I was a music major when I started college so I had lots and lots of sheet music on hand.
This was right about the time I discovered Mod Podge, so you can probably guess what happened......
I decoupaged sheet music on every surface I could think of.
My first college apartment looked like a music library had exploded and sheet music had been plastered onto nearly everything in it. (This was also during the height of my leopard print / jungle craze, so it was more like a music library exploded in a jungle).
Anyway, I finally grew out of that phase, but now I suddenly feel like I'm reliving my college days after my little desk project last weekend.
I bought this desk a while back and it's been sitting in my dinning room while I tried to decide what to do with it...... then it hit me! I should revert back to my old ways of Mod Podge and sheet music.
I rolled on Mod Podge (I used to use a paint brush in the past, but I've determined this works much easier) and then started layering on my music and then layered on about 3 coats of Mod Podge on top of that.
After the Mod Podge dried I sanded the edges and corners to make it look a bit worn.
The desk will stay on the wall in my dinning room. The room is small so whenever I use it I just pull over a chair from the table, which isn't often since I normally work with my laptop in the recliner or on the desk in my studio/office.
I threw some random things on it for now, I will probably change out how it's styled regularly like I do everything else in our home. But right now what's on it includes one of my Great-Grandmother's blue heaven platters, one of my new coffee filter flowers and the pen that was used for the guest book at my wedding.
The dinning room is one of the rooms we have completely remodeled and I think it may be officially "finished" for now. I will have full before and after pics of the room next week.
