Last year Stephen and I picked up this old piano on craigslist.com for free. Sadly, the piano was broken and beyond repair.
Stephen had the brilliant idea of turning the piano into a desk!
Recently, I repainted it black.
Stephen took my little project a bit further by mounting his Apple display to the front of the piano! And he added color changing LED lighting inside and around the back!
If you want to make a piano desk, search for free broken piano’s on craigslist.com or yard sales. Take out all of the strings and piano keys (keep the piano keys for a future DIY I’ll be posting!). Then decide what color you want to paint it! I first painted the piano grey, which looked really nice when I was using it, but I knew my husband would enjoy it better if it was black. After your paint is dry make sure you spray it with a clear coat of acrylic.
As for mounting the screen, I have no idea how Stephen did that. Perhaps I’ll ask him to guest post sometime to tell us how he did it! Would anyone be interested in that?
