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!
I’m really happy with the way it turned out! Changing the colors of the LED’s is lots of fun too!
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?
