The reason for our gold records.
In 2008, on the occasion of our first wedding anniversary, I was looking for a special gift for my wife. That original gift that she would never forget. A gift that would later unleash everything.
I was always in love with the restoration of old useless pots, now called “Vintage”. And one afternoon in an antique shop, among furniture and chairs, I came across several vinyl records. I had before me, attracting my attention more than any other, a particular album. It was the soundtrack to my wife’s favorite movie: Dirty Dancing.
I bought it without hesitation for a second, and on the way back home, I was thinking about how to prepare this gift, how to improve the experience and make that moment truly unforgettable.
What I first thought about was to frame the vinyl record together with the cover, something different, yes, but it did not convince me at all. Until it occurred to me that I could paint it gold, thus creating a unique, decorative, personalized object that you would undoubtedly like.
That painting from the Dirty Dancing album, the one from our first wedding anniversary, was the first gold record that we created, the one that later everyone asked about it and wanted theirs personalized as well, and that of course we still keep with great affection in our house.
