Goodwill Hunting: Outdoor Music Station

Let me be a little more clear.  I didn't find an outdoor music station whilst thrifting.  I did, however, pick up four baking pans to create my own.  Combined, these pans were only $1.75.  Yes, please.

I chose four different types of pans-a cooling rack, a cake pan, a bunt pan and a sheet pan.  I totally swiped this idea from my brilliant momma.  She threw a little music station together outside of her house when Charley was visiting and I loved it. 

To set up the station, I tied string to the pans and attached them to our deck.  I had to use a hammer and nail to add holes to the cake and sheet pans first so there was a way to attach the string.

Normally our deck looks like this...

But when we play out there I use the storage bin to block the stairs.  So it looks more like this...

And it creates the perfect nook for this...

The second Charley spotted it, she grabbed a drumstick and the banging began.  She loved it.

What toddler doesn't love pots and pans and making lots of noise, right?!

I think the $1.75 thrift shop purchase was a success. Pin It


  1. What a cute idea! Looks like lil C is having a blast!

    1. Definitely a simple and fun activity! I may be enjoying it a bit, too;)

  2. What a great little music area for your daughter. Pinned it to my music board.

    1. Thanks, Dyan! She is really enjoying it!

  3. That's really good idea, she's not only enjoying it but also preparing for next album. :)
