In Which I Blame the Parisienne Farmgirl

It is, it's all her fault.  A few days ago on Facebook she posted pictures of what people had been doing with old pianos.  One of the pictures was of an old piano that had been made into a bar.
A converted piano
Mac fell in love with it.  He immediately remembered that Jere's, a huge antique store in downtown Savannah, had quite a few old pianos.  We'd planned on going into Savannah for Veteran's Day anyway, so noon yesterday found us parked in front of Jere's.  They know us well there, Jere has relieved us of more than a few dollars through the years, so they promptly told us to not worry about there being no parking spaces available, to just park in their loading zone because we'd probably be buying something.
And they were right.  Jerre made us a deal on an old piano that we couldn't refuse.  He's holding on to it till we can arrange for someone to pick it up for us.

Here's Jere"s

Mac is looking forward to making it into a bar.  I told you he could do anything.
But as I said at the beginning, I blame Angela over at Parisienne Farmgirl for this.


  1. That looks like a fun project; can't wait to see the end result!

  2. Quite the project. My brother converted quite a few old twin bedsteads into children's toy chests. What goes around...

  3. Can't wait to see the end result. I do think you should have piano music playing in the background. HaHa.

  4. I can see why you fell in love with it, how fabulous. I can't wait to see your work of art when it's finished x

  5. Sorry Weaver, I'm a pianist too, but trust me, inorder for this piano to ever be played again it would have had to have been taken apart and completely reconstructed.

  6. I have never seen anything like this before! It will be interesting to see how it goes. xx

  7. What a fun and clever reuse. There are a lot of those old beauties sitting around, a lot of them too heavy to move.


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
