My first piano to bar conversion. An 1895 upright piano from Packard Piano Company in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Purchased on EBay for $100. I had a lot of fun doing this, and was amazed at the craftsmanship that went into its construction. Tried to save and reuse as much as possible. Iron “harp” will become a waterfall feature on my deck. Piano “action” (keys and rocker arms) is now wall art. Bottom cabinet holds 20 wine bottles. Middle storage area houses bottles of spirits. Top storage hold shot glasses and bar supplies. 8 LED lights with 15 different colors looks great at night. I will be picking up a second piano this week and will do it again. By the way, there were nearly 5000 pieces in this piano! Thanks for looking.
