LP Wall Display Ideas

LPs work as wall displays due to their shape and old-school appeal. If concert posters aren't enough for you, manipulate your favourite LPs to turn your walls into an extension of your love for music. You can display LPs in many different ways to create art and exhibit your favourite albums at the same time.

Baked LP

If the music on an LP jumps out at you, re-create this experience visually with a baked LP. You can turn a flat LP into a work of art on your wall using just a bowl and an oven. Place an LP on top of an oven-safe bowl. Choose an interesting LP colour such as blue or white for a cooler piece of wall art. Turn on your oven and place the bowl and LP inside for a few minutes. The LP will drape over the bowl and take on its shape. Remove the bowl and LP from the oven and let them cool. Hang up your "baked" piece of vinyl for an interesting spin on an LP wall display.

LP Clock

Turn your LP into a clock and watch how much time you spend listening to records. Buy a clock kit from a department store and mount it to the back of a record. Stick the centre and hands of the clock through the middle of the LP. Paint numbers on the outer edge of your LP, hang your clock on the wall and plug it in. Consider choosing a record that relates to the concept of time, such as The Time's "The Time" or R.E.M.'s "Out of Time" to tie in with the theme of your wall display.

Hit Record

Recording artists and studios often hang framed LPs on the wall to mark the release and/or success of a new album. You can do the same and honour your favourite LPs, whether they're platinum records or not. Frame your LP along with a picture of its cover, or hang the actual cover below it. You can also include a card with text featuring the name of the LP, its producer and total units sold. Display these framed LPs and make your walls look like the halls of a hit studio.
