Yep, more sheet music. I've got a bunch of it and you should expect to see it in all kinds of ways ;)
|I added whole sheets, then added little bits to break up the look|
The sheet music is the actual vintage sheet music, not copies, so the paper is aged naturally. It's also a little bit fragile around the edges, which makes for an interesting edge. Some of the edges didn't want to stay down, and with the varnish on top of the decoupage, it created an even more uneven look...which I totally love!
The top doesn't look mass-produced, it looks aged, it fits in with my music-loving husband and gives us a much needed tabletop and magazine holder - it's perfect for us in other words! Best of all, it was rescued from the landfill and put to use again. Makes me love junking even more.
|Pay no attention to the stacks of paint cans in the background...|
|Ugly cord - haven't hidden it yet and see that little lampshade in the top right? It's just sitting on the bulb; I need to buy a new lampshade and harp for that lamp. Just add it to the list...|
As an addition to this post, we had a new addition to the home recently - our new sectional seen in the pics above. We bought the red sectional in the picture below when we moved in almost 4 years ago. I was fixated on having a comfy recliner and always wanted a red couch. Well, I got both and loved the sectional...for a while.
|I'm being real here - what a mess!|
Now that I knew what would work better in the space, this leather sectional looks and works so much better in the space. It's easy to make mistakes when buying furniture! Live and learn.
|Boy, does this need pillows!|
|(I even got around to hanging some things on the wall!)|
Now the question is what do I do with the mess in back of the couch? That whole area screams 'Dumping Ground'! When I get around to brainstorming a solution, you know I'll be posting!
In the interest of being real...What was I thinking when I posted in my very first post that my home was done? I think it was DEEP DENIAL! Now, looking around, there is so much that can be done to help out my little house and make it perfect for me and my husband. I'm looking forward to making some changes in the near future. This might be next:
