Musique Box

I may be turning into a hoarder. 

My husband, Ian,  just shakes his head every time he walks into our garage and sees "My corner."

I keep accumulating things and slowly our guest room in the basement and the garage are filling up with "treasures" or as Ian calls it, "stuff." One little nugget that slipped deep into my corner was a small wooden toolbox looking thing. I needed something "Non-Christmasy" to work on and this was just the ticket.

I painted the box with my homemade mix of blue, black and white chalk paint.

Then I Mod-Podged vintage music sheets on the end caps of the box. I have REALLY gotten some use out of the 2 music books I bought for $1. I made this, and this, and this.

Then, I used carbon paper to transfer the word, "musique" onto the front and painted it with black craft paint.

Then, I scuffed up the edges and waxed the entire thing with ASCP clear and dark wax.

I sure do like it filled with pine cones and I think it is going to  look great in my living room this winter!

Very sweet, I love it! By the way, if you're a hoarder, so am I :)

I have one of these sitting on my (newly painted) dresser. I think it would look super cute done up like this.

I may just have another project in the works for some music sheets...

Thanks for sharing!

I think all of us crafters/artists have some hoarder in us. My husband tells me I am one all the time and he laughs anytime I say I'll clean my "pile" (which is the guest room) and just says he will believe it when it happens...

I love the box, esp. the paint color. And I have a couple of "corners" like yours. My husband calls me a hoarder all the time, lol. I love my "stuff".

They say "Hoarder" like it's a BAD thing!! I'm there, too, but the last time we moved, I was forced (DOWNsized a lot) to was NOT a pretty picture. I loved the tool box- it is way cool!

I LOVE this!!! I'm a sucker for sheet music and mod podge. :o)

I'm a bit of a hoarder too. I think it goes along with being a crafter. ;o)

I love it! Using the music sheets that way is a great idea...I may have to come up with a way to do something similar.
