After years hating this blank wall but having no ideas to improve it finally I've made this! Calm down! I only used those I didn't like it! I still have my vinyl collection.

If you want to make your own, you just have to glue the disks to the wall. I used a special tape designed to be used with carpets but worked just well and they still stay on the wall.

Still have a bunch of those old record albums and 45s hanging around? Well, here is a fun sculpture you can make for your wall. First get some two by twos and make your self a simple box with two cross members in the center. Now the fun part. With a screwdriver and some screws start placing your albums on the frame. Layer them so you can still read the label. Once you have put the first layer on you can then use liquid silicone or Liquid Nails to put on the next layers.

Now you get to decide if you want them as a record sculpture as is or if you want to paint the whole thing with spray paint in a funky color. You could make the whole thing look like stone and give it texture by spraying with stone spray paint. You could also spray with ceiling texture and paint.

I recently saw where someone cut the center part of the record out that has the paper label on it & used them for coasters.

I saw them folded about 1/3 up and then mounted on a wall to hold mail. It looked really cool. You could even fold them and flip them over, hang them upside down to use as a small shelf.

I turned the records into wall clocks and turned the actual album cover into notebooks. Not sure if I have a pic of the clocks I made, but here are a couple of samples of the Record Album Cover Notebooks I made.

I actually bought a notebook for 10 cents (back to school sales) and revamped the front and back covers with the album covers.
