Use your old violin as decor for an antique-styled room or a music-themed room. The violin can act as the focal point of the room's decor, or simply accessorise the room. Old violins can work in a sophisticated room, such as a formal library, or a casual room, such as a child's playroom. The way you choose to display the instrument and the accessories you surround it with will determine the way the room looks and feels as a whole.

  1. 1

    Paint the room in a warm beige tone or deep red for a sophisticated or formal room. Alternatively, paint musical notes or a silhouette of a string quartet on one wall for an informal or music room.

  2. 2

    Hang the violin on a wall with a bracket or use a stand to display it on a shelf, windowsill or table. Alternatively, decorate a violin case and lean the violin inside of it.

  3. 3

    Add other musical accessories around the violin, such as other stringed instruments, the violin sheet music from your favourite song or violin figurines.

  4. 4

    Hang mirrors, pictures or artwork that include musical notes or violins behind the violin, if you choose to stand it up.
