On to the project...well the piano is from the 80's and needed some pizazz. The easiest thing to do was to change out the worn fabric on the bench. I found some beautiful fabric on http://www.babybedding.com/ and simply stapled it onto the seat. Very happy with it, and yes, find myself staring at it pretty regularly. Now to get this thing tuned so it can stop sounding like I'm playing in a saloon. Enjoy!
|BEFORE: the piano is in beautiful condition (minus the seat)|
|thankfully discovered that after removing a few screws, the cushion comes out. easy easy!|
|cut and ironed the fabric, lots of cute fabric designs on this site|
|simply used a staple gun to secure the fabric on the back of the cushion|
|and ta-da!! my new beautiful piano bench!|
|had a hard time stopping taking pictures of it|
Also have to point out the beautiful dove that my friend, Brandy, made for me. I'll eventually be doing some kind of collage with photos above the piano. I was given the below pictures of my uncle playing the piano and little me playing an old piano. This will definitely be on/above the piano. <3
Thankful for the lovely gift of this special piano...it will be used and appreciated immensely.
More DIY projects and photos to come!
