More fun with sheet music




I've had so many positive comments on my sheet music cabinet that I decided to try the same technique with this bookshelf. I love how it turned out, old pages give everything such a warm feeling.


I'm selling this piece....as much as I enjoy making over furniture, my house is full! If you are a local reader and interested, email me at brosequilts(at)yahoo.com


Do you have a favorite piece that you've done? I love before and afters, leave a link in the comments so I can see your fave redos!

That turned out GREAT!

I'd be all over that if I lived closer! I really like the use of the old sheet music. A local "home and gift" store has been using it for packing and decorating by putting it through a shredder and using all the little pieces.

Wow! Michelle this is really pretty. I really love the idea of using old sheet music. There is something about it that is just so classic and timeless. Gorgeous!

Thank you for your kind words on my weight loss! Oh yes I was shaking in my shoes posting my before photos. Eeeek! I'm over it now since I do agree it was important to show the difference. I am so grateful to be healthy again and loving life. I really appreciate your support this past year my friend.

Happy Fall! ~Melissa :)

i like your music sheet cabinet, i think you have done a wonderful job restoring it, looks really good in the end, music sheets look very good peeking from behind things and add a touch of jazz too along with storage

Oh that is just awesome!

Bridget said...

Cool idea...been noticing alot with old sheet music as well. I was just in a store last weekend that had decorated one wall with pages from old hymnals...it looked really cool!

Megan said...

I was just playing around with the idea of using sheet music as wallpaper and I love this as a less-commitment alternative. This looks wonderful!

My Casa Bella said...

I love this idea! I'm redoing an old antique child's wardrobe and wanted to do something with the inside back wall and this is a neat idea! HMMMM!!
