If you have been following my office update you will know that one of the projects on my list was updating the piano bench.
Here it is. I believe my dad made this bench in his early wood working days over 30 years ago to match the piano.
I have no idea why the little hole but I am sure there was a reason.
My mother did the needlepoint work on the top.
Obviously the 30+ years of use have been a little hard on it.
It even has a hinged top for handy storage.
This week I picked up 1.5 m of this faux alligator for a bargain.
Although I am sure that the bench can be repaired and recovered I am contemplating creating my own. I don't really need the storage (since another project I am planning is a shelf, and I have a large storage closet), and I am not overly concerned about it being matchy matchy to the piano.
Here are a few benches I am contemplating.
here, or the metal legs which would match the Ikea Micke desk I am transforming also found here.
I think I will ponder this as I chisel and sand my desktop.
