Amazing DIY Piano Bar Repurpose Tutorial

Half of the fun of this project is discovery and seeing where your curiosity will take you, so dive in and have a blast!

Materials Needed – Repurposed Piano Bar

-Flathead screwdriver -Hammer -Nails -Screws -Soft bristle brush -Small vacuum -Canned air -Murphy’s oil soap wood cleaner -Painter’s tape -Mini-roller

Step 1: Disassemble your Piano

Most have a hinged lid that can be folded back, or some just have a solid lid. Unscrew any hinges and just pull it all the way off and set it aside.

Step 2: Cleaning

This is where your vacuum is going to be your best friend. The very bottom of the piano and inside the keybed are going to be the dustiest places. Suck up as much dust from these places as you can.

Next, deep clean!

Using a soft or medium toothbrush and water, brush the grime off of the tuning pins and pin block.

If you clean the wood really well and there is no peeling or damage that will cause problems in the future, a priming coat will just give you more work, so I skipped it.

Step 3: Prep and Paint

There are four things that we need to do to have this project come together: -Plexiglass window -Plexiglass shelf insert -Lideybed bar plank -Lid
