Instead of practicing I did this today.  I had 80 violin bridges and 10 cello bridges just sitting around not earning their keep.  So I put them to work.  Still have some left over cause I ran out of paper clips.  I think you can play the music.kkk-002-1.JPGImage Enlarger

That looks great 🙂 It reminds me of the old pubs that you see in England. I like that toasty warm yellow glow flooding the room. I am setting up a practice room in my house. I always practice an hour every day at home. I live in an apartment, I haven't had any complaints from the neighbors yet and I hope that it remains that way :). I am just starting out so some of the pieces that I play can't always be classified as music. I found that area rugs help in sound proofing the room. I bought a couple ( http://www.surplusfurniture.co.....ea-rugs/1/ ) and I have found that the noise from the room doesn't easily get carried outside. Have you guys ever tried this out?

I live in a house out in the country, so I don't worry about that - much to the dismay of my long suffering husband! LOL

Rugs would help absorb the sound for sure though.
