Before I show it to you, here's a shot of the shabby chair I drug home from the trash a couple weeks ago and whose seat I ripped off and threw in the trash, which left a gaping hole. Not much good for sitting.
But great for framing up some pretty little yellow lovelies.
By polyurethaning the heck out of it, the chippy paint it had going on was locked in for good so no more of it would come off in the thunderstorms and gullywashers we have been having quite regularly. Add some pretty yellow weeds, sold under the generous name "flowers" in the South of Florida, and this cast off is humming a happy little tune out on my patio. It is literally humming because bees, or maybe just wasps, are having a heyday in there!
So back to the instrument case. Who doesn't love and need an instrument case? It's a staple, right?
Well, no, I don't play an instrument. I'm not musically literate in the least; can't exactly even whistle without sounding flat, but now I'll have a case with which to pack up and carry my musical dreams along with me...
This is just to show you how rusty the handle and clasps were (at the top). The whole thing was filthy and the lining had been ripped out of the inside, leaving behind two stamped dates, the one above on one side and one on the other side that said, August 22, 1969.
So who wants to tell this musical illiterate which instrument this is for? Can you tell it's size from the photos? It's a bit over 2 1/2 feet long, a foot wide and about 6 1/2 inches deep.
And tell me...what would you do with a hardshell instrument case if you didn't have the instrument or any musical ability to pair it with? I'd love to hear if you would find any use for it, and if so what that might be. I'm thinking of lining the inside with old sheet music or some sweet fabric, should the right textile come along. After that, I'm not sure.
What about you? Any ideas?
