Now I know by reading the title you were like "what?" My mom had an opportunity to raid a barn full of old pianos (the guy used to repair them) She was able to rescue some very nice caving on the fronts before they were destroyed (I know, it makes me cry everytime I think about it too). I turned this front into a coat rack by screwing four hooks into it.



Now I have a nice coat rack for my office. Smiley

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Great find and great save/reuse!  My dad had a hobby of rebuilding player pianos so I've seen some pianos in disrepair and let me tell you keeping them in a barn is a quick way to ruin them.  So sad.

When the repair guy passed away they were going to burn them!  Cry What a waste.

Glad you were able to save this piece, it looks amazing as a coat rack.
