Piano Refinish!

A few months back my husband picked up a piano for me off of craigslist for $120! It definitely needed to be refinished! Here are the pics of it! I searched all over my computer and couldn'd find the before pic =(
Here it is after some pieces have been sanded....lots of sandpaper was used!
Here's the base of the piano finished! My husband did the whole thing...how lucky am I ?? All I did was distress the edges! My husband used a black stain instead of paint! I LOVE how the stain looks!
Close up! This piano is over 100 yrs old!
Here's a close up of the knobs...found at hobby lobby!


And the finished product...my husband made a different bench! I love it! It stores lots of music and my flute! I love the fabric too...Hobby Lobby!
Doesn't it look great?! My husband did such an amazing job!!!! I'm sooo lucky!!! He said he loved doing it, but he will never do it again! In case you were wondering...40 hours is the estimated time he spent on this....I sure am one grateful wife!
