Five Secrets Revealed BY CONSTANCE ROSENBLUM In New York City, houses and apartment buildings typically conceal their private sides when you are introduced to them. But tap the walls or peer into the back of a closet, and who knows what you might find? A hidden staircase, a secret passageway, or walls that pivot could lead to unknown territory. Here are five homes in which all is not what it seems.

Apparently, an employee of Piano Works in Atlanta took this irreparable piano home and turned it into a planter that pumps out 2,000 gallons of water an hour. Oh, and it’s freaking beautiful, too.

"Waterfall Piano." An old baby grand piano re-purposed into a very creative and unique outdoor water feature. Not only is this brilliant so as not to let the piano go to waste, but this is truly a piece of art! | Built and Designed by Bill Metzgar, Florida, United States. | Caption by Jenn Brown.
Old piano turned into outdoor fountain (Idea by Bill Metzgar) This piano is an 1885 Steinway. It had really bad termite damage to the inner structure so yes, it was beyond repair. It was turned into a fountain for Bill's mom for Mother's Day. It has a 2000 gallon per hour pump in the pond and a flex hose from the pump up into the piano where a construction of pvc pipes was used to distribute the water across the keys. It was sealed with fiberglass resin.
Old Piano Turned Into Outdoor Fountain... Good idea or not? Rather then let this old grand piano go to waste, a creative soul has repurposed this beautiful instrument into an outdoor water fountain. http://www.facebook.com/AmazingW0rld

Love to swim but hate the chlorine? Why not convert your pool into a natural pool that offers a chemical-free way to stay cool. Natural Swimming Pools recreate pristeen ponds and mountain pools found in nature. The water is kept sparkling clean by circulating it through an ecosystem of water plants. The result is a lush indigenous aquatic garden cradling a clear, natural pool, the water of which is perfectly clear, soft on the skin and infused with healing energy.

Shoes, coats, and bags have a way of piling up in an entryway, never quite making it to the closet. If that's the case in your home, consider this idea: Ditching the closet door and hanging hooks, baskets, and a bench instead.

Backyard Pool Slide!
A Water Slide | 29 Amazing Backyards That Will Blow Your Kids’ Minds -- If I do have a pool, it has to have some kind of epic waterslide. Maybe there'll be two pools, one for the kids with a whole bunch of fun stuff (waterslide, inner tube floating circle) and one for the adults (poolside bar, beach entry). Or something. Also, this reminds me of that terrible kid's movie where the kid had a waterslide attached to his room, so he could go from his room inside the house to the pool (bad idea).
