Repurposed Piano Bookshelves

As a little girl, I spent many hours tickling the ivories of our baby grand, but later I picked up a flute and never looked back.  When my parents built a new home it was a hard decision for Mom to sell the piano as it had been in our family for three generations.  While I’m happy it was restored, and is making beautiful music again, had I seen a repurposed piano first, it might come to live with us instead.  The interior of this piano case was removed and shelves were installed for books and accessories.  What I love about this wall-mounted piece is that the keyboard, pinblock and pins (just above the keys) are still intact.  The piano lyre with two pedals rests on the floor below.

repurposed piano - vintage Austrian organ remade into bookshelves - fat shack vintage via atticmagA 19th-century mahogany cabinet was made from an Austrian organ.  The wood grain, decorative labels and original legs ooze charm and character.  Reinventing these musical cases instead of discarding is not only a “green” thing, but allows them to keep playing their songs.
