From Old Piano to New Headboard
The headboard was re-purposed from a family heirloom piano that was my mother-in-laws and a gift from her father or my wife’s grandfather. It was also the piano my wife (Kay) learned to play. Kay was given the piano after her parents retired and moved to the lake so we’ve been storing the piano for at least 13 years. The soundboard was damaged so we never really considered having it repaired back to working condition. After some discussion and with permission from my wife I disassembled the piano. It has been disassembled for a couple of years but with a promise to re-purpose it into a useful piece of furniture.
