Have you ever wondered what you can do with those old vinyl albums? Even if you are a collector, I am sure you have a few scratched or warped ones that will never sound the same as they did when they were new. Then again, thrift stores and yard sales are practically giving them away, so you don’t even have to disturb your own rockin’ stash for a fun crafting experience.
For my birthday in May, a friend gifted me with calenders that featured sheet music book covers. Even though I have authentic vintage sheet music books, I loved the vibrant colors and pristine graphics of the calender pages.
I had the perfect base for decoupaging a couple of these covers to. An old cupboard door.
After a bit of elbow grease and removal of some of the hardware, I was ready to rock and roll. I couldn’t get the hinges off, and I didn’t want to wait until a son or husband came home, so I decided to leave them attached as embellishment for the “art” piece.
A little paint gave the old surface a much cleaner appearance. I did the entire surface with off white and and then a dry brush of white over the outer frame.Two calender pages fit perfectly inside the frame. I applied several coats of Mod Podge to seal and build up the smooth surface.
A couple of sawtooth hangers were attached to the back for hanging.
