It Takes Time

I've lived in this house for two and a half years now.  Some decorating decisions come easy, some not.  I like everything I've done in my powder room, but there was still so much blankness. Here is the BEFORE look. I already had the framed pictures and yes, it was a bird theme. What should I do on the wall above the toilet? A mirror was no good, since I found the vintage one at a thrift store for over the sink, I didn't need any more mirrors. I started a collection of cuckoo clocks to add to that wall.  But, cuckoo clocks have hanging pendulums. That doesn't work well with a toilet below. You have seen me use some of my vintage music this past Christmas. I also used love songs for Valentine's Day, but didn't post it, evidently.   
 Not only is the music beautiful but the artwork on the title page is extraordinary.  

 This music is printed, but looks handwritten to me. I couldn't find a date on it.
Then the brainstorm hit! I bought 11 x 14 Threshold frames from Target, on sale, mind you. I decided I wanted a tight grid format.  All I had to do was use putty to stick the music to the already included mat board.  Four just wasn't right to me. So, back to Target I went.

 Six is much better, I think.
I think music ties in nicely with the birds.  The cuckoo clocks may still find a spot.  
It remains to be seen.  Time will tell. 

Join me for all of the vintage creativity at Knick of Time Tuesday and Mod Mix Monday.
