and now my table sings!

 I've finally gotten to re-doing this hand-me-down coffee table that sits in our front living was that dated blond wood color in that classic early '90s style that I see re-done all over blogland.

Here it is before. Lovely. I know.

And here it is now!! All dressed up in vintage sheet-music!
 I absolutely love it! I gave it a good coat of primer, followed by
a few coats of Krylon Ivory gloss spray paint (I didn't want it glossy, but I knew I'd be glazing/antiquing so
that would make it have a more satin finish).
Then I carefully selected the sheets of music (which I bought a BIG bag of recently at a garage sale for a steal) I wanted to Mod Podge on the top. I purposely chose
ones with varied tones from light ivory color to a really aged tan color.
I also chose some with titles and words that were pretty and some with just music notes so it would be varied.

some detail of the sheet music...

then I mixed up a grayish/tanish glaze to antique it...

I'm SO glad I got around to doing this! It's
