Music Cupboard

It took a while, till this little cupboard was so pretty. It has been standing in our hall for a while, some of my tenants left it there. Dieter, my husband was not pleased with it at all. I throw it away, he said. But I could stop him from that, then after a month: If it is still here tomorrow I will trow it away it is sooo ugly!!

No, no I will paint it white, I promise. So now I realy had to do something or otherwise this little cupboard was lost.
Once I played the guitar, but after I broke my wrist, 6 years ago, I could not play anymore, my left hand could not reach the strings. ( I still can play the piano, Lucky for me)


Now I picked up a few of my guitare note books, ripped them apart and glued them on this cupboard. It took a whole week to complete it.

Than I painted the inside white and finished it off with 5 layers of glaze. And voila a pretty little music cupboard and even Dieter was proud of me. It found its place in my studio and is filled up with all the books I collected the last years.

  2. I love this! I have a musically inclined family, I play the saxophone myself. My saxophone has been in storage for many years because we have been nomadic renters for a while. This makes me want to get it out and play! Awesome idea :)

  3. Lovely! What an elegant piece! We are singers and pianists and rhythm makers at our house, too. We might need to do something similar to my daughter's worn-out dresser.

  4. Cute, I would do something like this to my kitchen cabinets but the rest of my family probably would think it's a bit much: )
