I bought a piano bench at a yard sale.
It was quite plain and boring.
It was made with laminate wood and it had a vinyl covered bench seat.
I couldn't believe this brown tape stuff was originally part of the manufactured seat. The purpose of it was to hide the staples.
That's just ugly.
After cleaning it up and removing the old upholstery, I painted the entire seat with
Then I reupholstered the bench seat in a colorful Boho style printed fabric with coordinating bright piping. I made the piping from bias tape and pvc clothesline.
The seat isn't so boring now.
The "plain Jane" grew into a whole new style.
Painting the storage area of the bench gave the seat interior a much neater look.
I don't have a piano, but the bench seat looks great against the wall.
Or it could go with a vanity.
It can be a seat for playing other instruments.
It's certainly more colorful than it was before.
