* There wasn’t nearly enough flavor for me so I doubled the Cumin, Chile Powder (though I only used one kind), and Cilantro and added some sea salt and fresh black pepper.

** I made them as muffins and didn’t toast them.  Bake time was 20 minutes.  I used Silk Almond Milk Original Flavor instead of milk and I added some honey to the batter mix

Remaking Home | Music Room

Remaking Home | Blog Post 2 / 5

The “music room” as I call it, or Josh’s office, was the last room I finished.  So, naturally it is the second room I feature 😉  I figure I have to save the studio for last, it is sort of the capstone of the whole ordeal after all!

I puzzled over the music room for months.  When I started the project in October I did my first rearrange of the house which left the music room in a state of disarray.  It was the room that got everything I didn’t know what to do with.  Several rearranges and three different paint jobs later I finally came up with the set up below.

I set out to make the music room a place where Josh could do his work, play keys, play drums, and listen to records.
