Piano Bench Recover

I had a problem.  An ugly piano bench cover.  I mean, really ugly...why did I ever think this looked ok?  I recovered this mossy green monster about 5 years ago when we got our new/old piano.  The piano has worked out well for us but the cover didn't quite jive with what I wanted in my music room/command station room as I like to call it.  I know that's a weird combination but I needed a place where I could keep all of our paperwork under control and we also needed a good place for our piano as our new home doesn't really have a good wall in the general area to place a piano.

All right, here is my cringe worthy reveal:

 
Pretty bad, huh?  Well I came up with a solution.  I went down to my fabric stash and was amazed at what I found.

Isn't this fun swirly pattern on a dark gray background so much fun?  Well I thought it was...and you have to admit is a huge improvement on the ugly green stuff.
 

 
All I did was pry out the old staples on the back of the padded board with a flat head screw driver.  Then I took this stapler and stretched my new fabric around the seat and stapled in place.  Gotta love the easiness of this project.
 
 
So much better!  I'm loving it again.  This piano was bought used.  I'm not sure how old it is but it came in great condition.  I know a big trend right now is to paint pianos.  I'm all for painting furniture, but this is something that will always stay its original color.  I love it just how it is even with all of its nicks and bangs.  Wow that sounds like a great life lesson...totally unintended.
 
Now the bench goes a bit better with the command station that I'm still working on to get it how I want.  It think I've gotten a pretty good start though.
 
 
It's so much easier to organize all of the paperwork that comes with a family of 6.  It is super convenient and right off of my kitchen so I can hear if chaos starts.  Believe me...that's important around here!
 
Happy Tuesday!
