Happy Blue Monday Everybody! For all of you who love the color blue,( Is there anyone who doesn’t?) Smiling Sally has a weekly event where the party-goers post their blues and hop to each blog visiting the others. Click on the picture of the bird to get to the party.
I found this music stand at a little shop for 44.00. It is an older piece and was originally a dark color. I thought it was an interesting piece with 3 different shelves, a drawer and a lip on the lid to hold your music up. The lid can also lie flat. I grabbed my can of aqua spray paint and went crazy spraying. After letting the paint set for a bit, I took some rough 60 grade sand paper and rub off some of the paint on the edges. This was a quick and slick transformation and I really like how it turned out. I just put one of my books on the stand because I do not play any music. I guess I could put some old music books on the stand anyway; now I have to look for some! This view shows how the lid props up. Here is a picture I’ve had since my children were little. It had the dated gold frame which I just painted a crisp white and distressed slightly. That helped freshen up the style but now I see a shiny gold trim under the glass framing the picture.(Ugh). There is a good bit of blue in this picture. Thanks for stopping by; I sure love having the company and I will be visiting as many of you as I can as well. Have a wonderfully happy and joyful week!
