So I can say it is officially finished! I have finished the piano bench, which was one of my favorite projects this year! The best part was seeing how happy the community center staff and tenants were to receive it! John Varvatos did an excellent job of repurposing this old piano and I wanted to follow suit with upcycling this lumber from an old stage! Please feel free to comment or suggestions as I am always looking for ways to connect with furniture appreciators/ makers!
