Mr. Kennedy's Opus

Mr. Kennedy, design star and creator of flawless furnishings, has composed his Opus. This great work is a 'Piano Bar' - pun intended. What began as a forlorn, broken, and damaged baby grand piano case has, with his imagination and skill, been transformed into a stunning one-of-a-kind piece of art.

With the lid open, it takes a moment to realize that all is not as it seems...
Beautiful lines, a softly antiqued white finish, mirror, and lights built-in beneath the case highlight the elegance and beauty of this remarkable piece. Can you just imagine serving your guests a glass of champagne or a martini from this?!

Where the keyboard used to be, there is now a mirrored tray that glides forward to provide space for mixing & serving drinks. (Shown pulled out @ 2" here - extends to expose full 12" wide mirror).

Inside, there is a deep storage area for liquor bottles, glassware, and an ice bucket. The front part of the lid is hinged to fold back to expose just this part, OR to lift up along with the rear lid to expose the entire interior. The larger section in back is a wine rack, able to store ten bottles of wine. With the lid closed, it forms a perfect stand-up bar for serving. You could, of course, add a few simple barstools.

This project has been underway for quite some time, and it is a thrill to see it finally on display at Faded Elegance in Snohomish. We've expanded our space just to fit her in, and she shines like a bonafide glamour superstar in the spotlights. Applause, Applause!

((Oh, and by the way..... she has a sister. ;0)
A sister who is a bit more vintage style, a bit more musical, and a bit more prone to showing off. She's being prepped and primped now, and will make her 'stage debut' at Farm Chicks.))
