I still had another project I wanted to make from some
left over piano parts.
This coat rack is what I came up with.

 Just a reminder of the old piano I had to work with.
Be sure and notice the legs.

Here they are removed.

This is wood from that old piano that was ripped 
and run through the planer.

 I wanted a coat rack for guest to hang there coats
because we didn't have a coat closet at the front door.
This is what I came up with.

Following are pictures of a few different angles.

A close up.
I painted it white, then sanded it a bit
to distress it.

I thought it needed a bench
and I just happened to have one.
I just recovered it in some fabric I already had.
I'm a fabric hoarder in case you didn't know that.

The hooks are iron. I got them at Hobby Lobby.
They of course were 50% off so they only
cost me $2.00 each.
That's a great deal!

Isn't that a pretty piano leg.

It sits at the bottom of the stairs right by the front door.
Very handy!

If you'd like to see more furniture made from that old piano
you can see a piano table here and a piano island here.
Hope you enjoy.

The Lord will indeed give what is good,
and our land will yield its harvest.

Psalm 85:12

  20. Hi Lyn!

    First of all I cannot believe what an AWESOME project this was and how gorgeous it came out! :-) I love it.

    Second of all... I've sent you a couple emails about winning the book on my blog and I'm pretty sure they are not getting to you! Could you email me your mailing address so I can pop this book in the mail? I've got it all ready but the address! So sorry that I haven't been able to reach you - I emailed you right away and then when you left a comment on my blog about it, I realized you hadn't gotten the email, so I wrote again.... possibly it went to your spam or something? Anyway.... please email me your mailing address at: redfeedsack@gmail.com. So excited that you won and I'm anxious to get the book mailed!
