Repurposed Piano with many options for functionality

Advanced
Before anyone goes crazy telling me I am crazy to do this to a piano, the soundboard was warped and the inner pieces were missing a LOT to be playable. As well, the veneer was destroyed from years of setting some sort of water containers on top. For those following my posts - THIS would be the piece that I demonstrated the * how to get veneer off* posting.
Now for the fun - The progress shots! This piece is so stunning in person. Photos do it no justice. We did a photo shoot to show 3 possible ways to use this. And yes I know there is a VCR in it HAHA!!! Shhh.... look away - it's just to give an example as an entertainment unit! (which would look amazing in our house so it's going to be a toughy to sell this beauty!) All of the inner parts will also be repurposed into furnishings or art. Nothing in this project will be sent to the dump! Aside from the stripped veneer scraps! Visit us at http://www.facebook.com/gypsybarn for more repurposing fun!
