Not me personally but.. something from my past has become a part of my life again.
The first time she entered my life was a post back in 2008.
we had pieces of her left over and hoped one day
we could recycle them into something special once again.
Dennis helps turn my ideas into reality.
As we have been going through all the things we have made over the years
I try and see how they will fit into our new house.
Keeping the things I love
most and using them in a new way.
I knew that I wanted to incorporate my Grandmothers piano into my new beginning.
Taking a break from the remodeling of the house
we often would do a fun project to keep our sanity. So begins the process.
Taking the top piece the side panels and keyboard cover she starts the transformation.
cut down the side panel
figure out the best layout, which originally we were going to use the curved piece the opposite way because it look more like a fancy crown mold then decided we wanted to keep the character of the piano they way it had been made many years ago.
next comes tricky part building filler to back the curved wood so we can nail it together
Glue, nails an sanded down and a fresh coat of stain brought her back
to the beautiful color she used to be.
Her new purpose is the Piano Shelf.
Yes and this is my grandmother Hattie, she made the music happen many years ago!
Even though I have moved in... technically we are still remodeling and living in construction zone.
I hope to get finished product up soon.
