Fabulous Repurposed Piano Bar 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:

– Flathead screwdriver – Hammer – Nails – Screws – Cleaning supplies – Brush

Step 1: Disassemble your Piano

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

Step 2: Cleaning

This is where your vacuum is going to be your best friend. The very bottom of the piano (inside the knee board) and inside the keybed are going to be the dustiest places.

Step 3: Prep and Paint

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 4: Piano Bar Construction

While the paint dries, get out your woodworking equipment and Hi-Vis jacket, because it’s construction time!

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