Since there is still lots of sheet music on hand, I figured I'd make another display/cubby/tray/shelf thingee as they turned out nicely in white and black. These little wood shelves are in every thrift shop -when you see the after, bet you won't pass them up next time!
|For you photo skimmers - here's a little close-up luv :)|
|Look past the country hearts people!|
This next step is probably the hardest part of the whole project...and I'm sure I'm making it harder than it needs to be, but this is the way I think it looks best:
Take an individual page of sheet music and line it up within each divided cubby.
|oops, that second from left might be a little off...|
Then mod podge the individual squares down.
And hope that you lined it all up properly. I do it this way to get the most music displayed; it would be easier if I didn't care so much to show the prettiest design, but it just wouldn't look right to me.
I add handles on the ends to make it into a tray or just for decoration...this package somehow was missing two screws :( I hate that, but seriously who checks to make sure there are enough screws in the individual handle packages? (Me from now on, that's who...this has happened to me more than once!)
Screw and glue the backing onto the shelf, add some cork backing and then decorate!
|Making sure the glue has good contact! Oh, and that Mythic paint can? It's a clue to a big project going down...|
|Some cork on the bottom to project surfaces.|
|Look who showed up - Hootie!|
And there it is - isn't it purty? Didn't I tell ya? You'll think twice before you snub that homemade-lookin', country-heart painted, bare-wood shelf next time you're cruising the thrift aisles! On second thought, leave them...more for me :)
