My Record Wall

11.17.2012


The other day I went to the thrift store. As I usually do, I head to the back to see if I could find the record player of my dreams. This never happens so I continue to look through the books. They always have records there but I never buy them because I currently don't have a record player. While I am currently waiting to inherit my grandfathers, I have become quite impatient. I remind my boyfriend every time we pass by the record player at Target that it needs to be mine very soon. Anyway, that night, the records made me stop. I have plenty of blank walls to fill and why not fill it with music? Mike loves music, I love music & our wall needs some character. Why not? Thus, behold, the creation of a record wall. Each record was 65 cents each. I tried to get ones I knew but I really also wanted ones with color and spunk. I wasn't sure whether I was going to put these above my bed or in the living room, which probably explains why I got Klymaxx and Body Slam. Ha! The best part of these records is that they consist of disco and 80's pop which describes me perfectly. Although, my favorite record is the Heavy D single (the album with the record player on the front). 

I'm so happy I did this. I was born a naturally creative and unique person and the past few years, as you know, that disappeared. I stuck with this idea and I'm very proud of it. Sticky tack is currently holding them up so I hope they don't fall but I wanted to test their placement. I bought double sided mounting tape but I kind of want to find a better alternative, as I don't want to ruin the sleeves themselves. Anyone have any ideas on that one?

Love it! Definitely have to try something like that.

By the way, from one broke mother to another - I think you're pretty damn cool.

Thank you! I'm pretty fond of the color scheme myself and records on the wall gives me hope for a record player in the future :)

We had a record wall once! It was amazing! Now they're packed away in a box somewhere from the millions of moves since then.
