Has anyone ever seen, or made, a bench from an old piano? I thought I had seen one here before, but can't seem to find it now. Thanks!!

Never saw such a thing but I guess you can make something out of anything! LOL Was it a pretty big bench? Did they cut the legs down or something?

Here is a website for a desk made from a piano. I have not seen benches.

My DH has 'his space' in our den-which is open to the kitchen. Not a very big area and he needed a coffee table for his remotes, etc. I took a piano bench & painted the legs and apron in a blue/grey semi gloss. (Theme in the den is nautical) Then I got an old world map (ebay), cut it to the size of the bench top (leaving a 2" edge for a border-which I painted in a brick red (my accent color in the room). I decoupaged the map onto the tabletop, antiqued it & put a urethane topcoat on it. Looks aawesome! To tie in with this-I made a wall clock& used a remnant of the map in the center of the clock as well. Any theme would work on the tabletop.

I've seen them cut down to ottoman height and padded for a foot rest.
