    Jesus! Never in my life would I think Herbie would be the worst sounding one on that stage.

    It’s like he murdered this song with the Casio my sister has in her closet. I’ve seriously heard better sounds coming out of a Sega Genesis.

    Also in the first shot of him, it looks like he’s playing bare chested, until the camera moves in! Not that he shouldn’t of he wanted to!:oops:

    I recently also made repairs in my flat and decided to glue photo wallpaper on the wall in the bedroom. I wanted a unique design that I found on the expanses of this site, https://masterbundles.com/best-figma-fonts/ . There is a large selection and I chose for myself another one in the living room because it is a very good option for large flats.

    Unfortunately Storm Arwen took our back fence down and also peeled the corrugated metal roof of with wind speeds of 75 mph!

    I’m now in clear up mode and will be building a new fence soon. All 23 metres (75 feet) of it.

    Roofing materials arrive tomorrow and the roofer on Friday (hopefully). Fingers crossed please forum brethren.

    If you look carefully at the picture you will see the missing metal flashings around the edge of the roof!

    I was inside practicing guitar as it peeled away. My wife “Alexa’d” me, telling me that the roof was coming off. My reply:

    “I know, I’m in here!!”

    I didn’t know my playing could still blow the roof off somewhere!!;)

    Thanks for this.

    I’m still considering decor at the moment. It’s white and a blank canvas.

    Doesn’t appear so. Thanks bro.

    You’re all good and everyone is invited over to toast marshmallows. Just bring a hammer and a shovel!;)

    Just caught up on this fantastic thread. Wow! Just sorry that you have to do an outdoor cleanup/restoration before you could get more done on yer man/music-cave, but the fence will be redone fair soon I reckon. Every step appears to be very nicely done so congrats on your labors. Sure makes me think of doing something in the basement to free up that back bedroom come music room now...

    As promised, typical wall treatment at my house.
    The library has each wall painted a different colour and art drawn on the floor.
    I just printed photos I liked and hung them.

    close ups of some of the garden flowers

    I was too lazy to decide on a ceiling, so used the rafters as modern index prints (surely some of you spent time in a developing room).

    Doors deserve art too. The paint is pretty permanent, the photos less so.

    and what better way to hide walls I haven't gotten around to finishing yet.

    Thanks very much.

    Go for it, best thing I did. We have a dedicated practice room for the band now.

    Thanks MW.

    Thanks Howie.

    And “Storm Front” by Billy Joel.

    Thanks for sharing Peter.

    Since our house move of almost a year, we have hung only a few of our pictures. I have some of my Dad’s art, like this which I may use -

    Always great to have the ancestors around. There is comfort in the air.
