Piano Pillage

I was so excited when I got home today and found that my husband had started dismantling our piano. We received the above piano for free about 4 years ago and it served us well, but unfortunately the 100+ year old piano could no longer be tuned. We had been hunting for a perfect replacement for about a year and a half and finally settled on one over the holidays. The new “old” piano was recommended to us by our piano tuner. The sound board and “body” are  in great shape, but we decided to replace all of the keys, as many were chipped. Our “new” piano also fits in well with our character 1921 home (even better than the first one) and it’s now in tip-top shape. 

As a result, we have had two pianos in our dining room for the past few weeks.  While I was at work today, my husband began the daunting process of taking it apart piece by piece. Why you might ask? Well, obviously it is of no use musically to anyone, as it can no longer be tuned and it is several hundred dollars to have a piano moved. Besides that……one of my greatest passions is repurposing the old! I was so excited when I came home to find my dining room scattered with piano parts. I have a few ideas, but no definite plans. However, you can bet that I will be sharing some piano projects over the next few months. The only down side to missing out on the dismantling is that I think the process would have got my brain going and perhaps even sparked some creativity. Instead, I will have to spend some time looking over the parts carefully and giving my brain some time to reflect on each and every part. I can’t wait to see what the pieces of this old piano might become. I’ll keep you posted ~ literally.
