For some reason I love the look of the backs, yes BACKS, of pianos. Call me crazy. I think they look neat. I used what I had laying around the house to build some legs. Books and wooden candlesticks. But really you could use anything even bar table legs.
I have an obsession for cheese plates, because I love the glass domes. I am always collecting them, and seem to come across them a lot at thrift stores and garage sales. I used a champagne glass and the cheese plate dome to make my flower vases.
What I would really like to do is paint the piano a high gloss white and make a butcher block counter top to fit over the back of the piano, to protect all the inner workings in case anything ever got knocked over. And, put white bar stools with fresh green fabric tops with it, and white curtains. I think that would be so pretty, and DIFFERENT! No doubt.
I won't be painting this piano because I think my Gram would turn over in her grave if I broke out the paint brush and pointed it in her pianos direction! But if I ever come across an old piano in my thrifting adventures, I might just buy it up and try it!
So what do you think of this idea? Am I crazy? : )
