Piano Rolls on ParadeMarch 3rd, 2009 in blog, member junk
Piano rolls! Piano rolls! Who has piano rolls!? When I was very young, I had a babysitter who had a player piano that just mesmerized me. I remember sitting and watching the paper roll through the piano opening for long period of time.
What does one do with vintage piano rolls? Well, you've seen all kinds of brilliant ideas "roll" out of the JunkMarket contributor challenge so far. I've been amazed and astounded as each one was posted. Such creative people here!
Well, I hope you are not disappointed with my approach to this challenge. I am a junk purist at heart. What does that mean? It means I like to maintain the original state of a piece as much as possible. The piano rolls I received were in beautiful condition! Each came tied with a simple beautiful ribbon. Love it! After brainstorming potential projects for a couple weeks, I came down to one conclusion. I just did not have the heart to cut, dismantle, or modify the piano rolls in any way.
My solution...find some creative ways to display these pieces of history in their current condition. I hope you enjoy!
