  The front looks like metal-flake in the most poetic color imaginable; The Caribbean Sea must look like that... Well, I'm assuming that it does, I wouldn't know because that would involve leaving my house, the sides look like white patent leather...  The metal doohickeys are shiny, shiny silver.

In fact, that guitar looks like every pair of shoes I've wanted since I was five years old.

 I'd show it to you but he and the guitar were only here 45 minutes which is time for what... A hundred....hundred fifty text messages?  One must have let him know a friend was home from college and that was the last I saw of him and the guitar.

It got me shaking about, I mean thinking, about the room again ...not that I can forget exactly 'cause it spills into the hallway...


But I decided to look for the floor plan and even though the furniture's not to scale, it's kinda been helpful.

Here's where I am...

1.  Oh, and I made the bed a bit too big but it's full size so it's not frightfully out of whack.  And I guess this isn't really number one is it? 

2.  He needs a small desk, I'm thinking of sticking it in the closet and surrounding that with a closet organizer?

3.  The guitars need guitar specific holders.  That's as far as I got there except they would go over the long wall by the bed.

4.  Two floating shelves over the dresser for his gaming stuff and I think I'm going to have to give up my flat screen TV.  I was all boo-hooing about it but really if it will get me my hall back I can put on my big girl panties and suck it up.

5.  The wall next to the dresser (across from the bed), I'm thinking floating shelves for his guyphernalia, random doodads and fa la la.  Oh.  And books.   Yeah, forgot those.  Books.  The floor space will remain space for the amps.

6.  As to the two and a half foot super-soaker that I mistakenly thought was garbage...


Not a clue how to fit this in.

I wonder what Eddie Ross would do?

I don't know what Eddie Ross would do but I would install some kind of system with pulleys and ropes so they can float in the room. That would be RAD!

Oh I'm so not mentioning that cause he would think that would be rad too!

he can stick it under the bed and whip it out on unsuspecting guests!
also, I like to use grid paper to make scale models of all my furniture (just rectangles of appropriate size) and a scale model of my rooms with windows and doors placed in. then I get to "see" where all my stuff will go. OCD much? but when you move as much as me it's handy, and the movers hate you less cause you just tack it up on a wall and they can see where to put stuff. (they prolly think I'm crazy tho) and the Desk in the closet is a GREAT idea!

I just got my son those shelves that are leaning against the wall with the built in shelf. (Do you know what I am talking about?) They don't take up much space and they hold a ton of stuff including his TV and stereo. Maybe you could do something like that and hang the guitars on the wall somehow.
