This summer I found some great vintage sheet music at a garage sale for a $1.00! I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with it, but I couldn't pass up a deal like this. Being the odd size of paper it is made it difficult to find a place to store it, so it has laid on my work surface. Because of this new found time I have, organizing and decorating my studio has become my focus. I have picked up the sheet music a dozen times, thinking of a new home for it and could not come up with anything. Once again this morning, I picked it up and then an idea hit me, I would make window valances out of them.
My studio is in our sun room, 6 windows without anything but the white wooden blinds. I was instantly giddy!!!
First I started with Velcro strips
I then cut the backs of my paper pads into 2 inch strips
Securing them onto the sticky side of the Velcro strip
This was my base. Next, I started cutting and tearing the sheet music. Realizing right away that I would not have enough sheet music to cover all 6 windows, I incorporated some pages from my vintage dictionary.
