Sheet Music Treasures



I found this primitive dresser  at a shop in Little Switzerland,North Carolina.  I loved it's rustic and simple  look.  I'm a pianist and when I found an old music book and remembered  a similar dresser by Mrs. Mustard Seed, I decided this was the piece to transform.  I love it!  Do you?


I sprayed the hardware with rubbed antique bronze paint.  I sealed the music with a polyurethane and when it soaked in on the edges, I thought I had really messed up.  After it dried I decided it really added to the aged look.  And it's sealed for plenty of use!



On a sheet music roll!  I've had this lamp for a while and it needed to have a shade update. I decided sheet music was a good option.   Now I like the shade better than the lamp! 
This weekend is supposed to be beautiful and fortunately I don't have much scheduled which means a little time for me to catch up on some painting I want to do!  Stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by!

I like the look of the drawers! What a great idea... I've seen candles decoupaged with sheet music and i loved that idea too!

Tnx for linking this up at my party this weekend! :)

Hi, I found your lovely blog via the newbie party. What a fantastic (& original) idea to use sheet music on furniture and a lampshade. Both look lovely. ~Michelle

How did I miss this last week? I love it! Do you print off "sheet music" or do you use old books/pages?
