Decorating with Vintage Sheet Music

Sheet music at one time was a part of evening entertainment much like the television is today,it could be found in almost every home. These sheets of music placed upon the piano where more often than not decorated with the soft smiling faces of musicians, famous actors and actresses, wartime patroitism, elaborate and colorful illustrations.

Today stacks of sheet music can be found at flea markets, antique stores and estate sales. You might want to take few moments to look through them and will find their appeal as I have. They are usually only a few dollars and usually something can be found to fit in with any decor.

Most pieces of sheet music will fit in a standard 11x14 inch frame with a little bit of a board. They can also be matted and placed in a larger frame or in collaged into groups. So if you are looking for an inexpensive piece for your wall and to put a little music into life take the time to look through a pile of vintage sheet music- you might just find one that hits the right note !
