I have written about wine racks before. At the time I didn’t realize just how popular rockstar wine racks would be, and I didn’t realize just how fast the available styles change. Here is a new collection of music themed wine racks – a perfect way to store your wine and show your rockstar style!

Though we don’t normally associate the cello with rock n roll, I couldn’t leave enough alone – given the beautiful shape and large storage capacity.

Why do roadies carry so many keys?

In Wayne’s World, Wayne wondered why roadies carry so many keys. The reason is that there is a lot of gear to lock up! The rest of us have gear, instruments, and music studio keys to carry around. Make sure your keys show your rockstar style! Some samples:

You need a place to store your wine bottles anyway, a wine rack is a great way to show your rockstar personality.

Guitar wine bottle holders

6-bottle Electric Guitar wine rack. Though advertised as guitar shape, with 4 thick strings it can be a bass guitar also.

   

Cello wine rack – I like this one because it holds 12 bottles (a whole case)! It also has a beautiful patina. But wait – there’s more! This black cello holds even more!

Motorcycle wine bottle holders

   

Motorcycle boot wine bottle holder (also holds squared whiskey bottles)

Vintage motorcycle wine bottle holder

Dragon Skeleton motorcycle wine bottle holder. Reminds me of the cover of the album Painkiller from Judas Priest

 

 

Piano keyboard wine rack

14-bottle piano keyboard wine rack with 2 glass holder

Single wine bottle holders

Storage is more than a box to put it in

Share thisShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on TumblrEmail this to someoneShare on Google+Share on LinkedIn

Everyone is looking to control their clutter.  I’ve heard there are extreme minimalists that don’t have this problem, but I don’t know any.  (I would think that for an minimalist the clutter problem would actually be worse, but anyway).  In the spirit of controlling clutter and finding new, fun, and different ways to keep the clutter monster under control, my latest organization-crush is lunchboxes.

Fender Amp Tin Lunch Box

Lunch boxes.  Not just for lunch anymore (but still useful for lunch too).

A lunch box is the right size and shape to fit on a shelf, tabletop, or inside a drawer to keep small things together and neat and tidy.  Some places you may not have thought of using a lunchbox to keep small things:

  • Makeup table:  I like a lunchbox inside the drawer of a makeup table for lipstick, makeup sponges, or other small tools.
  • Bedside table: for small things that collect on the bedside table like eyeglasses, keys, coins, etc.
  • Desk: for sticky notes, pens, paperclips, etc.
  • Hobby/craft area: for various small things
  • Music studio: for guitar picks, extra packs of guitar strings, cables, etc.

Aquarius Boombox Tin Lunch Box

Since lunchboxes can close, they keep all these small things out of sight.  This is also an opportunity to have some fun with the lunchbox design and show off more of your personality than a plain desk organizer.

 

Then sometimes, you really need a lunchbox just to hold your lunch. This one looks like a Marshall amp head:

Liberating your domesticated musician from the garage

Share thisShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on TumblrEmail this to someoneShare on Google+Share on LinkedIn

As I mentioned in the welcome post, all of this started with the guitar stand in the living room.   Why the aversion to a guitar stand in the living room?  The guitar stand probably looks like this:

or like this

While these guitar stands are perfectly functional and their ability to fold flat makes them excellent for playing out gigs, they are hardly worthy of your living room aesthetic.

Many domesticated musicians have had their passion banished to the garage, the back of the closet, or under the bed.  No need to banish them when there are choices like:

A sleek modern wall hanger:
D&A Grip White & Chrome with LIFETIME WARRANTY

 

Your roadie lending a hand guitar grip: 
Black Pearl Custom Guitar Hanger Right Hand Model

 

A sophisticated wall display case (lockable): 

Guitar Fender Display Case w/ UV Protection- Lockable
Or a wall display for multiple guitars: 
Guitar Hanger 48″ long

 

It’s time for your domesticated musician to join the rest of the household as a full fledged member.  Instead of that folding guitar stand your rockstar uses for playing out, here are some guitar grips, guitar stands, and other displays worthy of the beloved guitar.

Why a rock star/ music themed room?

Share thisShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on TumblrEmail this to someoneShare on Google+Share on LinkedIn

As I mentioned in my welcome post, for me it all started with the guitar stand in the living room.  I said that initially I thought the guitar stand was not appropriate living room decor.

What’s wrong with a guitar stand in the living room?

Along my journey of accepting then embracing the guitar stand in the living room I realized that guitars are very sculptural and come in a wide variety of beautiful finishes.  This is also true for many other musical instruments – electric guitars, pianos, and drums come to mind but there are countless others.

For someone that plays music it is so obvious to add a personally meaningful, beautiful, sculptural piece (instrument) to your rooms.  I will go so far as to say if you enjoy music but don’t play you can still incorporate a music theme in your rooms. Not everyone is going to be with me on that one, but hear me out.  How many fish or seashell themed bathrooms have you seen in homes of people that don’t own an aquarium?  I posit that it makes more sense for a music lover to have a music themed room than a fish themed bathroom.

So join me on my quest to incorporate beautiful, sculptural music themed pieces into our daily living.  It’s going to be fun!
