Antique Sheet Music / Chalkboard Folding Screen

That's right, another aged paper project.  I just can't stop!

I found this antique screen at an estate sale. Love.
I applied the antique sheet music with starch.  I love the natural look of using starch as opposed to decoupage medium which is shiny.  Just dip the paper in a pan of starch and smooth it on.    If it is a table top or another surface that will need to be more protected, then I do top it with decoupage medium.
I also painted this pretty side table with my favorite color -  Valspar Weathered Glass.

The other side of the screen I made a chalkboard.  This would be so awesome with fancy chalkboard art, but as usual, I had to rush to get a picture and head to the antique mall.
I couldn't resist writing a French poem on a small section for a closeup of the flowers. 
Oh and did you notice my antique grain sacks on the stool.  My very first ones.  More projects to come with those.
