scrapbooking, framed, using as a background of a frame with a picture in front of it. I'm sure there are some more ideas out there.

I covered a wooden box with sheet music for a friend who is a pianist.

I've framed quite a bit of it, as well as scanned the images for potential decoupage. I'll post the link to the framed stuff below.

I've used sheets of it to wrap small gifts. For example, one of my friend's last name is "King". I sent her a gift wrapped in Roger Miller's "King of the Road". One friend lives in Texas and has been promsising to come home to visit Arkansas for months. I sent her one in "Green Green Grass of Home"! LOL

Lovely table, Mojo... Looks like you don't actually NEED out help in developing projects. :-)

I think your decoupage project, Mojo, is beautiful. Very creative.

My husband is a drummer, and the spare bedroom in the house is his "BAND ROOM". Last year I bought a large box of old sheet music at a estate sale and wall papered one wall in the room. Everyone thinks it's really cool. And it did turn out great.

MoJo, love the table you did and all the ideas other's have given. I was going to say, like Cammie, to wallpaper a wall. I think doing a half bathroom would be great too, so your guests have something to read, or sing, while they go. ;) I've seen maps used that way. Guess they can plan a trip while going then.

I also think decoupaging an instrument case would jazz it up a bit. Even a suitcase that's used for it's normal purpose or stacked and used as a table would look great. You can always add to any of the projects other items to break up an allover pattern of just the music with flowers or cutouts of something that goes with the lyrics. Like a Rose for the Yellow Rose of Texas and a buggle and guys in vintage military uniforms for The Boogie Woogie Buggle Boy by the Andrews Sisters.

Decoupage it to a chair that's used by a child, or adult, to practice their instrument of choice on.

Or what about all the plastic furniture like those put together shelving units, kids chairs and tables? Hey even an outdoor adult table using just the all over music pages as the background and the covers placed as placemates? Of course being used outdoors it would need a few top coats of a marine polyurethane, but I think that would be quite a conversation piece.

I'll stop now incase I'm boring anyone.

Robolady I'm very glad to see the link to your music page! I've been looking for some ideas for our piano room - and I love the story about that old water logged piano being recycled.
