everyone is always impressed by my record player because it looks old-timey, but really i got it at linens n' things for like 60% off during its going-out-of-business sale. i am not trying to fool anyone. i really just needed a vehicle to play my mantovani film encore records! come over sometime and we'll listen to them.
anyway, i've been kind of crafty lately (more on that later) and i decided to decoupage the inside of the player with fancy italian, floral paper from new york central art supply—a wonderful shop suggestion from ben's mom.
a good rule to remember for a crafty home: things can always be better! i will paint it peach within the week.
