Great way to upcycle / repurpose your old baby grand piano

Over the years I have seen many pianos just disposed of. Many people are in shock that it will cost then at least $300 to move a piano their friend is giving them for free. And that would be a for a small spinet piano that 2 movers can transport. An Upright Grand or baby grand piano will require 3 movers to transport. Often I have charged clients just to take away and dispose of the 300 – 800 pound monster. It is such a shame, many pianos have beautiful craftsmanship and many be over 100 years old. A cracked soundboard often makes the pianos not worth the effort to restore.

This is one way you can change your perspective and repurpose that old baby grand piano into a bookshelf or book case.
