Any musician knows how easy it is to accumulate stacks and stacks of sheet music. I played the piano for many years as a child, and by high school I could barely shut my piano bench because of an accumulation of every song under the stars. If you’re running into this issue and are just one impatient burst from throwing it all from the recycling bin, take a deep breathe and reevaluate; that sheet music might have another life.

Take it a step further by topping the look with a glass to protect the dresser and the sheet music.
There are no guidelines on the way you work your sheet music in your decor. Throw rhyme and reason out the door and decorate your walls with all of your favourite tunes. Contain aged sheets together with fresh ones so you’ve varied shades of neutrals.
