This Vintage Sheet Music Coffee Table is the perfect way to display your love of collecting vintage sheet music for the piano, guitar, or any musical instrument. Vintage Sheet Music is so beautiful, especially when the whit papers ages a little to a soft creamy yellow.
You can make this easy coffee table using your favorite t Vintage Sheet Music. This simple Vintage Sheet Music coffee table would look great in a family room, music room, or even a home office or library.
You can make it for your own home over the weekend. It will also get all of that sheet music off the shelves where it is collecting dust.
To make this Vintage Sheet Music coffee table you will need to spread it out over a couple days, so working over the weekend will probably work best. While you won’t be working on the craft project all day long, you do need to allow for time for materials to dry.
Be sure to buy your glass tabletop first and built your Vintage Sheet Music coffee table to fit it. This will save you a lot of time and money!
To Make a Vintage Sheet Music Coffee Table You Will Need:
4 sheets of plywood or MDF cut to the same size
8 L brackets
Go through all of your Vintage Sheet Music. You can take them to Kinko’s and have them all photo copied in color and black and white so that you do not have to damage the originals. You can also easily resize them into any size you want!
Oversized Vintage Sheet Music would be an awesome contemporary look!
After you get your Vintage Sheet Music copied use scissors or pinking sheers to cut them out.
Now, on to building the coffee table. The first step is to measure your piece of glass tabletop. Everyone will have a different size, so I can only give you tips on how to know how large to make your Vintage Sheet Music Coffee Table.
Make it slightly smaller than the glass tabletop. Now, measure how wide the tabletop is. If you have a circle tabletop, then mark out a square on it with painter’s tape. Measure this to get the dimensions for your tile table base.
Have your 4 pieces of MDF cut to size. A good height for a coffee table is 2.5 feet tall. You can make the square to fit your tabletop.
Now, the first step is to primer the front and back of your sheet of MDF or plywood. Let this dry, and then paint on a coat of paint in any color you wish.
Install L brackets to hold the four pieces together in a square. Install an L bracket at the top and bottom of each corner. The Vintage Sheet Music should be on the outside.
Now, take your decoupage medium and start painting some on the back of a Vintage Sheet Music. Paint some on the coffee table as well. Press the Vintage Sheet Music into place.
Continue this process until you have covered the entire base of the coffee table in Vintage Sheet Music pieces.
The decoupage medium will dry clear; so don’t worry about it going on white.
Once the decoupage has dried you are finished. Stand the Vintage Sheet Music Coffee Table up and place your piece of round or square beveled glass on top.
