Jouvence Music Pedestal Designed By Sandra Foster by 


444 VIEWS AUG 25, 2013 – THANKS!

It was such a joy to create this piece and very nostalgic since I was working with a sheet music cover that is approximately 100 years old. Let me share with you first where the Jouvence music cover came from.
Years ago we inherited several boxes of sheet music which range from 75 to 100 years old. Neither hubby or I play any sort of musical instruments. We tried selling it in a garage sale and ended up with most of it. So I decided to get creative with it. I carefully cut out this cover and attached it to a wooden round surface which I added several sealer coats. Added trim which I randomly strip painted and punched holes on each scallop. Adhered to a section of a spindle that I painted black and sanded edges to keep with the vintage feel. As a photo finishing touch I used a texture blend to give it a further antique feel. This would look lovely on a piano don’t you think!

    Very creative work with a most pleasing result! I am not surprised that you were unable to sell most of the old sheet music in a garage sale – a case of pearls before swine, I’m afraid! A pity you did not try E-bay or Amazon! There is bound to be someone out there with the talent to play it and the love of antique things to value it. Just a question of uniting buyer and seller. If you have any left, you might like to consider this option.

  • Thanks for stopping by with such a kind and helpful comment.
