Music is everywhere, and while we aren’t all accomplished musicians, it is an important part of most people’s lives. Music helps express emotions and build memories, and it provides a soundtrack to your life.
But even if you don’t enjoy any kind of music, and have no idea what all of the lines and symbols on sheet music are about, you have to recognize that it works as a graphic pattern, and not just as a functional text to help musicians – classical ones, for the most part – when learning or playing a song.
Sheet music, mostly in its original black and white – or occasionally off-white, even yellowed – form, is used as a pattern in clothing, accessories, stationery and even decorative pieces for the home, whether it be a vase or a tea set. And whether it represents a specific sequence or it was chosen merely for its aesthetic appeal, it always looks beautiful.
In this gallery, you’ll see the full potential of sheet music as a decorative pattern.

Before I stumbled upon this website, I have downloaded some digital music from just a tiny bit of my favorite music (would need about a hundred lamps or more for all of it!) Inherited some lamps which were not my taste, so I’ve started teastained 3 faves and am gonna modge podge the sheets onto 2 drum lampshades and a fabric 5 panel one. Will let you know how it goes….?

Truly no matter if someone doesn’t understand after that its up to other viewers that they will help, so here it occurs.
This makes my heart so happy. My fiancee and I are both musicians and I’d love to incorporate sheet music into our reception. I find so much vintage sheet music at Goodwill, so now I have some ideas.
