It took way more than a coat of paint and a new top (see previous post) , but, well, here's the after:
It's repaired. It's black. It has a bigger (and structurally sound) top.
This is all sheet music from my musical exploits in the SCA. So, it's Medieval stuff, mostly canonical, with a couple of popular love songs of the day (various days); and where there are visible lyrics, they're in Italian and French. Because: nerd.
Plain ol' decoupage, nothing fancy. Homemade medium (craft glue + water, sealed with polyurethane).
And la piece de resistance? Well, I was thinking something like this, but for storage of music books and small musical instruments, instead of plants.
What ended up happening was more of a "fishtank on a table with junk in it."
It just needs some cool decoration. And a more organized method of music storage than "just dump it all in there for now."
Update soon. :)
