At work, one of my new co-workers was getting rid of some things that the old employee left behind.
Among these things was this amazing looking military crate.
When I noticed she wanted to get rid of it, I immediately asked her if I could take it. She said yes, and the plans started forming in my head of where I could use this.
Then I knew the perfect place....
The piano bench.
So good by chair, hello sweet piano bench.
This was a simple project. I put felt feet on the bottom of the bench (got to protect those floors), bought hinges for $4, used some left over plywood, foam and batting, muslin - I stapled it and I was done!
I think it is perfect. On top of looking amazing - it has storage, now I have a place to put all those piano books - and maybe my knitting.
What a great one hour project!
I am in am organizing frenzy around here as I try to make room for a baby. More organizing to come!!
Have a great weekend!
