I am so excited about this project! It took me awhile to come up with the idea that I wanted for it. Of course everyone said paste music to it but you know me.....looking for something different.
I started with this vintage piano bench.
The greatest thing about this is it has storage!
I knew that the color had to change after all that what my blog is all about!
I decided to paint the top in a cream color and the bottom black.
I knew I wanted to do something french so I found a print from
It is an old french postcard.
I distressed the top with distressing glaze.
I had wooden knobs leftover from my dresser redo project. They were old and worn.
I wanted to use them on the front of the bench. I also wanted to incorporate the french theme of the handwritten postcard.
I had some scrapbook paper left from my blue cabinet makeover so I cut circles and Mod Podged them to the front of the knob.
Then I went to my stamp collection. I rummaged through and picked out the french stamps I wanted and copied them on a printer. I did not want to use the originals. I cut them and Mod Podged them to the scripted paper.
These will be applied to the front and back of bench.
I hand painted a projected image on the top.
Very french oo la la!
Then with a heavy hand I began to sand the heck out of it.
I then attached three knobs to the front and three to the back. I even painted and signed the inside of the lid. I applied fabric toile to the inside.
This is the back
I love the knobs!
This has to be one of my favorite projects to date!
