Wall Art for the Music Room {Part 2}

I finally have my music room at a point where I can show you the rest of it!  As a refresher, you can see the first part of my music room decor here.  It is a DIY treble clef sign.

My Great Grandfather was a composer.  He also taught music theory at BYU along with other classes.  I have always admired him, and he helped to foster a love of music in me.  He passed away when I was 12 years old, but my Great Grandma was around until just this last year.  I have always felt fortunate to have had so many grandparents in my life.  Anyway, when she passed, members of my family were cleaning out her home and came to a box of music from various composers that belonged to my grandfather.  They wondered if I would be interested in having the music.  Of course I said "YES!"  I am so glad that I did.  There are so many great pieces in there.  One of the coolest things I found, though, is this certificate.  I love that my grandfather wrote his name at the top, and that it is written in french.  (Anyone care to translate?)  I think it is the perfect thing for my music room!

Two years ago for Christmas, my mom gave me this beautiful picture that she purchased from Hobby Lobby.  It has been sitting in my closet because I didn't have a way to frame it so it would be affordable.  I had big plans of making my own frame, and even bought the moulding to do it.  Things didn't work out the way I planned, so I turned to my brother in law that makes barn wood frames.  He built this frame for me and had it to me 2 days after I asked for it.  He is awesome.

Last, I got the monogram at Hobby Lobby.  I love the turquoise and the way it looks aged.

All together, I think it goes perfectly in my music room and am so pleased with the way it looks. 

You may or may not have noticed, but there is a sneak peek as to a certain huge project I decided to do.  I will show you more about my board and batten (!) in another post this week.  Oh, and one last thing.  If you are part of my Facebook group, you may have seen a little announcement.  I just wanted to say I am working on getting it put together, and there will be not one, but THREE!!!  Just be excited.

Pin It!

Complete Works for Organ of J.S. Bach annotated and fingered by Marcel Dupre

Eight Preludes and Fugues
Passacaille and Fugue (I'm guessing in c minor)

High school French wasn't a complete waste! Looks like the cover to the collection. I've only polished up one of the fugues, I miss playing crazy organ, maybe I should start practicing more than hymns again.
