Ever since we first showcased her charming Los Feliz home, musician Sara Lov has continued to impress us with the variety of custom DIY projects, all focused on tricking out her home office/studio on a budget. She's back with a speaker customization project, born from a desire to slow down, ditch the iTunes/iPhone playlist, and enjoy the warm analog sounds of vinyl records.
I used birch plywood, plumbing pipe, tiny casters & industrial strength velcro.Who says speaker grill fabrics always have to be black? Sara customized her pair of speakers with a feminine floral print and built custom speaker stands, totally transforming the audio components as a decorative extension of her eclectic and inviting home.
I also created a space to sit and play records. It feels special, and I love that it forces participation. Arts and crafts is another thing that puts me in the moment so here's my latest project...I gave my speakers a makeover and built some stands too.
See how Sara transformed her home audio setup into a personalized corner to help recapture an appreciation for "being more in the moment" at her blog, Lov Your Space.
