I am going to be adding a strip of glass along the top of the keys as a serving area
AS a bar
as an entertainment centre. Check out those snazzy books!
The - Oh dear Lordy lord what have I gotten my self into look!
removing the veneer. Crud of a job, but I DID discover a super easy way to peel it off like *hot butta*
The guts - AND I LOVE THEM! They will be incorporated into another piece. No worries!

What a project to untertake! I know why they are so heavy now! The soundboard itself is cast iron and weighs about 300 pounds. But it will all be made into other projects! No problemo there! I do so love this piece! With all the renos at home, I am almost thinking it just needs to come home instead of the sales floor lol! Stay tuned for many projects to come using the tid bits salvaged from this baby!

CharlieLou writes: PS- Love the bar idea too- we pondered on that one too until were lucky enough to have the electronic keyboard fit! Would love to hear your ideas on what to do with all the extra parts! :)

CharlieLou writes: I took apart an old upright piano too, and you're right- the harp (cast iron piece) is heavier than ?!?! My plan with the harp is to have my husband build a wooden frame around it and use it as a focal piece in the garden. I haven't done anything with the felt hammers and keys yet- but envision creating some sort of art piece, maybe a funky sunburst.

The piano itself I am using as a PIANO. My genius husband figured out how to fit my electronic keyboard into the space where the original key bed was - all the cords are hidden nicely behind the baseboard of the piano--it looks fantastic!! Posted: 8:19 am on April 28th
gadgetsponge writes: Definitely like the liquor bar use! Totally rockin' transformation. Beat-up black was definitely the perfect color choice. I took apart a piano a while back it you're right -- it's given me sooo many pieces to work with. I've still got half of it laying around the garage here and there. Your design is tops though -- as always Jasmin! Posted: 2:33 pm on April 27th

GypsyBarn writes: Thank you! I love all things large and in charge! HA! I really really really want to keep this one - in case I didnt make that obvious - however there are lots of these around here that people are just dying to get rid of! So, I guess for future home projects - I can add this to my list! Posted: 7:58 am on April 24th
