New Playa

Hi, just got a Fender acoustic starter pak for Christmas. Question is How do you all store your guitars, I want it where I will see it and pick it up every day, but keep it safe. I think Im gonna hang it on a wall. I play piano and drums I would like to find some lessons for someone who already can read music, keep time, etc. Suggestions?? Thanks
