A while ago, my mom found an upright piano at a thrift store for only $25 for us. Couldn’t pass up an offer like that. The piano was a great condition, everything worked perfectly on it. However, the piano didn’t come with a bench. So we commissioned my grandpa to build us a bench. We purchased the legs from the farmer’s market in Alabama last year. Then my grandpa did the rest. My grandma and I covered the top with a cushion and fabric I bought from Joann with a coupon. I didn’t care to have the bench match the piano because who knows how long we will keep the piano. But the piano bench, we will keep forever.
After doing the cushion, it took me a while to get around painting the rest of the bench. That was one of my recent painting projects I finally got around to doing. Piano bench. Check!
Here’s the thing. I only play a little piano. But I hope my children will take lessons and practice on this piano while sitting on this bench for many years to come. I would love to learn to play the piano with them. For now, both girls hop on the bench and bang on the keys pretending to play songs. I love hearing them “play”.
