From this old piano I'm trying to recreate as many things as possible.
My first creation was a kitchen island made from the decorative front panel on the piano.
To view the island, see the older post.
This time I'm making a table using the old keyboard.
Here's the piano before anything was taken apart.
Here's the piano during the recycling of its parts.
Take a look at this keyboard.
Looks like bad teeth!
After a lot, and I mean a lot of cleaning, scraping, bleaching, and more cleaning
it finally looks like this.
It was missing one key cover. I decided not to replace it.
These were some table legs that my dad had in his shop that we recycled.
I designed the style of the table and my dad made it for me.
We used trees from our property that had been cut and made into boards and old table legs that we recycled as I mentioned before.
Here it is unpainted.
I decided to paint it a high gloss black to complement the piano keys.
Here the decorative trim has been added.
Everything has been painted, and the keyboard has been inserted.
Here it is finished with the glass on top
Looks really good doesn't it.
I had planned on selling it but decided against it because it has a lot of memories and sentimental value to it.
Hope you like it.
Whom do I have in heaven but you?
And I desire nothing on earth but You.
