What magic you have done. The music wall is much different than I envisaged it, fortunately for you. I'm not much of a decorator. It's great! You've turned that place into a hall of light.

Oh, that's cool - the one from the kitchen pass-through shows how the curtains look like the wall! That was deliberate?

Planning on covering it with varnish?

See Paper House in Rockport - those are rolls of headline newspapers!

Hi Lilylady,

1951.

Yes, planning on covering with varnish or some sort of poly once it's done.

Your wall look great ! Even though a few of the sheets are almost too nice to glue to the wall. Too late smile If you still have some nice one left you should almost get some 9 x 12 music sheet protectors to store them.

If you keep adding more sheets I hope you will post more photos here.

Thanks everyone.

I know some of the pieces look like they should be preserved, but preserved for what?

I could stash them away in plastic folders where nobody will ever see them.
But I'd rather have them splashed across the wall where everyone who enters looks at them.

We aren't quite done yet, but it's close.

There's some other music that has sentimental value and will probably end up under glass in picture frames so it can still be displayed, but also preserved.

Hello Frank,

I just came across this posting. Are you still looking for old sheet music?

I have an apple box here FULL of old original compositions on 11 X 18 paper, lithographed, from the early part of the last century.

Also there is a stack of hit parade stuff from the 30’s 40’s 50’s. Here have a look............left click on the first photo to enlarge......

Now I can put all of this in a box and ship it to you but the weight is going to add up fast...I mean the whole box is more than 50lbs.

Unfortunately I don’t have any sheet music from Tarkus, Trilogy, or Pictures at an Exhibition for you.

Hi Dan,

Yes, still interested thanks.

We've pretty well finished the first wall, but now I'd like
to tackle some others.

Let's talk after I get back from NAMM next week. We can work out the shipping
details so you aren't absorbing the costs to ship that much from Canada to the U.S.

Best,

Frank B.

You could be right. This box has been sitting here for more that 10 years now....I can't find anyone in this local area that sells antique sheet music.
Been wondering what to do with this......
There is even a copy of The Etude music magazine from 1929 I just came across.....
