This is from another forum. A granddaughter’s husband repurposed
her grandmothers piano which was beyond repair.

The shelf is just so beautiful.

And now I'm kicking myself for not taking my great grandmother's old piano. It was also beyond repair. I love that shelf.

Yes, very clever and creative.
Yes, me too...We couldn’t keep my guy’s Dad’s piano. We already had a piano
and there was no way we could get his piano down our basement.

Taking the keys and making a shelf like this would have created another
creative piece of memorabilia - and his Dad would have been tickled pink.:yes:

It seems many don't want old large pieces of furniture, don't play or don't have room. We pretty much gave away the father-in-laws baby grand. We used to have a pump organ from an old church but no longer had the room for it a sold it for a song (pun intended).
A lot of new urban homes, be they detached or condos, simply don't have the space anymore. Trying to sell or even give away a traditional dining room suite around here is just about impossible.

A beautiful homage to the days of our ancestors who threw out nothing and instead repaired or re-purposed what they had..., a lesson sorely lacking in today's society.
