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.
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.
