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.
