The piano had to be completely dismantled and reinvented.
The inside comes complete with a small cupboard for storage and a work area.  Also, a hanging bottle/stemware holder.

A new twist on the traditional "piano bar"...this is/was an actual upright piano, great in it's day, I'm sure.  To remove the piano from it's prior home it had to be completely dismantled, but this left me with wonderful pieces of wood to work with and reinvent!

You did a beautiful job on this piano turned bar and the men of the house should be given extra helpings of food to compensate for their hard work. LOL I've never heard of a make over for an upright piano before, so this was a fun post to view.
Thanks for sharing!

retroscavengergirl writes: This project looks great--but make sure a pro handles removing the metal harp inside. Never try to cut a harp with a saw...the harps are under tremendous pressure from the strings and if it is cracked or damaged it could easily act like a giant mousetrap and kill you!!
