Grand Piano Bookshelf Mounted like a trophy on a den wall, this gutted grand piano makes a sturdy, curvaceous shelving unit. Possibly better suited to a music room or study, a wall-mounted grand piano is guaranteed to be a conversation starter wherever it's put.
If I ever have a music room in my Dream House this is what I want my bookshelf to be! How To Build A Piano Bookcase I think I might like it for my craft room to display some craft books or my paints. Have a new search on craigslist....
