Piano rolls! Piano rolls! Who has piano rolls!? When I was very young, I had a babysitter who had a player piano that just mesmerized me. I remember sitting and watching the paper roll through the piano opening for long periods of time.
What does one do with vintage piano rolls? Well, I am a junk purist at heart. What does that mean? It means I like to maintain the integrity, or the original state, of a piece as much as possible. I was challenged to come up with ideas for two vintage player piano rolls! After brainstorming potential projects for a couple weeks, I came down to one conclusion. I just did not have the heart to cut, dismantle, or modify the piano rolls in any way.
My solution...find some creative ways to display these pieces of history in their current condition. I hope you enjoy!
