DIY Guitar Decor

2:44 pm



 New year, new room! Is that even a thing?

Well, I've had the same room décor for almost all of 2015 and I thought with a new year coming up I would spice things up in my room. I have plan white walls, although this can look dull and boring its also a blessing in disguise as I can decorate them anyway I want without clashing anything. 

I was cleaning my room out during the winter, and I came across an old acoustic guitar of mine. All the strings were broken and the guitar was looking old and beaten, I thought what could I do with this? I looked on the beautiful Pinterest and bamn, there it was. I came across this idea so I hoped to it and started sawing. 

I used an electric saw and cut around the front of the guitar. Using spare wood I had lying around I measured and cut two small planks and glued them into the guitar to create shelves. I then painted the inside of the guitar white to match my walls. 

I went out to my nearest cheap store and bought christmas lights on sale, in a warm colour. I then went round the guitar covering it in lights and placing lights where I felt necessary.

I went to my local garden centre and purchased a few cactus's to place on my shelves, and I picked up white bird salt and pepper shakers from my pound store. Hey, who could tell they were salt and pepper shakers? 

I absolutely love this idea, I won't lie and say its easy to do because for someone like me who knows NOTHING on saws or DIY gear like that, I had to ask my Grandad for wee bit of help here and there. 

I absolutely love this for when I'm having a cozy evening in my bed doing blogging or a film marathon. 

What do you think?

Love,
