Beautiful Instruments

I have always had a thing for musical instruments. When I walk around flea markets and yard sales I keep my eye out for unique and/or beautiful instruments. I want to buy every one I find, but I know it’s not possible. I want to learn to play anything I can get my hands on, but I know I just don’t have the time to do that. I have many instruments in my home that I can’t play, but I found them too beautiful to not display.

I saw an old guitar at the Jockey Lot this weekend that I wish I had brought home with me. It was broken, so I passed it by. When I got home I started second guessing myself for not purchasing it. The beautiful guitar reminded me so much of the epiphone dove pro.

It hand a beautiful hand painted bird image on it, and now I’m thinking of so many ways I could have upcycled that guitar into wall art. I’m going to the Jokey Lot again on Saturday, and this time you can bet I’ll have my eyes open looking for that seller again. I know he’s a regular, so maybe if I’m lucky that old broken guitar will still be there.
