This post is for our Design Happens fans with a passion for music. I had so much fun scouring the web for vintage record player decor earlier this week that I had to do a second post. Upcycling everyday items not only ensures that you’ll have one-of-a-kind pieces in your home, but it also makes a pretty extraordinary environmental statement. Music has the power to stir our souls, as does great design. Merge the two, and it’s magical. Crafters and artists are turning horns from old Victrolas, LPs and cassette tapes into super stylish home decor pieces.

What’s your take on music-inspired upcycling? Would you use a victrola horn as a pendant light or display a record morphed into a wall clock?

    I'm all about the light switch plates, the cassette art, the cassette lamp shade and the Victrola horn pendants!

    Dibs on the tiered record cupcake stand, and I'll arm-wrestle Anna for that cassette tape lamp! xD

    This is great. Most music media (CDs, Vinly, etc.) is awful for the environment and to be able to reuse is great. Not to mention reusing in such decorative, awesome way. Love it!

    I'd really like to find a way to display multiple vintage album covers as wall art- Maybe like a frameless collage. With minimal holes in the wall.
