Mod Podge Chord Chart

March 30, 2010

Our spare room/game room/guest room is the home of several resident guitars:  electric, acoustic and even a couple of Rock Band models.  My kids like to play around with them and up until recently, we’ve had a dog eared guitar chord poster thumb tacked to the wall.    

I found this long narrow frame up in the closet.  You can actually see how long it’s been hiding in there.  It was, ahem, a bit dusty.

I  used my new friend, Mod Podge, along with some old sheet music, some scrapbook paper and some chords I printed off the internet to make a slightly better looking chord chart.  DSC_0019  DSC_0017


That Mod Podge is addicting stuff!

  1. My husband is a professional guitarist - I think he would flip if I did something like this in our home! It's a good thing he doesn't read blogs or I would have an immediate project on my hands. ;) It came out great!

  2. My husband too plays guitar. While away once I came back home to find the chair in the middle of the living room and a chord poster tacked to my wall. Well, needless to say this tacky new look did not stay. He would love it if it could... You solved the tacky problem though, a great idea! Joan

  3. This is great, Carolyn! I love this! Seeing this is making me kick myself, though, because I saw a wood cutting board shaped like a guitar at Goodwill this weekend. I picked it up and put it back down. That would be great for a project like this. Maybe I'll shoot back quick and see if they still have it this weekend.

    My son is interested in the guitar and has a few {including my old one from when I was a kid}. What a nice gift I could make adapting your idea to the wood guitar.
