So my music room is nearly done. Nearly- it just needed one more little thing. And when I say "little", I really mean "big". Huge.
I relied on my dad mainly for this big of a project (thank you Mom and Dad!). He came on over.
Busted out the drill.
Whadaya think? Hehehe. . . Okay not funny, sorry. That there's the frame. The frame that should be strong enough to "hang your piano on it", as my dad says. Hee hee. Makes me laugh every time.
The frame is for the gigantic MIRROR (say it like a monster truck rally guy: MIRROR). This here mirror is one heavy son of a gun.
*No men were harmed in the hanging of this mirror.*
And Jeff cleaned it for me. Aw. Thanks Jeff. Incidentally it's hard to take pictures with a baby in your hand.
This MIRROR has a story behind it:
It's original home was on the wall of the Celestial Room in the Oquirrh Mountain Temple.
One day, my dad was doing volunteer work over at the temple prior to the dedication. Several guys came out hauling out this massive mirror. My dad said "Hey- where you going with that?" And they explained that a general authority had stopped by and said this mirror wasn't what they were looking for in there.
Apparently it had a cheap, thin, gold looking frame at the time. They explained they were going to break it up and haul it to the dump. And that's when my dad intervened from it's certain death.
And here (a portion of it) is on my wall. Ta Da!
What the heck kind of piano is an ahamay?
You like the new frame?
Hehehe. . . just wait. My dad & Lowe's (where half our paycheck goes to nowadays) will fix that. Just you wait.
There's big plans.
See it finished, here.
