We're finally getting started on the Piano Bar!
We acquired this beautiful piano for free back in 2013 while we were living at RAF Cosford, Ben had been watching a Kirstie Allsopp show and had become inspired to create something wonderful with it. But it sat in our porch there for 18 months until we moved to Oxfordshire, lived in the shed there for a year until we moved back to Telford and has lived in our garage for a year until we finally got round to starting it!
Ben has stripped most of this and I had the pleasure of trying to get all of the wire off, I've still got some left to do but my fingers got blistered doing this and I had to stop for now! Now it's started I'm hoping it won't be an eternity until we continue working on it and get it done.
Below is a picture of some ticket pieces that came out of the piano, they were being used to prop a piece of wood so it was a good find for us and I'm glad we took all of the bits out to discover these. From the date on the tickets our lovely piano was manufactured before 1893!
This is going to be a personal project and I can't wait to get it done and fill it up :)
