    I’ve been dying to see the finished result. It’s beyond divine. You are such a hoot and I can.not.wait to see the finished kitchen. Give Paul a kiss for being such a good, patient and faithful husband, not to mention exceedingly handy and exceptionally brilliant.

    Miss Elizabeth, I have to say, that is one of the most clever repurposes I’ve come across. Here at Tall Clover Kitchen del Disarray, I’m planning and plodding toward my eventual seizing of the space to my reflect my tastes and need for some functionality. Until then, I live vicariously through your charming antics and sweet success stories. Merci.

    I can’t believe you got that piano for FREE – such a beautiful piece of furniture! My grandmother had one very similar to that when I was a kid – I really wish we could have kept it!

    I made one for my daughter’s kitchen and put locking casters on it so she can move it around. They are very cool pieces!

    This sounds fascinating, but the video privacy is set to private. Is there any chance it will be available for public viewing again in the near future? Thank you!

    PLEEEEEEEEEEEASE post a picture of the finished project. I cannot view the video – something about my privacy settings not allowing me to see it. I have followed your posts step by step, and then when it came time to see the final product – nothing. It’s like a cliffhanger at the end of the season of your favorite show, and then they cancel it over the summer (cough, cough Dallas).

    Love that piano island and am just astounded at how much storage you got from it, excellent design!! You could get a smidge more if you added an enclosed shelf under the piano just big enough to store the flat awkward fabrics like long runners and extra large placements, etc.

    The marble topping is marvelous, my Mom had really old white marble in an antiq

      The marble topping is marvelous, my Mom had really old white marble in an antique home. She kept it remarkably white and stain free by dampening it and laying down a thin fine layer of baking soda every nite which leached out the stains and worked up a great sheen when she buffed it off in the morning. One ecky benefit…we sure knew when to set the mousetraps, lol.
